Tahiti Beach Homework

Hi there friends,
Today I have a couple of things to share that were homework assignments. I know right??? I'm supposed to be on vacation from homework, but a friend of mine is teaching a scrapbooking/card making class locally & since she only had a few students, I thought I'd sign up to support her. But if I'd known there'd be homework....:( ---> JK! anyhoo, here are the assignments & what I did to *hopefully* get an A+ :)

Homework #1:
We created an easel card in class. We had to take it home & decorate it.
For Bonus points, I made my own embellies :)

Homework #2:
She gave us a scrap piece of chipboard (smaller than 8 1/2x 11) and we had to make something with it. So I made a mini-album.
Here's the front:

Slide the belly band off & here's the cover:
open the double flaps & here's the innies:

And... lift that middle panel & there's another one underneath:
This was super easy to make! I just took my scrap piece of chipboard & cut it into 3 equal pieces (measuring 4" x 5 1/2" each) then I cut 1 of them in half to create the double panels. I laid them out just like you see in the pic above & added tape to secure the edges to each other. Then I covered them with this fab Tahiti Beach DP (DCWV) & folded it up! Easy peasy! The belly band holds it all in place :)

Thanks so much for peeking today! I've got loads to do today so...
Gotta Go!
