I started with the cutting file base. Using black card stock, I cut the shape out 3 times. Then, instead of folding the pieces along the center score line to make the card, I cut along the line to make 2 pieces. That gave me 6 pieces (or pages) total but, I actually only used 5 of them for my album.
Once I had the black base pages cut out, I created an internal offset in my Silhouette software. I used the offset to cut out 10 cute pattern papers to layer on the base pages.
I chose pretty pattern papers from the 6x6 pad in Lori's new Echo Park Bee Happy Collection (links below). I love how all of the patterns look layered together when the album is fanned out :)
Lori's Nested Scallop circles (links below) make great photo mats. I punched out 2.5" round circles for inside the scallop shape. Perfect for some of your favorite pictures. Then, I embellished each page with stickers and die cuts from the Bee Happy Collection.
This adorable bee / honey theme is so wonderfully generic, you could use this mini for photos of ...
- Friends / best friend
- Everyday photos
- Your pet
- A farmer's market
- A tea party
- A bridal or baby shower
This would also make a bee-utiful handmade gift for:
- Mother's Day filled with pictures of the littles or grandlittles
- New baby - this would make a sweet little brag book!
- Bridal or baby shower gift
- A thank you gift
I hope you like my take on Lori's adorable Honey Jar card! Here are the files I used ...
This one has small flowers in the lower left corner of the jar but I just trimmed those off for my album.
