Little Trick-Or-Treat Brag Book









My daughter's Young Women's class invited me to come and teach them a scrapbook class in October. They wanted something simple and fun, something that was Halloween or Fall themed. Well, I am BIG into shape brag book albums lately and pulled out one of my very favorite Cricut Cartridges to make this simple brag book. My daughter LOVED the way it came out!
I had to keep it really simple because we are only going to have about 75 minutes to get the whole thing put together. It is technically only 4 pages put together to make 8 pages front and back. I pulled bright card stock from my stash so I wouldn't have to buy paper to do 20+ albums! YIKES, huh? It is 8 inches tall and it holds (6) 4x4 photos. The only hardware are 4 silver eyelets and the 2 rings holding it together. There is some simple basic inking and I used color pencils for some of the shading since my chalks aren't going to be feasible to share with 20 teenage girls! I decided that the little plastic googly eyes would be lots of fun and save the girls from the frustration of trying to dot or draw out perfect little eyes. They really do make it fun, especially when they go cross eyed! A bit of ribbon adds some whimsy.
I think it turned out just adorable and is a great keepsake for fun Halloween pics with friends! This is going to be a fun class and I am really looking forward to it!
