Hello lovely people! Its Lydia here again meeting you with yet another fun mini project.
HELLO SUNSHINE is a mini hoop album made with the BOHO SUNSHINE collection from Simple Stories, that’s super easy to make to document your summer memories! Let’s get to know how to make it,
Firstly, you’ll need a hoop measuring about 3 inch in diameter to which we’ll apply two coats of pastel yellow chalk paint.
Cover the hoop from the bottom using the paper of your choice. Now, you’ll have to select pattern papers for your pages and cut circles that fit into the hoop. You can add anywhere between 6-8 pages. For the cover we’ll have to double the page so it’s stronger and make it 0.3cm bigger than the rest of the pages. You can start putting the album together from here, but I went ahead and chose to add machine stitching to the page borders, backing page and the cover page.
Next up, you’ll have to keep all the pages lined up and start stitching them together leaving a small gap in-between so we can fold.
Stick the last page to the base of the album and fold the pages in accordion manner. Glue the cover page to the topmost page and now you have the base ready to be embellished.
Embellish the pages and the cover and you’ll have your very own mini hoop album in no time! You can add in a piece of ribbon to hold the album together.
There’s a full 3-part tutorial on my Instagram for this album, make sure to glance at them while making your own!
