    Some people have requested specific instructions on how to do the coffee filter albums: So here it is!



    Coffee Filter Album Supply List

    6 Cone coffee filters (not the ruffled ones) mine are size #2

    Several sheets of patterned paper (enough to cover the front and back of each filter + 6 tags ) I probably used 12 6x6 sheets—but this will vary depending on the size of your filters and how well you use your scraps.

    3 Large brads (2 same color -1 can be a different color)

    Corner rounder (you can use scissors if you don ‘t have one)

    1 Small piece of chipboard/cardboard about 2”x2 1/2”

    Distressing ink/chalk

    Cropodile or hole puncher/eyelet setter

    2 Large flowers-3 med-3 small-1 slightly larger than the med size (see photo these will be centers for eachother)

    1 Ribbon the length of the filter tip to tip-1 ribbon 4” long- 5 small pieces of ribbon/fiber for tags

    1 Shaped clip or paper clip

    2 Buttons

    1 Mini brad

    5 Eyeltes

    STEP1: Get your 6 cone coffee filters and use your distressing ink and distress the edges (if you like this look) all the way around because they will show.

    Line the coffee filters up so they are going the same direction. With them lined up punch 2 holes in the bottom (the small end) of of the filters.

    STEP2: Take your chipboard and cut a piece 2 1/4 inches by 2 inches fold it over 1 inch from the end and then again 1 ¼ inches from the end. Trace the piece of chipboard and cut a piece of paper to cover it and adhere the paper to the chipboard and crease the folds.

    Now wrap the chipboard around the end of the filters where the holes are and punch corresponding holes in the chipboard. (make sure your chipboard doesn’t overlap the front filter by more than a half an inch otherwise the book won’t open easily) The back of the chipboard binding will overlap the back filter more than it does in the front (this is for stability and will keep the book from being floppy when you hold it by the spine.) Secure the binding with 2 large brads.

    STEP3: Now take a piece of your patterned paper and trace the coffee filter onto the back of the paper. Cut it out about 1/8 of an inch inside the line you drew (this will allow for some of the coffee filter to show) You can use a corner rounder to get a good round corner on one side. Now lay your paper on top of the bound filters and cut off the bottom of the paper just above where the chipboard binding stops (no paper will go under the binding (this allows for the pages to turn otherwise they would be too stiff and your book wouldn’t open easily and would crease the paper)

    Now use this as a template to cut 5 more out of different patterns of paper (I used a different pattern for each page of mine, but how many you use is up to you)

    For the facing pages (the coffee filters are slightly asymmetrical) so flip your template over and use the reverse to trace around for the opposite pages and the back. (6 total)

    Now adhere the 12 pieces to your pages(you can distress them with your ink if you like)---the back cover is the exception –the paper will go slightly under the binding (again for stability so it won’t be floppy) Make sure no pages go down in the crease—you should see a little bit of the filter on all sides of the paper. If the paper goes into the crease (the fold of the book) your pages will not turn freely.

    STEP4: Take your large flower and layer a medium size flower in the center and secure it with a coordinating large brad to the coffee filter. Layer a medium and a small flower and secure them to the front cover with an eyelet and last layer 3 flowers and secure them with an eyelet to the front cover.

    STEP5: Trim a piece of coordinating paper about half the size of your coffee filter and tear it along the top. Distress it with your ink. Adhere it to the inside left page by the sides and the bottom only to create a pocket for a photo or journaling.

    Next cut another coordinating piece in a long strip the length of your filter. Distress it and adhere it to the page. Attach a piece of ribbon at the ends only to the middle of the strip of paper and attach a decorative clip to hold a photo

    STEP6: Cut another strip the length of your filter, distress it, and adhere it to the page. Take another large flower and cut it in half. Adhere half the flower to the top right side of the strip using a button as the center. (save the other half we will use it later)

    STEP7: Cut 1 short strip the width of the filter. Adhere it to the front of the 4th filter. Add fiber or ribbon along the bottom of it.
