Coptic book mini album using Boxed Cards

Friday, May 17, 2019

Hey friends,
it's Lisa here today and I'm sharing with you my very first coptic book inspired by Paige Evans.
Mini albums are the perfect way to document your favorite pictures from vacation or a trip. You can make your mini albums as big as you’d like and insert a lot of photos. @lisafonseca1985 created a coptic book mini album, using the boxed cards from the #confettiwishes collection by @pinkpaislee and super cute embellishments from @paigetaylorevans collections. #minialbum #scrapbooking #lisafonseca #copticbook
Since I saw Paige's first coptic book a few years ago, I wanted to make one. I even asked my dad to cut me tons of wood pieces for the cover and the back, but they're still in a box, untouched... ;) Hahaaa... Too much to do, not enough hours in a day...
So when I got the Boxed Cards from the Confetti Wishes collection, I asked myself what I could create with it, except use them as normal cards.

That's when the idea came, to create a mini album in a coptic book style.

So I took one card of each style, 10 in total, for the inside pages. For the cover and the back, I used some thick cardboard and used patterned papers that I wrapped around the pieces.

Then I attached everything together, watching Paige's video tutorial step by step. HERE's the link to her Etsy shop, where you can buy the class to make a coptic book.
What's really cool when you make a coptic book, is that you can use all sorts of cute embellishments to add to the side of the book. I added mini tassels, heart charms and sequins.

In the inside of the mini album, I stitched the cards together on the side and bottom, to create a pocket at the top. I created mini envelopes with my envelope maker, cutting off, the flaps to close them. Then I decorated each of the envelopes. I also attached an eyelet and a piece of ribbon, so that you can easily pull out the envelopes when they are inserted into the pockets.

I inserted one envelope in every second pocket from the mini album.

I didn't decorate the inside too much because I don't have pictures yet too go into my mini album and I plan to decorate the rest when I add my photos. I only used this cutfile by Paige (288398), backed it with vellum and adhered it to one of the pages.
I also decorated the first page of the album by adhering flowers from the Horizon ephemera pack and a chipboard sticker, using foam squares to add dimension.

For the cover, I used a flower cutfile by Paige (288406). I cut out the different layers out of patterned papers from the Horizon collection, creating a rainbow look. On the last layer of the flower, I added a rolled flower (241018) and then a pearl in the center of that one. I think it looks so cool and fun with all the layers and colors.
