Mini Album Folio

Hello everyone!  Halloween is over and it's time to focus on other things that make me happy.  My family!!  I am blessed with 4 healthy sons, all grown up that have also shared their beautiful children in my life.  Its great to be a grandma!  I created this little mini album to share that is made out of 1 sheet of  8.5" x 11" paper.  After all the cutting and scoring, it folds up into a cute little book that can be tied with a ribbon.

To give credit where credit is due, I followed a tutorial I found here for the steps to make this album.
I used the pretty papers in the Delightful Daisy designer series paper to embellish the flaps and also some extra embellishments such as the crinkled seam binding in night of navy and Faceted Gems in Gold.  The border was made with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.


As the it opens up, there is surface on all sides to add your little photos.  I used app from Project Life to create these little pictures that measure in at 1 15/16" but you could make yours a bit bigger as I had plenty of room around the edges.  I also added some cute little stamping from the Tabs for Everything Stamp set.


When fully expanded, there are also little pockets to add some extra photos or journaling.  Also notice the tabs made on the journaling cards made with the Circle Tab punch.  I love this!!
