Hey Guys! Imikimi Team here! Today’s craft blog is for all those people out there who love scrapbooking and those who want to get started. We’re going to teach you how to make an Altoids Mini Scrapbook!
- Altoids tin
- Magazine or Scrapbook Paper
- X-acto Knife
- Regular Colored Paper
First we will need to make a cover. Lay your Altoids tin on top of your magazine or scrapbook paper. Now use your X-acto knife to cut around the top of the Altoids tin so you can make a cover that is a perfect fit.
Now we want to follow the same procedure, but we’re going to make the two inner pieces.
Use your glue to attach the cover and the inner pieces to your Altoids tin. Let dry.
Take your colored paper and cut a strip across the length of the paper about 3-½” in width. Fold your paper accordion style so that each folded segment is about 2” wide.
Now comes the fun part! Cut out pictures from magazines or photos, use candy wrappers and ribbons, who write down fun memories. It’s your time to be creative!
Once you’re done, you should have something like this:
So that’s that! This will make a great gift to give for someone who love showing off pictures of their children, grandchildren, pets, or anything they love and hold near and dear to their heart. Be sure to stay tuned for another Imikimi craft blog coming soon!
