Switch Pate Mini
Welcome to another Tutorial Tuesday with Scrapbook Nerd. This week I’m going to show you how I made this mini album using a light switch plate cover – that’s right, a switch plate cover from the hardware store. What I love about using the switch plate covers for the cover of the mini album is that it gives the album a shadow box feel.

-2 binder rings
Cover the front of the switch plate cover with adhesive. I used my ATG but you could use mod podge as well. Once it is covered with adhesive, lay your chosen patterned paper on top. Sand the paper off the edges using your sanding block for a clean edge. Sand off the paper from the inside openings of the switch plate.
Adhere a piece of double sided patterned paper to the back of the switch plate cover. Pay attention to what side of the paper you want showing through the “windows” on the front of the cover.
Once the paper is adhered, poke the two outer screw holes through. These will be the holes for the binder rings.
For the pages of my mini, I cut apart the 4×6 cards from the cut apart sheet. Punch holes to match the holes of the cover.
Attach all the pages and the cover using the binder rings.
Add pictures and embellish as desired. I used the windows on the front cover for my “Dad” title.
Here’s my finished project:
