Instructions: Put the 6 x 6" layered cards together to form a mini album. Do not worry about the circle cut outs as we will be covering those with papers.
Take a 8 x 6" sheet of cardstock and score at 4.5", 5.5" and 6.5" to create a flap cover for the mini album. Fold on score lines and on the 4.5" end, cut corners so end resembles an envelope. Attach long end to back of album and place on album so envelope end folds over front cover. Then attach your magnets, one on flap and one to center of the front cover of the album.
To make this album more sturdy, I did add black chipboard to front and back and flap. So cut a 12 x 12" piece of black chipboard to fit these sizes. Cover front and back of all pages, front and back of album and front and back of cover flap with papers from Classic Sunflower Collection.
Next, stamp and die cut your sunflowers using Rich Cocoa Memento ink on white cardstock and your classic rose leaves. Color using Distress inks, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge. Mold and shape your leaves and flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, detail with crystal clear.
On black cardstock die cut your Botanic Window, Festive Holiday die and Delicate Border die. I used the Delicate Border die on the first page to hold some photo mats in place.
I cut out some A2 panels from the collection and used throughout the album. I kept this album inside pretty simple, but put lots of details on the cover. Add ribbon, trinket pins and gold thread to cover. Detail the sunflowers and leaves with Crystal Clear and dab touches of gold wax.
You now have a fun way to use the oval or circle layered cards.
