Creating Birthday-themed Mini Album Pages
Designer: Paris Dukes

Looking for a compact way to display all of those birthday photos? Paris 8x8 birthday pages show how you can create bright, cheerful birthday layouts in no time! The best part? Birthday pages are not just for kids! In Merry Birthday Paris, Paris focused on her own Capricorn zodiac sign, accenting it with a deep purple and blue color scheme, then brightened things up for Natalies 10th Birthday Party! Paris used the 8x8 birthday papers and just a few brads and ribbon strips for embellishing on these layouts. These pages are great on their own, or even betterdisplayed all together in an 8x8 birthday album!


8x8 albums are the perfect way to document a whole birthday party, Paris says. The patterned papers and coordinating cut-outs come in a rainbow of bright colors, and the little tags are perfectly sized for journalingthey dont overwhelm these smaller pages. The best part is that the 8x8s come in coordinating papers, cardstock and albums, making your layouts so easy! Just a couple of tools and embellishments and youre ready to scrap!

Instructions:

  1. Use the purple zodiac paper for the background. Cut a tapered strip of blue mosaic paper for the border, measuring 1 3/4 at the top and 1 1/2 at the bottom, and ink the edges with black. Glue vertically 1/4 in from the right edge of the page.
  2. Mat the photo on purple textured paper, leaving a 1/2 border on the left side and a 1/8 border on the other three sides. Ink the edges with black. Journal onto the small tag cut-outs and ink the edges with black. Attach the tags to the upper left corner of the photo as shown, and add one star brad to each.
  3. Ink the edges of the large zodiac tag. Cut a 2 piece of purple grosgrain ribbon and fold it in half, then attach it to the tag with a star brad. Secure the tag in the lower right corner of the page as shown.
  4. Cut a 10 piece of purple grosgrain ribbon and place it 1 1/2 up from the bottom of the page. Wrap the ends of the ribbon around the edges of the paper and glue on the back to secure. Cut three 2 pieces of grosgrain ribbonone each of navy, purple and burgundy. Fold each piece of ribbon in half and attach to the purple ribbon strip in the bottom left corner of the page.
