DVD Tin Scrapbook
by Julie Buhler
Turn a simple DVD tin into a mini scrapbook.
- DVD Tin (purchased from Effectuality.com)
- One sheet of 12" x 12" Patterned Paper
- Ten Clear Envelopes
- Cutting/Scoring Tool
- Two Jumbo Eyelets
- 10" Length of ribbon
- Corner Rounder (large)
- Sticky Strip™
- Tombow Glue™
Cut the patterned paper into two pieces, one measuring 5 1/4" x 7 1/4", the other measuring 5 1/4" x 8 1/2".
Keep the scraps for decorating later on.
Score the 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of patterned paper at 1 1/4" on the short side.
Use the corner rounder to round every corner of both pieces of patterned paper.
Make sure the flap is folded over while rounding the corners of the scored paper piece.
Line clear envelopes up, making sure bottom edges are aligned.
Remove adhesive backing and adhere envelopes to one another, leaving the adhesive backing on the final envelope.
Center the envelope booklet under the flap of the 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of patterned paper. Remove the adhesive backing from the final envelope. Fold the flap down to adhere the envelope booklet to the patterned paper flap.
Measure and mark 2 1/2" from each side of the flap.
Use the 3/16" hole punch on a Crop-a-Dile™ to punch holes on the marked spots.
Place jumbo eyelets into the punched holes and use the Crop-a-Dile™ to set them.
This will ensure the pages will stay in the book.
Thread ribbon through the eyelets and tie.
Add Sticky Strip™ or other strong adhesive to the back side of the finished booklet
Adhere it to the deepest part of the tin.
Use Sticky Strip™ or Tombow Glue™ to adhere more patterned paper pieces to the inside of the tin.
Finish your tin!
Decorate the front and fill your pages. Finished, the paper for the front should measure 5 3/16" X 7 1/4".
You can use this little booklet as a special photo album, or you can create 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" size scrapbook pages to fill the pages.
