Candy Corn Mini Shaker Album

Hello friends and happy Friday!  Halloween is just a few days away and I have a mini album I created to share with you today!  Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays as I love seeing the kids dress up and trick or treat!  I have teenagers now who have gave up costumes a long time ago (which makes me a little sad) but its fun to see the jack-o-lanterns out on the porches and all of the decorations!  


For my project, I used the 6x6 3 Tabbed Chipboard Album and the Candy Corn Mini Shaker Shape


I painted the outside edges of both sides of each page of my album with orange chalk paint (I prefer chalk paint because it dries quickly and I love this color!). 

I also used the same chalk paint on the top frame of my shaker as well as the inside + outside edges of the two middle frames. 


Ususally I would adhere my patterned paper to the base chipboard of the shaker. Since I wanted to use three different colors, I used my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive and lined up each space on the coordinating paper as shown.  I trimmed any excess paper using my scissors. 


I placed orange, yellow, and white sequins in the appropriate spots and then adhered my acrylic piece. I find it helpful to use clips to hold my pieces together while the adhesive dries. 


After adhering the top frame, I again used my Beacon Adhesive to affix my shaker to the front of my album. I then added smaller embellishments from the collection I used. 


Each page is covered with a background piece measuring 5.5 x 5.5 inches that I  affixed using Scor Tape.  I usually leave the inside of my front cover for journaling as you see here. 



I also like to create fun pockets for memorabilia or additional photos or journaling.  Here, I utilized some of the journaling cards from the collection and added metal clips.  



Another way to create additional space is to add a flap using a bone folder.  I  cut a longer piece of patterned paper and scored at 5.75 inches.  I cut and tore my flap edge as well as added a tag for ease of opening. 


You can see there is extra space for journaling as well as a photo.
