Darling Daschunds Friday Project

Morning guys !!  Diane here with this weeks fabby do friday project for you,  a mini album in a tin using "Darling Daschunds"

You better grab a cuppa and a seat as there are loads of photo's !!

You will need:
silver tin box 3 3/8"x 3 3/8"
white card
2 sheets of patterned paper
26" gingham ribbon
blue ink pad

 1. Cut 2 strips of white card  3 1/4" x  9 3/4" and score at 3 1/4 and 6 1/2. Cut one more strip at 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" and score at 3 1/4"  

2. On the 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" stamp the small daschunds on left hand square at bottom. On one of the 3 1/4" x 9 3/4" stamp daschunds at bottom of two left hand squares . On second 3 1/4" x 9 3/4" stamp largs daschund with flowers in fisrt left hand square and small daschunds in second left hand square. 

3.Fold each strip and round corners.

4. Colour in all images using promarkers and then make a light cloud effect background. This is very easy, I use a cloud shape cut from card and then pick up a bit of ink on a sponge from a blue ink pad and lighty dab round my cloud shape moving it as I go across my background.

5. Turn all three pieces over and cover back of each square as shown in photo with pattern paper.

6. Concertina fold all three strips and then glue all three strips together to form one long concertina.
7. Cover tin front and inside lid with patterened paper.
8. Stamp a 3 1/4" x 1" strip of white card with small daschunds and colour in and glue to front of tin.

9. Attach ribbon to inside bottom of tin.

10. Then glue concerina strip on top of ribbon.

11. Now have fun adding your photo's !!

 Here are my two fur babies Taz and Hugo !!
