Watch it Wednesday: Mini Card with a Surprise!

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a video for you demonstrating making a mini card with a hidden surprise, along with a fabulous scrapbook page using mini photos.

First…the video!  When you open this 4″ x 4″ card, a gift card pops up.  (And, again, I used a non-holiday stamp - the ClearDesign Birds and Branches bird - for a holiday card.)

Now, I couldn’t do a “mini” week without talking about mini photos on scrapbook pages.  So I asked a scrapbooking pro who is the expert of using mini photos: Leslie Lightfoot.  Leslie said, “I really like being able to fit a lot of photos onto a one-page layout. I often use collages in order to get several mini photos together in a neat and tidy fashion. Mini photos on a layout are nice when accompanied by a larger ‘focal’ shot like the one I used here of myself with my children. I think that by using several photos on a page, you support the theme of your layout and better tell the story through the photographs.”

Size: photos are 1.75″ x 1.75″ except for the larger focal photo which is 3.5″ x 3.5″
Supplies:

And, of course, Leslie was kind enough to also do a matching mini card…

Thanks for visiting again today!  We will be back tomorrow with the winners of last week’s challenge.  See you then…

    Thanks for this–I used it as a jumping-off point for a gift-card holder for this Christmas. I ended up decorating all 3 surfaces: front, card holder, and inside back. Worked very well (except for the one whose slot is too narrow, darn it!).

    Thanks!
