Sweet Watermelon Scrapbook Accents

Sweet Summery Scrapbook Layout

Seasonal fruits and veggies make for good summertime eats. If someone in your family is particularly passionate about a certain food, photograph him or her enjoying this favorite fare, and use those images to tell a sweet story in your scrapbook. You can even create "bite-sized" pieces of food using the crafts you have around the house.

April Massad made mini melons using scraps of patterned paper and two circle punches in her "Watery Melon" layout. Adding little details like this make the layout more playful without making it too overwhelming. The fun patterns April put inside the melons also enhance the big, juicy smile on the little guy's face.

Make Watermelon Accents

It's so easy to make these super-cute watermelon accents using just two circle punches and scraps of patterned paper in red and green. Simply punch large circles from the green patterned paper and smaller circles from the red patterned paper, and follow these quick instructions to complete the look:



1. Center and adhere red circle to green circle.



2. Cut layered circles in half to create watermelon slice.



3. Use hole punch to take a "bite" out of watermelon slice.


Easy, right? Now you know how to make the memory of biting into that juicy melon last!
