'Heroic' Star Mini Album With Shaker Cover
You just automatically get that patriotic feeling with the 'Heroic' collection by Authentique. The colors are primarily the good ol' red, white & blue & the collection is filled with images & sayings that perfectly represent patriotism.
With this collection I decided to do a star shaped mini album with a shaker cover. I can't even say how long I've been wanting to give this whole shaker craze a try--well now I can finally say I did it! My shaker is composed of several sequins in red, white & blue along with star shaped sequins & a dash of tinsel added to the mix. The mini measures approximately 5" x 5" inches & is held together with a book ring. I've added several pieces of ribbon, twine & tulle to decorate the book ring.
I've added two small kraft pockets that store two tags per pocket. These tags can be used for journaling or for storing names, places & dates.
All of the red glitter circle photo mats are adhered to black foam in order to make them 'pop' off the page a bit & add some dimension to the mini. These circles can be used to store/display pictures measuring up to 2 1/4" inches in diameter.
Below you'll find a brief video showcasing the mini. I hope this inspires some of you to create some patriotic themed projects for this upcoming 4th of July. Enjoy!

Thank you for the sweet video. Kay I think you've just inspired me to create a similar journal with dates, location and a few photos over a 20 yr time span for my Military son. I LOVE this.ReplyDelete
