January has to be "the birthdays month" for me! I have seven
freakin' birthdays on the 15th & 16th only! and still to come, more than 9 birthdays. Oh thank goodness we have the gracious Facebook to remind us about each and every birthday. x]
Okie, so I've just finished a gift for my bestie who turned 17 yesterday.
I made her a mini scrapbook/album with some of our favorite pictures together.
I used a small cardboard box for the cover, and everything else came into shape pretty easily. :)
Here are a few of my favorite pages:
Cover. This is actually a window with transparent plastic, so this photo is on the inside.
Oh yeah, and I'm the tall one on the right. :P (I don't know why my right eye looks all "puffy" though. It doesn't look like that in the album. lol)
You can see the window more clearly now. :) I hot glued a mini candle for some extra fun. :D
The pages are folded accordion style and glued from both sides to the inside of the cover.
These two pages are my favorite. :D (Oh, by the way, don't mind the writing on the left page, it's an inside joke . ;)
Oooh how I love pockets! :D This one here is filled with sequins and a "Happy B-day" note is buried in there, so when you shake you can read it.
Oh hello aqua sequin! ^^ Love the color.
I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow and see her reaction. Some of those photos were so long ago! :D
Oh wait, one more thing: (drumroll)
A miniature polymer clay clay cake! ^^
I've been trying and trying and again, failing to make the basic layered cake but I couldn't.
But just then, I sat down the other day and decided to give it another go, and this happened!
I even managed to make the whipped cream on the top without translucent clay! (I used a teeny bit of white clay and a very small amount of glycerine)
I still can't believe it turned out so neat even after cutting the slice! (It was this part that I always screwed up)
I hope you enjoyed today's post.
How many birthdays do you have on January?
