TIPS & TECHNIQUES: Project Life Tip on How to Keep Your Photos From Sliding




Project Life Tip on How to Keep Your Photos From Sliding

1 – DON’T TURN YOUR ALBUM UPSIDE DOWN!
It might sound simple, but being careful when handling your albums can be an easy fix! What might not be as easy is taming the hands of little ones who may get a hold of your album.

2 – WASHI TAPE
Use washi tape to place over the edge of your pocket. This will seal up the edge so nothing slips out. It’s also cute and it can easily be removed without leaving any residue, so if you don’t love the look, you can try something else. We have loads of washi tapes, some happens to be on sale right now, plus we have an adorable washi tape booklet available in our shop!

3 – PAPER CLIPS
There are so many cute paper clips available right now. They come in all different shapes and sizes that can add a fun element to your album. The good news is you can also use a plain old silver or gold paper clip!

4 – CHIPBOARD or WOOD VENEER
Adding a chipboard or wood veneer element to your card or photo can help tighten up the space within your pocket. This helps to keep things more snugly in place. Many of Project Life Value Kits also come with chipboard or wood veneer shapes!

5 – TINY ATTACHER or MINI STAPLE
The Tiny Attacher can be found in our  tore and can be used to seal up the pocket pages with an added fun element. You can also use a standard stapler to produce similar results.

6 – CLEAR LABELS
Clear round labels or full sheet labels that can be used similarly to the washi tape, however they will blend into your pocket pages and make less of a statement.

7 – FOAM DOTS
Sticking foam dots between two photos / cards can help to add thickness which makes the pocket nice and snug. The best part about using these is that you can’t really see the added element of the foam dots that helps keep your page simple and clean!

8 – GLUE DOTS or SCOR TAPE
Adding any type of clear tape or glue dots to the front side of a card or photo will keep them stuck in place, and you won’t even be able to see the adhesive.

9 – SOLUTIONS FOR PHOTOS THAT ARE NOT TRUE 4’x6’
If you print your own photos with a Selphy Printer, many people will leave the tabs on the edges of the photos and just trim them to leave a little bit of the tab on. Or, if you prefer to snap off the tabs after printing (or your prints come from your printer just smaller than 4×6), just adhere your photo to the top of a plain 4×6 card.

10 – FUSE TOOL
Don’t be nervous to use the Fuse Tool – it’s a great tool for many things including sealing pockets! Just run the hot tool (with the perforated tip) along the open edge of the pocket (making sure there is room above the cards and photos) to create a seal that will keep your cards in place.
