Mini layout pages:
*4 sheets of cardboard/chipboard at 13cmx13cm
*10 sheets 6x6 paper cut down to 13x13cm - keep the off cuts!

* Polaroid style photo mats: photos are 7.4 x 7.4 cm and the white card to matt them on is 9.6cm x 8.1cm.
*You will need 8 photos and 8 photo mats
*Adhesives, border punches, trim, score board, duct tape and tools as usual
*Binding rings or ribbon (Binding rings do work the best)

*Hole punch
For the stand:
*1 x Sheet of chipboard 30cm long and 15cm high
