A Soccer Mini Album

Sports and extra-curricular activities are a big part of a child's life.  I know I have boxes of photos for band, orchestra, dance, scouts and soccer.  Here's a quick and easy way to commemorate your child's soccer activities.

Maya Road makes these adorable coaster albums.  They are small (approx. 4" diameter) and versatile.  Six pieces of chipboard bound together with a ball chain.. The cover chipboard piece is embossed.  What I love about this soccer album is the reverse side is embossed as a basketball!  How's that for value?  Use it for either sport!

To begin, I used a black sharpie marker to color the black spaces and edges on the soccer ball.  I then painted the white spaces with acrylic paint.  Once dry, I sprayed it with Iridescent Pearl Maya Mist.

 Next, I covered the coasters with patterned paper; the coaster itself was used as a template.  I distressed the paper edges and inked with green and black pigment ink from Maya Road

 To finish, add embellishments and photos!  Wouldn't this make a great gift for your child's soccer coach?

These soccer coaster albums are available from Flamingo Scraps for the low price of $2.49.   We also have owl and house coaster albums!  Also available from Flamingo Scraps are Maya Road pigment inks.

Happy Scraps to you!
