Made it from scratch: OA Make it Merry Mini - Page 3

Today's page is fairly simple, so let's get started shall we?

First off, take out one of the Tin Holtz seasonal Christmas Muse Tokens and add white paint to it. Allow the paint to dry a bit and then lightlightly wipe the paint off of the raised areas. Grab a safety pin and add paint to it as well. Set both aside to dry while you work on the rest of the page.

Next take the leftover strips from the first page and cut 2 strips that are 5" wide by 1.5."

After that cut a piece of yellow striped patterned paper to 5" wide by 3.25" tall.

Glue down the two snowflake pieces first and then the yellow piece. If you plan to stitch on your layout make sure you don't have adhesive in the stitching area. If you're not going to stitch it, then make sure you glue it down real good. :)

Punch the holes for the binding using your template and stitch around the page about 1/4" from the edge.

Cut a piece of May Arts green chevron ribbon to 24," wrap around the page and tie in a bow at the top.

Size photo to 3.5" wide by 3.5" high. Leave a white border around your photo or mat it on white (3.75"w x 3.75cardstock. Then mount onto red cardstock sized to 4" x 4." Mount over the top of the ribbon to the background page.

Hopefully by now your paint on the Christmas Muse Token is dry. Put it on the safety pin and attach to the knot in the ribbon bowl.

And...that's it! You're done!
