Watch this tutorial for tips on using the Festive Holly collection here.

Instructions: Cut 7 pieces of red Cardstock at 4 x 12", 7 pieces of Green Cardstock at 4 x 11", 7 pieces of Crème Cardstock at 4 x 10". Fold all pieces in half, glue the red ones on top of each other when they are folded. On the Green and the Crème pieces you put tape at the end of both short sides, you can see how to do this on my blog. Now put the Green ones in between the Red ones and tape the sides on top of each other. Now on the Crème ones you cut a shape out of the middle of the right side (you can use any shape you like) then you tape the Crème ones (only the left side) in between the Green ones like you did with the other color, don’t tape the right side yet because we are going to put a pattern paper behind the opening. In the paper pad you will find lots of images that you can use as a background, after you put the background in you can tape the right side down.

For the cover you cut gray board at 4 ¼  x 6 ¼ Cover this with pattern paper, take a piece of bookbinders tape and fold this around the spine then you can get your ribbon and tape this on the top to the back, now you can glue your covers on the album.

For the Shaker box on the cover, I used an empty spool cover the inside and outside of the spool. Now glue an image from the paper pad inside the spool and put some Crystal Clear in it. Diecut a circle from clear acetate and glue on top of spool. Diecut a circle frame using two scalloped dies on designer paper and glue this on top to complete the shaker box spool. Diecut 2 decorative arches from white cardstock and adhere them on the cover creating a circle. Adhere shaker box onto cover using hot glue. Add gold corner stickers onto corners.

Stamp Holly Berries in black ink onto white cardstock diecut with coordinating die. Color, and shape them and glue them on top of the shaker box, add some frosty accent on the berries and some 3D snow at last you can put some tiny snowflake stickers on the cover.

On each page choose designer paper and decorate as desired. I added more holly berries along the diecut frames inside.
