Frugal Friday – Playing Card Mini Album

I don’t know about your house, but at my house it seems that no matter how hard I try to keep games together, they still end up scattered to the four winds.  So when this happens I take the orphaned pieces to my studio and turn them into works d’art.

This piece d’art is a deck of mismatched and worn out playing cards turned mini album.  I sewed onto a few cards using my sewing machine.  I adhered photo mats and journaling spots to some and just drew journaling lines on others.  I distressed the edges of the cards with ink and splattered white paint on some of the finished cards.

Then I used the back cover of paper stacks, cut to the size of the cards, as covers for my mini album.  (You can also use cereal boxes).  I painted, distressed and splattered them as well.  I punched holes for my binding, and used jute to bind my book.  Now I have a fun mini album made from “trash”.

If you have any questions please leave them in the comments below.
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon and stay awhile.
Happy Scrapping.

Let’s scrapbook together, it’s cheaper than therapy.
