Hambly take 2:
If you are like me and enjoy making gifts for people this is a fun and simple mini book, not to mention cute, for baby or toddler. The key to making your own minis are the tools. My recent obsession is the Corner Chomper. I love it cause it works great with the Hambly Clear Overlays (which is a thick piece of acrylic). It rounds the corners of chipboard and other thick materials... like the Crop-A-Dile.
Clear Overlays are cool because your paper trimmer can cut them and then you can use double sided patterned paper to get 2 pages in one shot. Sometimes I get frustrated covering both sides of chipboard. ha!
Another great tool for this project is spray adhesive... is adhesive considered a tool... ?:) Spray an even amount of adhesive on the acrylic it dries clear and secures the paper. Just try not to get it on your finger tips and then touch the rest of the album cause it will leave your little prints on it... learn from my oops. :) I used a spray adhesive by Elmers, you should be able to find one anywhere. First, I cut the clear overlays and patterned paper into 3X4 pieces.
Then, I sprayed the acrylic and adhered the paper.
Next, I applied the rubons to the front of the acrylic pieces & chomped the corners.
Last, I added the frame and owl sticker & bling to the cover. American Crafts minimarks for the 3 'animals'. Poked holes in the pieces with the Crop-A-Dile & added a ring.
