School mini album

Somehow I keep getting the pictures out of order. Sorry!
I pretty much used stuff I already had for this one. I made the frame on the bulletin board page out of balsa wood from Michael's. The "tacks" are small brads. The border was made using scalloped scissors and my old crimper to look like the border that teachers use for classroom bulletin boards. And yes, I cut my kid's class picture-but no one got cut out. This mixed up mini was inspired by Ali Edward's "Evolution" style album.

Back to School

This little clipboard embellishment was made with my Slice machine. If you look closely, you can tell that it is a tag shape cut out of thin chipboard and then out of metallic paper. I cut the top of the metallic tag to make the clip part and glued it onto the chipboard tag.
I painted half of a toothpick to look like a pencil. I actually made this for my daughter's dollhouse after noticing that the ones in the store were made this way.
The plan is to use it in my back to school mini album, but this would be a cute tag or embellishment for a teacher gift.
