How to : Make Hanging Open MDF Album

Hello beautiful crafters !!

Its me Isha here today with my post to show you How to make Hanging Open  MDF album . When i received this Kaisercraft Album from the first thing that came to my mind was that what I am going to do with this album .

I have spent many days thinking what can be done, and finally decided to give it a try ( this is my second mdf project and still struggling :P)

This is how the album comes in pieces and assembly is required .

First thing that i did was painted the entire thing with black acrylic paint and you don't need to be an artist for this, don't forget to paint the sides of the album because that's the part which is most visible .

Please avoid the mess on my table . And this is how it looks like when you paint the album pieces .

Now comes the next step - cover the pieces with the pattern paper !! The pattern paper I have used from kit  measures 6x6 and my album measures approx 8" wide , so i decided to cover the pieces with plain cardstock to add extra layer and distressed the edges with Vintage photo.
After this I have added the pattern paper over this and the paper collection that I have used is Be - Amazing from MME , Loved these papers they are just awesome.

Voila ! All the pieces are covered with the gorgeous pattern and ready to embellish .

P.S- First embellish the pieces and then assemble .

I have used loads of stamps and embellishments on this album and have tied the pieces with yellow organza ribbon . Thickers that I have used added a dimension to my project and I absolutely loved it .
Added two photo mats and one piece is left over for journaling .

A closer shot so that you can see the details ...

I have used Tombow mono Liquid glue , you can also use Glossy accents .

TIP - It would be a great idea if you use  Mod Podge to cover the pieces before and after assembly .Mod podge will give a protective coating to your project and it will your project more sturdy and will give extra life to your project . It will also save your work from dust and will give some matte finish to your work .
Our store has a wide range of Mod Podge.
