Baby Mini Book with the Happy Jig

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here today sharing with you a baby mini album embellished with the new Happy Jig

I love this new tool! It is so innovative and something you haven’t since in the industry so far! Plus, it is very easy to use and you can make shapes to embellish mini albums, layouts, cards or any craft project.

To make the mini album, start by cutting 2 paper strips of 4 ¼ inch height. I used my Mini Score Board to score my paper every 3 ¼ inch.

I also wanted to include a confetti shaker on my mini album so I filled a small photo sleeve with stars and sequins and I closed it with my Fuse Ruler and the new USB Heat Tool with the Fuse tip.

To create the shaker I used my Clear Cut Punch to cut two hearts on the edges of the strips, one on the left and one on the right.

I glue the two ends together with double sided tape and put the confetti shaker inside.

I used my Sticky Piercer to make holes all over my heart and the paper’s edge, the key is to make the same amount of hearts on one shape and on the other one!

Using your twine from the Happy Jig join the outer and the inner holes together.

Now for the Happy Jig embellishments. This tools comes with a manual with lots of shapes and you can also see other designs on the We R Happy Jig dedicated Instagram account (@werhappyjig). But I assure you it is very easy to make your own shapes! I created this wire frame in no time!

To make my journaling lines I used my Magnetic Mat! It is perfect because the ruler holds the project in place and you have perfect lines all the time!

I also did a “boy” shape for my title. The dimension it adds is amazing! To hold your shape in place you can use a strong liquid adhesive or a few stitches.

Here are the “boy” coordinates:

Start: L9

Small Pegs: K11. N12. N16, K21. J24, P25

You can also use your wires to contour a paper shape or to embellish free hand like I did here on the sea waves.

See how cute that little frame looks? It is perfect for a 2 inch photo. Did you notice all the 1 inch squares on the next page? I used my Square Punch Board and did it in no time!

I also used my Happy Jig to make a letter “L” for Lorenzo, you can find the instructions for all the letters on the Happy Jig Instagram feed. The letters are great to create personalized gift tags!

And here you can see my shaker pocket. The twine thread gives it a great look and poking the holes with the Sticky Piercer was a breeze!

How would you use your Happy Jig? What words or shapes would you like to see? I am definitely going to work on some Spanish or Italian words for my projects!
