6 x 12 Cork Album How To By: Jennifer Griggs (Lizzie)

With 6x12 pages becoming more and more popular and fun, I wanted an album that was as fun as they are!

Unfortunately, there aren't very many albums in that size on the market. What's the solution? Make your own, of course!

A 12 inch square cork tile
3 Metal Craft Rings (the kind you can open and close)
Razor Blade or VERY strong scissors
Hole Punch...Things to make it pretty!!! this is all your choice!

Instructions: Using the razor blade or scissors, cut the cork tile in half. Decide where you would like the holes to connect the album. I used a sheet of notebook paper to mark the spots. Use paints, stamps, or other embellishments to decorate the front of one half of the tile. Using the metal rings, attach the tiles as your front and back cover. As you create 6 x 12 pages, you can add them into the album. You will need to punch holes in them to fit them into the album. There are many other items that could be used instead of corkboard. Make this project your own...just remember to HAVE FUN!!!
