This Alice in Wonderland themed layout post is actually from 2009 – BEFORE the fun stuff we have now. I’ve updated a few things throughout the post and shared links to fun downloads and ideas! Be sure to scroll down 🙂
- 2 pieces 12 x 12 cardstock for the background (red)
- 1 sheet 12 x 12 yellow cardstock
- 1 pattern paper 12 x 12 (pastel pattern paper with larger dots)
- 2 sheets coordinating pattern paper (pastel with smaller dots )
Using your tear ruler (ruler with jagged edges for tearing paper – see images at the end of this post), tear one strip of the pattern paper with larger dots to 4″ wide and the length of the paper (4×12″).
Using your straight trimmer and the remainder of the paper, cut a straight edge 4″ behind the torn edge to create a second border piece.
Do the same with the yellow, except you want it to be 2.75″ – you’ll need two of these.
Tear a border 1.5″ and using your straight trimmer create a second one.
Adhere the large piece down first close to the left edge of your border, but with some of the background paper showing through. Now adhere the middle piece to the middle of that piece. Do the same with the smallest piece. You should have a three tiered border like shown in the video. Do the same for the other side.
Cut your photo matte from the yellow left over. Make them 6.5X4.5″
Cut 4.25 x 6.25 from the small dotted paper
Adhere the small dotted paper to the center of the yellow paper
From the second piece of coordinating paper cut two mattes 4.5×6.5 and using your ink, run the pad gently along the edges.
Apply your stickers or images and the title.
Add your photos.
Don’t forget to journal the who, what, when, where and why!
Here is a very quick little video I uploaded when I made this layout. Please keep in mind, this was over ten years ago! Hope it inspires you!
