    Azza European Scrapbooking Template

    I really liked the look of the Azza European scrapbooking, so I tried researching them and found that it was very difficult to order them for North America. I decided to try to make one and it worked. I found a design that I liked online and printed it full page, which came out 8 1/2″ x 11″. I scrapbook on 12″x 12″ paper so I taped it to the under side of a glass top table, facing up. I then put a desk lamp on the floor aiming up thus creating my own light table. I then placed a 12×12 sheet of thin white paper on top of the glass, centering it over the photocopy and taped it in place. I traced the photocopied image extending the lines out with marker until they were a full 12×12 page size leaving a 1/2″ border all around the page (so it was actually 11 1/2″ square). I then taped the 12×12 tracing to a 12×12 piece of thin cardboard. I used the back of a scrapbook pad of paper. I cut out all the holes with an exacto knife and ruler or circle cutting tools. I now have a cardboard template that I can reuse as often as I want. I can flip it or turn it around to make a 2 page layout. It was a project, but I have the template forever. I have made 4 so far.
