Instructions: The Album measures 10" x 9". This is a pop up mini album made in mixed media style. Each page opens up to reveal the sea floor with all its features and creatures. To make a page, follow the accordion style method. Cut 8 black cardstock measuring 8" x 8". Cut another 8 black cardstock measuring 8 1/2" x 8". Score the latter pieces at the 8" score line and fold. Apply glue and stick the scored portion to the 8" x 8" black card stock on right side. Fold and continue to make 8 such pages. Fold in accordion style.

To make the pop up tab on each page, follow these cut marks. Take a folded page and make slits that are 1" or 1 1/2" in width and extend the slit on either side of the fold line. Make 2-3 such slits and tabs at equal distance. These are popped out onto the front and serve as stands for die cuts and photo mats. Make 2-3 tabs on each page. Now cut pattern paper from Under the Sea Paper pad and adhere to the base page according to the page design.

Make a sea floor by tearing and matching different patterns. Add texture to the pages with stencils and modeling paste. Spray with different colours and dry between each layers. Apply lots of glitter, embossing powder, beads etc to give the look of sea floor. Cut several deigns from the Paper pad using the matching dies. Attach to the pages as shown according to design. Create the look of sea floor by applying, crackle paste, flower soft and distress glitter. In places, add the Hibiscus flowers made from Tropical hibiscus cling stamp and die and shape them on flower shaping kit.

Cut two pieces of chip board 10" x 9" and a spine 3" x 10". Make album cover with Under the sea papers. Attach the first part of page to the front cover and last page to back cover. Decorate the front of album as shown. Attach ribbon and charms. The complete album can be viewed here
