8"x8" Min Albums
Katie's 8th Birthday

By Paulette Jarvey

Tip: For this 8”x8” page, we chose to enlarge one great photograph of Katie, rather than squeezing in multiple photos. Of course, by matting the photo, we made sure it would stand out from the patterned paper.

Materials Needed

8”x8” Birthday Papers for papers and cut-out embellishments

black pen
silver star brads
Foam Mounting Tape

Cut a 5 3/4” x 7 7/8” piece of star paper and glue centered even, with the right side of the yellow sponged paper. Mat your photo on lime, then purple papers leaving a 1/8” border on each. Glue the photo to the star paper, about 3/8” from the right side of the page.

2. Cut out the “Happy birthday to you!” border, glue it to the purple ribbon border and cut out Glue as a border between the star paper and the yellow paper.
3. Cut out the paper art and apply foam tape to the backs of all, except for the tags. Add star brads to the top of the tags. Arrange the embellishments along the left side of the page on the yellow paper, overlapping each other. Journal on lime paper with the black pen, then trim and mat on purple. Add to the lower left corner with a star brad. Personalize the tags with name and date as desired.
4. Add the remaining tag to the lower right corner of the photo. Cut out the appropriate number and mat on lime paper. Attach with foam tape, overlapping the tag.
