With August here, we all know that those “Back to School” days are just around the corner. I wanted to make a school themed album that I could put my grandson’s pictures in and this is what I came up with. I just love the Graphic 45 ABC Primer from last year so I thought this would fit perfectly with my chalkboard slate design.
Inside is the paper bag album with many places for photos and journaling.
I really enjoyed making the beads for the abacus out of paper. For those of you who are unfamiliar with an abacus….it’s a counting frame that was used to teach arithmetic and counting. The beads are very simple to make and I thought it complimented the vintage look of this project very nicely.
I have a few more details to add to the actual album and then I will post some more pictures for you. I am also putting together a tutorial for sale for this project. More information on that shortly also 🙂
Happy crafting everyone!
