Sizzix 'Old School' Die Challenge - Mini Album Cover and Pages

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 4:20 AM

Here is the second post in our occasional series, a challenge to try and use my overflowing collection of 'original' Original Sizzix dies. This one, uses the Mini Album Cover and Pages, to make some sweet little notebooks, ideal for making for fundraising or charity stalls. I put a pile of these little books with some other handmade items in a basket, when I was having my last craft clearout/garage sale and they all sold, much to my surprise. Anyway, here is the project list:

Equipment and Materials

  • Sizzix originals die Album Cover and Pages (Mini)
  • Stampin Up 'Seeing Spots'
  • Kaisercraft Stamp Set 'Friends'
  • Fiskars Scallop Circle Punch
  • A circle punch if you have one but you can cut by hand like I have
  • Pink and lilac card
  • Versa Color Amethyst and Lilac
  • Pink and lilac ribbons
  • Pink and lilac stick on gems
  • Foam pads, glue
  • White paper for note pages

This is the die that I'm using today

I've cut out some covers from the pink and lilac card and stamped over them with the Seeing Spots stamp set from Stampin Up.

Next, I've punched some scalloped circles with my trusty Fiskars punch.

I wanted a message or a design in the middle of my scalloped circles, so I've gone for one of the flower images on this lovely setcalled 'Friends' from Kaisercraft.

I've just assembled my flowers using foam pads and put a simple gem in the middle. The books are tied together with some co-ordinating organza ribbon. There you go, a very simple little 'make' for your next craft fair.

I hope you have enjoyed this project, please leave us any comments or questions below and post any links to projects you have made, if you are joining in with this challenge.

I'd love to build up an archive of projects, so if you have this die in your collection gathering dust, then why not join in! You can read more about the challenge I have set myself to use all my dies here
