Instructions:
1. Tear and crinkle pieces of tissue paper and adhere to front and back of album with Liquid Laminate, following bottle directions. Fold paper over edges to inside front and back cover.(Raw edges will later be covered with holiday paper.) Let dry.
2. Paint over tissue paper with gold acrylic paint. Let dry and apply a second coat.
3. Measure a piece of holiday paper smaller than the front of the album. Tear the edges to give a handcrafted, uneven look. Apply paper to album front with Zip-Dry. Cut a piece of paper to inside cover dimensions and apply to front and back inside covers with Zip-Dry.  Prop open to dry.
4. Cut a piece of cardstock smaller than front cover and cut edges into wavy pattern. Run through paper crimper and apply to front with Zip-Dry.
5. Cut out reindeer pieces and trace onto cardstock. Run the body and tummy pieces through the crimper. Glue all pieces to the body as seen in sample photo. Make squiggle lines and dots around antler and star edges. Draw a line and dots on the muzzle and a swirl inside ears.
6. Cut two 2” lengths and another 2 ½” lengths of just cord. Tie a knot on one end of each piece. String wood beads onto each cord. Turn reindeer over and glue the shorter pieces onto the body back for arms and the longer pieces for legs. Let dry.
7. Make a bow from the red metallic cord and glue bow, nose and wiggle eyes to the face area with Zip-Dry and glue the reindeer onto the red cardstock.
8. Either use the computer to generate the words FAMILY CHRISTMAS MEMORIES or hand print on cardstock as seen in the photo, or create your own holiday message and glue the words to green paper ribbon.
