Basic instructions for each page: Each page is first die cut out of a cereal box so that it has a certain stiffness. Then each page is covered with papers of choice and eyelets are added to all the holes for reinforcement. Follow then the instructions for embellishing each page as directed.

Instructions for the cover:

The cover is decorated with brown and green cardstock. Afterwards, the name of the pet was die cut by covering a cereal box with white paper and then using Cuttlebug “Olivia” dies to cut out each letter. This gave the letters an extra sturdiness. The picture is matted with blue cardstock. The flower is from the Sizzix Sizzlet die “Flower Blossom”. A piece of scrapbook paper with circles was covered with a circle epoxy sticker and cut then out and placed over the flower. 3-D pads were used to adhere the flower to the cover.

Mini Album - Dog Friends
The poems and sayings chosen for this album all have to do with dogs and their relationship to man. If making an album for other pets such as cats, gerbils, bunnies, etc... , choose poems and sayings that are more appropriate to those pets.

The following pages will show and describe how the album was decorated. These can be used as inspiration and give ideas how you could decorate your own personal album.
