Clear Scraps Accordion Shaker Album--Stars & Stripes
June 22, 2019
Hello everyone! Laura here with you today, sharing
one of Clear Scraps fun Accordion Shaker Albums!
These come in many different shapes, a window,
a present, a boat, lighthouse.....for this project,
I chose a favorite, the Mason Jar Album!
These are so much fun to make! The first page is a shaker
that has a piece of matching pre-cut acrylic and you can
add beads, or use sequins, like I did here.
Clear Scraps has some of the highest quality sequins
that are in gorgeous color blends. You can find them
in the store HERE. I used the Winter Blend.
For the front cover, I painted the album with gray
and red acrylic paint, then when dry, used
glitter glue to give it sparkle and shine.
Next step is to cover both sides of the jar "pages"
with paper. Just trace, cut out, and glue on.
Then once you have all the pages covered,
you can start to decorate each page!
I chose to use different colors of paper to cover the jar,
but you can use the same paper, paint, stain, ink, etc.
Love this about the wooden Clear Scraps items,
you can create with them any way you choose!
To decorate I used paper, journal cards, chipboard,
bling, twine, stickers. You can use any of your favorite
embellishments to make it your own.
This could be used as a mini album (you can see I left
room for pictures) or as a home decor banner, or
as a combo, it could stand on a table as home decor
with the pictures displayed.
The album is tied together with twine and ribbon, but
you can use rings too. I liked the festive look of the
red and blue twine for this one!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Stop back soon for more inspiration!
