Webster's Pages {March} Sprinkles Craftbox Inspiration~!

Hi everyone :)~ Today I'm going to share with you an accordion-style mini book that I put together using the March Sprinkles Craftbox from Webster's Pages- on sale NOW- and will be over the next 48 hours. Every month, Webster's Pages releases one of these boxes filled with beautiful, coordinating WP products for only $10! And today I'm going to introduce you to the contents of this month's box, as well as my project and instructions!

"{March} Sprinkles Craftbox Album"


These boxes go FAST- so order yours today~!

But before you head out, here are some closeups and instructions for how to use the March Sprinkles Craftbox for your own accordion-style album :):






Directions (this project and directions can also be downloaded through the Websters' Pages site HERE):

1. Take one of the 3 papers provided in the Sprinkles Craftbox. Since the length of this paper is 18.75", you will need to take a ruler and measure every 3.75", make a mark, and use those marks as a guide for where to make each fold to create the accordion-style pages of this album. (I used the "B" side of the paper- the side with the green circles- as the outside of my album). Cover each inside page with a piece of cardstock (I used white).

2. (Page 1): Each of your other two papers will be used for decorating the inside of your album. I used the "A" side on one and the "B" side on the other. For Page 1, cut a 1.5" x 6" strip from the "A" side paper (the paper containing the cards images). Adhere to the right-hand side of your page. You can use a stamp and ink of your choice to accent the border if you'd like. Next, cut a circle shape from your "B" side paper. Layer it, along with a paper doily from your stash and one of the netted doilies included in the Craftbox. Add your photo, the "Together" card from the "A" side paper, two stick pins, and a vintage button. For a final touch, fussy cut a few of the borders cut from the circle images provided on the "B" paper.

3. (Page 2): Cut a border using the circle images from the "B" paper. Layer it over a paper doily along the right-hand side of your page. Next cut a .75" banner from the "A" paper. Fussy cut a partial circle from the "B" paper and layer alongside your banner, along with some stamping. Cut one of the "Loved" cards from the "A" paper and stick it behind your banner, allowing half of it to stick out the left side. Add photo, a diamond shape from the "B" paper, and a couple more trimmings from the circles on the "B" paper. Finally, split the cameo pieces at the top of the brown stick pin and adhere half of it to the diamond piece.

4. (Page 3): Cut a 2.5" x 3.75" piece from the "A" paper. Adhere it 2/3 of the way down your page. Add some stamping underneath. Cut a half-circle from the "B" paper and layer it along the top of your page, add a paper doily and a fussy cut image from the "A" paper. Cut one of the peach-colored netted doilies in half and stick it along the left side of your page. Cut a 1.75" x 4.75" piece from the "B" paper and create a banner piece. Layer over the top of your netted doily, add your photo, and stick one of the "Happy" cards cut from the "A" paper under the bottom of your photo.

5. (Page 4): Cut a 1.5" x 6" piece from the "A" paper and adhere along the left-hand side of your page. Add a 1.5" x 6" banner over top of it. Stamp along the edge of your papers before adding a paper doily and a circle piece near the top of your page. Add photo before sliding a "Beauty" card cut from the "A" paper under the right-hand side of your photo. Cut some of the edgings off of a circle from the "B" paper and use to adorn the top of your page as well as under the bottom of your photo. Finally, add a vintage button and a bundle of fussy-cut flowers cut from the "A" paper.

6. (Page 5): Cut a 1.75" x 5" piece from the "A" paper; adhere to the right-hand side of page. Stamp along bottom of page. Layer a paper doily, circle image from the "B" paper, and the remainder of the peach netted doily and place to the lower-right side of the page. Add photo and cut more edges from a circle on the "B" paper to decorate the top of page and to the bottom left side of the paper doily. Cut another diamond shape from the "B" paper and add the other half of the brown cameo from the stick pin taken apart earlier. Cut the word "Life" from the appropriate card on the "A" paper and place along the bottom right-hand corner of your photo.

7. Display and enjoy!
