Felt Recipe Mini-Album

Hello and Welcome!  This is Shanna today from Caffeinated Craftiness.

I am really excited to share the start of what I am hoping will be a long-term project of mine with the new Recipe Mini-Album die set from I-Crafter!  I love all the elements in the set and knew right away I wanted to pull out my felt for the cover!

I started by finding a scrap piece of chipboard to use as my base.  Chipboard is easily found in a lot of packaging—such as cardboard mailers.  I used one I had gotten in the mail a while ago and cut it down to size so it would fit through the opening in my die cutting machine.  Then I simply sandwiched the chipboard and the large scallop-edged die onto my Magnetic I-mend Pro deck (LOVE this thing!!) and ran it through the machine.  It die cuts pretty easily actually.

I needed a cardstock cover for the inside of the album covers, so I grabbed some pattern paper from my stash and die cut those as well using the same die.

 

Next I grabbed my felt.  I picked the colors and cut the felt down for each die before placing them onto the I-mend Pro deck.  The beauty of a magnetic deck meant I didn’t have to mess with trying to tape my dies to the felt—which if you have ever worked with felt you *know* how much easier that made things!

After all the felt pieces were die cut I used glue to adhere them to the felt.  You could stitch them on as well, but I really like the clean look of how they all layered.  Although—I might be stitching some elements on future pages for sure!

 

Thanks so much for stopping bye today! I hope you enjoyed today’s project.
