Floral Album Cover Tutorial

By Aya El


“Hello friends, I hope you have an amazing day ahead! Today’s project is an altered photo ring album featuring, out of this world, Fairie Wings paper collection from Graphic 45.



Step by Step Tutorial: 

1-I Measured the album ring front cover and I cut the papers accordingly. 

2- I fussy cut some fairies and flowers from the 8x8 fairie wing paper pad. 

3- For the centerpiece, I choose Deco doily the largest one and cover it with Finnabair wax in color electric violet to match my background paper.

4- I added a clock die cut from fairie wing assortment die cuts, inserted metal clock hands using brads, then adhered everything to the center of the deco doily.

5- I added handmade flowers and leaves ( I will link the video tutorial or the handmade flowers) For extra embellishments, I added glue glitter, gemstones, and butterflies.

I love what you did here with the notebook, I want to use this same paper package for a newborn baby girl album so you have given me cougar to do this plus the clock was a add touch I can’t wait to get started on it. But I would love to have you to help me with this I’m a new crafting in this area . Your work that you did I would never have thought it if I didn’t see it for myself. So now I need to order supplies and to become one of your subscriber I’m doing that right after this thank you Graphics 45
