A special little Christmas gift from Jolly Nation

It was our Wedding Anniversary today, 12 years, can't believe how fast time is flying, hardly seems a couple of years since we tied the knot! We went out for a lovely dinner last night. Tomorrow is my youngest Son's birthday so we will have an early start so he can open his presents before I go to work.

I was in the mood for something Christmassy today but wanted to make a bit more than a card. I used my Jolly Nation Christmas decoupage pack to make this cute little Christmas scrapbook album.

The Fairy decoupage is so cute and quick to put together as all the decoupage sheets in the pack are die cut.
I cut the album with Nestabilities fand set an eyelet in the cover to hold the binding ring to which I tied some lovely red organza ribbon.
I layered a glitter circle on the cover before adding the decoupage and some gems to add a bit of Christmas sparkle.
To make the gift even more special, I decided to make a box with my Crafter's Companion scoring board.
I added a scalloped square of backing paper to the bottom of the box cut with Nestabilities.

This was a really fun little project and makes a fab and fun gift for Christmas. IIt also shows how versatile the Jolly Nation decoupage sheets are and that they are great for decorating all kinds of Projects.

I was lucky enough to get a Bind-it-all as an Anniversary present, I hope to be making some more little notebooks and albums soon so watch this space!
