For the "pages" I have used the giant playing cards. The front page is covered with a paper from the Christmas 2006 HOTP kit. So it is quite versatile and not just for Christmas. The strip of transparency is also from HOTP. I added a little beer mug with a tiny little safety pin to the strip. The beer mug is from a set of charms, there are 6 in a pack and ... they are only 90p as they have 70% !!!! off. To add the title I cut out some of the circle letters and added a brad to adhere them.
charm with some ribbon. The little photo corners are made by cutting some triangles from a square of fabric swatch sticker. And just to let you know the fabric stickers have 75% off so they are only 45p!!!
Again the 4th and 5th pages were covered in the Christmas kit paper. The 4th page I added another fabric swatch sticker for a photo to go on. Another charm which says "beer beer" and that is held on by some ribbon and a brad too. And guess what the brads have 50% off too!! For the 5th page I cut out a rectangle so that some of the playing card showed through. I added a square piece of co-ordinating paper and cut out a spade to add to the corner. To finnish off this page I added a little silver domino. So this would be the "games" page .
For page 6 I again used the papers from the Christmas kit adding a strip of the fabric swatch sticker to the top. I then added some HOTP copper charms with the theme of travel. Page 7 was covered with the black glimmer paper but I cut out a circle so that the 8 of the playing card showed. I again added a transparency to the bottom and finally added some metal buttons.
To hold the album together I punched two holes and tied it all up with some ribbon.
With all the bargains to be had in the shop it works out to be a very inexpensive gift.
