This project combines so many of my loves- paper crafting, mixed media, and mini scrapbook albums. This wooden circle scrapbook pocket album uses pre-cut wooden circles as the base for a creative take on a traditional album. The best part? It uses up lots of your little scrap papers and bits!
- 3 inch Wooden Circles
- Scrapbook Paper
- Circle or Scallop Circle Craft Punch (my faves for this are 1 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch circle but you can also use a cutting machine if you have one)
- 32mm Key Ring
- Permanent Tape Runner
- Bits and Bobs (I used some jewelry charms, wooden pieces, embroidery floss, etc.)
Step 2. Use the tape runner to adhere the circles to the wooden cut outs. I covered both sides with paper circles. Step 3. With the tape runner, add photos and embellishments to the circles. This is where the smaller circle punches come in handy – you can create perfect circle photos. Step 4. Use the Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole at the top of each circle. I used the larger hole setting.Step 5. After you’ve decorated five or six wooden pieces, add them to a large keyring. For this pocket album, I used photos or phrases from the month of March. It’s a quick way to capture a month.
But, you could also decorate both sides of six pieces and that would be perfect to represent each month of the year. Step 6: If you want, add some bits and bobs to the keyring for extra texture. I added a charm, a wooden shape, and a tassel. These quick and easy pocket albums make very nice, thoughtful gifts!
