Made it from scratch: OA Make it Merry Mini - Page 2

It's time for page 2!

(And I'm not really sure why my sister thought it was hilarious and I clearly wasn't enthused, but hey... it a memory, right?)

Alright, grab another page base and add a piece of 5"wide x 6" high pattern paper from the October Afternoon 8x8 paper pad. Adhere to the page base and patterned paper together.

Face the back of page 1 to the back of page two. Trace the location of the ring binding holes onto the second page, then punch the holes with a 1/4" punch.

Stitch the edges. This time I just sewed straight lines and let them cross in the corners.

Photo size: 3.5" wide x 3.75" high.
White mat size: 3.75" wide x 4" high.
Green cardstock mat size: 4" wide x 4.5" high.
Make a photo + mat sandwich and set aside for a minute.

Cut a piece of black chevron May Arts ribbon to 5.5 inches and notch the ends.

Cut a piece of silver tinsel pipe cleaner to 4.25" long.

Cut a piece of Maya Road white roses trim to 4."

Use double sided tape/red line tape to affix the black chevron ribbon on the page so that the notch in the banner fits around the bottom binding hole.

Affix the photo + mat stack so it sits partially over the black chevron ribbon.

Sew the raw edge of the roses trim over the bottom edge of the black chevron ribbon

Affix the silver pipecleaner along the bottom of the black chevron ribbon using a tiny attacher.

Cut a section of the word strip out of the Holiday Style Miscellany pack. Outline it with a thin black pen (I used a .03 nib). Attach it to a scrap piece of the snowflake paper and trimmed out leaving a border.

At the top add the rectangular label from the Witch Hazel label set.
Add the year using the numbers from the Peppermint Mini Market stickers.
Get out "December 2012" stamp from the set that comes in the Make in Merry Kit. Ink only the "December" part of the stamp. Then grab the "Hey Santa!" stamp, ink it and stamp it above where you stamped "December."

Clean your stamps (or not) and you're done!
