    Pink Alice; Mini Florals, Cookies & Hardware PLUS Fairy Garden Sale!

    Filed under Alice in Wonderland, Art Projects, Fairy Garden, Miniatures, Shannon Cooper, The Mad Hatter's Tea Party Kit

    Such a cute little accordion book by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper! I’ll start by reviewing that artwork (actually, letting Shannon introduce her project), then move on to what’s new this week — some of which inspired a HUGE fairy garden sale!

    I recently received my April The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Kit along with an amazing set of Ticket Journal Alice Covers from Alpha Stamps! YAY, ALICE! Originally, I had planned on making something with the super cute matchbox facade and matchbox niche (I love those things) but kept coming back to the ticket journal covers. I added a Matchbox Ticket Journal in between the covers and made a mini book. Mini books are nice, too.

    I dabbed pink, blue, white, and gold paint onto the Ticket Journal Covers, and when they were dry, stamped them on the fronts and backs with various stamps.

    Assembling the book is easy peasy.

    Choose the order of the characters for your book. The White Rabbit is my Front Cover, Red Queen is the Center, and The Mad Hatter is the Back Cover. Cut the matchbox ticket journal so you have two sections of four pages. Attach one end to the back of the Front Cover and the other end to the front of the Center.

    (See the wide photo below, with the book unfolded, to see how the queen is in the middle of 2 parts of the accordion book pages.)

    Use the leftover segment of the matchbox ticket journal as a template to cover the pages. This entire project was begun because I wanted to use the glorious Alice’s Tea Party 6×6 Paper, so I traced around my template onto the Alice paper, cut the pages out, and used a paper hole punch to cut out the corner notches.

    After that, all you need to do is decorate! Add a few pockets, cut out the tags from the Alice paper if you wish… (see the little tickets below, when out of their pocket).

    Use stickers, chipboard cutouts like the ones found on the Tiny Chipboard Alice Props Set, then glue a length of ribbon to the front cover, add an image, flowers, charms, whatever you want, and poof! You have a mini album.

    Poof!” Well, if you’re as talanted as Shannon, it’s easy as “poof!”

    Visit Shannon’s Blog and you’ll find more instructions and photos for constructing the Wonderland Mini Album. Plus here’s Shannon’s Supply List!
