Christmas Photo layout idea
If you're looking for a way to scrapbook some family photos, possibly those Christmas ones we all took, this is a really cute idea. My layout's not Christmasy but you can make Christmasy if you want. There's plenty of variations that can be taken from this layout depending on your pictures and papers but the most important part of the layout is the title "Family is a gift you treasure" (can also use "Family is a gift to treasure") and the wrapped "gift".
To make the gift, simply cut a rectangle out of chipboard, (I use the chipboard that comes in the page or page protector package) cut a piece of paper 1/2 in. bigger than chipboard and "wrap" the chipboard by placing chipboard on paper and wrapping paper over the edge of chipboard, then glue the edge down. Use either ribbon or thin pieces of paper for the ribbon on the gift. Then cut two thin strips of paper, 1/4 or 1/3 in., fold in half creating a loop, and glue them to the top of the gift so they make a "bow".
Products I used were:
Delight Designer Paper Pack, photo mats, flowers and ribbon
Creative Cuts letters for FAMILY
Flower template for the cutoff cutting system
Hope you enjoy this layout as much as I did!
