Scrapbook Kaleidoscopes

Scrapbook Kaleidoscopes are a great way to add interest and creativity to a page layout.

Such a unique look can be completed using any picture with a single, predominant subject.

It can either be created as the focal point of the page, or as a beautiful, intricate embellishment.

It's easiest to get a pattern for photo kaleidoscopes, before you begin, to learn proper placement.

Depending on the look you want, you will have to determine how many 'spokes' you want on your kaleidoscope wheel. This will in turn, determine how many copies of the picture you need to make.

Another thing to keep in mind are the edges that you cut. You must be very precise to ensure that the photos line up, without gaps.

There is a simple solution, if you're willing to wait a while for your kaleidoscope.
