Reunion Crafts

Well, it's that time of year again and I have the pleasure of doing some crafts with the kids at our family reunion! I absolutely LOVE it!! I thought it would be fun to create a little lanyard album for them to remember the fun times we had together!   We started with a piece of cardstock cut to 11.25"x3.25".  I pre-scored them, starting at the left, at each 2.25" mark, (2.25", 4.5", 6.75" and 9").

After scoring, I then did an accordion fold.

I used my Creative Memories tag punch to make tags to go on the front of the album saying "OFFICIAL MEMBER of the BARGER FAMILY". 

 I brought all kinds of goodies from my stash for the kids to use like stickers, gems, gel pens etc.!  They had so much fun decorating them! Here are some pics of the finished products!

Needless to say, the sticker gems were a hit! :-)

To see another version of this album, check out my gallery on Club Ruby Designers . It's called a summer lanyard album.  

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wow, that looks like so much fun. The children just love when they can create and make things. It always amazes me they are so opinionated in what they make and design. They know exactly what they what and with a little direction they will amze you with what they make.
