Fudgie Mackinac Island Scrapbook Layout

To finish up our Mackinac Island Scrapbook series we wanted to have some fun with color and other charming elements of a Mackinac Island fudge shop.  As I have mentioned before, I think it is impossible and perhaps even illegal to leave Mackinac Island without purchasing and overindulging on fudge!  I mean with all the fun flavors to choose from, who could pass it up?  Ok, let me stop thinking about eating fudge and start sharing how to make some great scrapbook pages that you can display your favorite Mackinac Island fudgie photos on!

Mackinac Island Fudge Shop Scrapbook Page


Print out your die cuts on white card stock .  Cut out the five die cuts shown on the page above.  I usually leave about 1/16″ of the white cardstock showing around the edge of each die cut giving it an extra boarder.

Print out awning template and cut out pattern pieces. Adhere A-E pattern pieces to the top of the page creating awning.  

Tie three pieces of ribbon around a 1/2″ x 12″ pink piece and adhere approximately 3/4″ up from the bottom edge.  

Ribbons and scrapbooking 

Adhere one orange 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″  piece approximately 1/2″ from the left edge and centered between the awning and bottom pink strip.  Adhere a 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ orange piece approximately 1/4″ from the right edge and lined up with the top of orange piece on the left of the page.

Have fun adding die cuts to finish page one.  I adhered the elephant, fudge samples and “Too much fudge” die cuts with dimensional tape.

Cut out the eight die cuts used in page above.

Adhere the 1/2″ x 12″ pink pieces to the top and right edge approximately 3/4″ in from the edges.  Adhere an orange 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece approximately 1/2″ from left edge and 3/4″ from bottom edge.  Adhere 4 12″ orange square approximately 1/2″ from pink strips in top right corner.

Mackinac Island Seagull Die Cut For an extra touch of whimsey…adhere some fun googly eyes to your seagull die cut.

tags in scrapbooking

Cut the top corners off the short end of the 2″ x 3 1/2″ patterned piece.  (An easy way to do this is to make small marks on the back of the paper 1/2″ in on top edge and down the sides and then make cuts on both sides from mark to mark.)

Punch a whole on the top of  tag.  Fold one of the 5″ pieces of ribbon in half and thread the ends through the hole front to back and then wrap those ends around the tag and through the loop in the back and pull gently to tighten.

Mackinac Island fudge scrapbooking tags 

Tie a piece of ribbon around the FUDGILICIOUS tag.  Adhere the tag with ribbon and die cuts to the top left corner of 2nd page.  Cut the 2″ square pattern paper piece in half corner to corner and then adhere directly over the corners of the orange mats.  Add the FUDGE stop sign die cut to decorate the bottom corner piece.  Add the optional white mats to the orange mats or just add your photos.


This completes our Mackinac Island Scrapbook Series.  

Thanks for scrapping with me, I hope to see you next month where things will be getting spooky 🙂
