This was one of those crafts I wasn’t quite sure where I was going with it and I made a few mistakes… but I still love it! I found photo albums on sale at Michael’s and didn’t really plan on decorating them… Until I was on a Pinterest binge and saw a few different things that lead me to this!
What you’ll need:
-Photo Alum (the one I choose was fabric)
I get 95% of my supplies from Michael’s, other times AC Moore, Walmart, Target, and Amazon (god bless prime!)
Initially, I used the sharpie to write directly on the fabric, but didn’t anticipate the ink bleeding, it wasn’t cute! I tried painting over the marker and that did turn out cute, however I wasn’t paying attention and I smeared the paint- sad face- there was officially no going back! So after all of my silliness, I used a small piece of contact paper to cover up my fails! I just used the Sharpie to write on the contact paper. I’m not very good with cutting a straight line and that’s where the ribbon saved the day! I used hot glue to secure the ribbon and trim the contact paper (to hide my uneven cutting.) I added the final details of mini pearls and sea shells with hot glue.
