Hey everybody! Leslie here, sharing a fun mini album for that coffee lover in your life! This album was created with our Blank Wood Card and Mini Shaker Coffee Mug and it has lots of room for photos and journaling! This shaker is the coolest - it has three compartments for shaker bits!
I started by painting both sides of the Blank Wood Card panels with Java chalk paint and lightly sanded the panels to expose the edges and corners for a little bit of a distressed look. I colored the top chipboard form of the Mini Shaker Coffee Mug along with the edges of the remaining forms and back with alcohol markers. I adhered pieces of three different patterns of Coffee Background ATCs from my stash to the chipboard back so they're visible through the apertures. Then, working up from the bottom, I adhered the next two chipboard forms. I added shaker blends to the three compartments, removed the protective film from the bottom side of the acrylic divider, and adhered it. I removed the protective film from the top side of the acrylic divider, adhered the top chipboard form, and adhered the shaker to the top of the mini album. I added two coffee bean brads (prongs removed) with distress collage medium to complete the front of the album.
I cut four pages for the inside and punched holes in the tops. I created hole reinforcements using two circle punches, colored them with an alcohol marker, and adhered them to both sides of each page. Using a variety of cardstock, ATCs and other ephemera, dies, clear stickers, and brads, I decorated each page. The assembly is always the most fun to me! ;)
And here's a shot of the back after I added the rings and ribbon.
