For the basic construction – you will need:
For the pages
12 sheets of 6x6 cardstock, I used Bazzill ‘Kraft’.
The easiest way to get 6x6 pages is to divide a sheet of12x12 into quarters.
This way only
3 full sheets of cardstock
are required toproduce 12 pages.A sewing machine to secure the edges of the pockets.
Alternatively you could hand-stitch the pocket using a strongneedle and thread. The amount decorative stitching you’d wantto add after that depends entirely on your patience andstamina!
use eyelets, brads or staples along the edges to securethe flap.
For the covers
2 sheets of thick cardstock or thin chipboard.Two book rings to hold your album pages together.
: thread a ribbon through the holes;
use a large bull-dog clip;
or use a Bind It All.
For the decoration – you will need:
: I used 12 double-sided papers which gave methe use of
pattern choices for each month’s page.
follow a single colour / pattern theme throughout thealbum.
: I used the
cards [from thewww.craftytemplates.co.uk‘Quirky Kit’].
you can find free printable calendars online which youcan then print off onto your own card.
