LOs using "3 Bugs in a Rug" product

Here are two LOs that I completed using the gorgeous '3 Bugs in a Rug' product range. The bright colours and fun designs are great for scrapping about kids and are suitable for both boys and girls.

These and two other LOs (that I forgot to photograph LOL) have been at the shop for a few days now. Thanks for looking :) Sarah G

Product Preview: Graphic 45 "Botanicabella & Playtimes Past"Take Home Project Transparency Mini-display Book
  1. Cut out images from the 12"x 12"Patterned Paper and ink the edges with black ink.
  2. Stamp your display book with flourish designs using white Stazon ink or hand draw designs with a white glaze pen.
  3. Trim photos and start inserting images into each pocket to create mini-layouts both front and back of each section of the transparency. Adhere the images to each other so they don't move around.
  4. Punch a hole into the center edge of the front panel and insert a large brad. Tie the end of the hat elastic around the brad to form the closure of the book.
  5. Knot embroidery thread through your buttons and glue dot onto the center of each paper flower. Adhere the flowers to the outside of your display book.
  6. Attach more brads through the entire pages to further hold images in place. Complete with a few additional images glued to the outside of the display book.
