Hey everyone. Here is another simple and affordable craft idea using materials and equipment purchased at K-Mart. This is a great idea to have at a Birthday Part for people to write their well wishes to the birthday boy/girl. A lot of people nowadays hire those photo booth set ups for guests to take photos of themselves at their party. This would be a great book to display all those photo! They would look great with those Polaroid pictures in them too! Or if you are not the party type you could just fill with some great photos and give it to someone on their birthday as a gift. Anyway I had a lot of fun making it!
Here is what you need. Most of the supplies can be found in the K-Mart craft department except for the Washi tape which is located in the stationary area.
Because you are going to spray the paint onto the book front use some tape to cover the ribbon so that it doesn’t get paint on it
Carefully spray the front of the book with the gold and silver paint. Make sure you have a good cover sheet to protect everything else from the paint as there will be a bit of over spray!
Allow to dry. I use a small pedestal fan to speed up the drying process
Remove the tape
While you book is drying cut out a square sheet of paper from the ‘Designer Papers’ pad
Spray the page with the gold or silver paint. Allow to dry
Choose another page from the ‘Designer Paper’ pad and cut out a smaller square measuring 9cm x 9cm. Use a ruler or make a template if you like and draw around it
Cut out the square
Stick the number stickers in place in the middle of the small square
When the paint is dry attach the large square to the book front with double sided tape
Attach the small square in the middle of the large square with double sided tape
Now you can start decorating the inside pages with the designers papers, heart punch, stickers and Washi tape
Here are a whole heap of sample pages to help inspire you.
