National Craft Month: Mounted scrapbook page

Mounted scrapbook page on Smoothfoam I love my family photographs (this is my baby granddaughter!) and I like to display some where they can be seen all the time, instead of tucking all of them away in scrapbook albums.

Smoothfoam scrapbook mounting sheets are nice and lightweight for displaying 12×12 scrapbook pages.

1.  Paint the front and edges of the 12″ Smoothfoam sheet pink; allow to dry.

2.  Adhere the die cut paper to the Smoothfoam with spray adhesive. Do this outside or in a well-ventilated area.

3.  Brush an even layer of glue to cover the front of the 6″ square of Smoothfoam, then gently press your photo into place. 

4.  Glue a 14” length of ribbon across the front of the panel, about 2” from the bottom and wrap each end around to the back; secure with pins or glue.

6.  Glue the photograph panel in place on the 12″ panel and add additional embellishments as desired.

7.  Use remaining ribbon to tie into a hanger and secure to the back with pins or glue.
Tip: soda can tabs also work great for hangers; adhere to the back with pins or glue.
