Playing With Zippers

Maya Road | Maya Road

Hi Roadies! 

If you saw the  Maya Road CHA sneaks last week,  you will have already seen this chipboard Play album.  I don't make that many albums, but this one was really fun to use and went together easily.  The word "play" prompted me in the direction the album would go - I knew wanted it to be bright, fun and playful!!!

 ...and what could be more playful than these new Zipper Trims!

Since the album comes with the word "play" on the back and front pages.  I decided to cut out the "P" and "A" from the back page, cover them with paper  and embellish them before adhering them to the cover.  Applying the trim around the edges of the letters was easy.  I just cut slits along the length of the zipper to help it curve around the edges, then stitched it into place.

For the letter "L" I adhered the closed Zipper Trim on top of the letter, then used a sharp knife to trim away the excess material.

To keep the zipper theme going, I used a little of the trim on each page.

Here are a few of the pages inside.

See you soon,
