Another Enrichment Club Project


I hurried home from work to catch the last of the daylight to photograph our other project that the girls made on Thursday. I had them all bring a picture of themselves. I used a picture of my son Mark from a few years ago on my sample. Well, more than a few, considering he is 17 now. ;)

We used the SU hostess set, Time Well Spent. The page measures 6" by 6".The flowers were colored with Prisma pencils and the large one was cut out. The smaller one was punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and matted with a Rose Red circle punched with the 1 3/8" punch.

We made the holders from jumbo 2" binder clips. I got mine at Staples. We covered these with card stock cut to 3 1/4" by 2". I scored these at 1 1/8" and 2 3/8". If you use designer paper to cover the clip, you probably won't need to score, but the card stock is rather thick and it looks better if you score it. I used Not quite Navy to cover the clip, and as the larger background on the page. I stamped it in black with two of the stamps from Time Well Spent.

Be sure to use a bit of ribbon if you make one of these clips. Tie the ribbon up high, tightly, and double knot it. Then push it down towards the clip. This helps keep the clip prongs tight enough to hold the scrap page.
I hope you like this project. I think the girls' projects turned out well and I am sure that their parents will enjoy displaying them on their desks at work. Thanks for visiting!
