This family album is unique and definitely one of a kind. I decoupaged the "F" with small 2x2 squares of paper from the paper I chose for the project. The "F" is paper mache' that you can purchase at any craft store. I think I bought this one from Joanns'.
After the "F" was dry and decorated I moved on to the book.
The book was created out of chipboard and heavy cardstock. Decide how many pages you want in the book and bind them together with a sewing machine. This should give the book longevity. The rest of the book and decorations are up to you. Feel free and try some new techniques. The distressing and antiquing are a wonderful way to start. Just make everything look old and used.
I had great fun with this book. All of tags you see were made from old postcards. If you have old "family things" that you would like to use, feel free and try them. I bet it will look fabulous.
Thanks and have a great time.
