Jones - Design Team - Always & Forever

So today I've got my hands on the gorgeous Always & Forver - Kaisercraft paper collection thanks to the wonderful team @ Jones Crafts

At the moment I'm going through a bit of a cutting stage... Using the most odd templates lol, today
I'm using a small plate! 

So to start with find the middle of your page with a ruler and make a mark - 
Take your template and draw round half of it, from both sides... 
Then join the top & bottom of the circles using a ruler, and now cut along the lines to remove the two odd shaped triangles... 

Now fold the half moons back to reveal a window... I used a little lacĂ© to decorate the edges of my fold backs, just attached with a glue gun. 

I've used a sheet of always & forever - love for my backing of the window (reverse of the sheet) and all of my text emblellishments come from the front of this sheet. 

Besides this I've added a few pearls and some corners to set my page off... The corners I've created are super easy! (Especially if you like teabag folding!) 

Step one - cut 4 squares - mine are 2-1/2" 
Fold diagonally in both directions - 
Then open out and corner punch (this is much easier then corner punching than trying to line up to fold diagonally).

Next up, fold them in half posting two sides in towards the middle....

Open out and cut in half...

Now you have two corners to glue on, folding the sides around the back of the page, so it looks like a fancy photo corner of sorts...

And that's it... A nice simple little page, once again I would like to thank the team at Jones Crafts for giving me the chance to play with this brand new collection!

All of the papers from this collection are now in stock @ Craftmania - Great Yarmouth (Norfolk) & Craftmania Lowestoft (Suffolk)
