So it all started with me not being able to find an image that I had printed and wanted to use in my project. So I printed a duplicate. Then found the original…that I had stashed away somewhere I should have never put it in the first place. But that is soooo like me to squirrel stuff away..thinking I’ll remember where. So I created this book to organize all my printed images, and keep them from getting damaged. Here’s a look at the finished project:
This book started out as an inexpensive photo album picked up at the local dollar store. It’s meant to hold 36 ( 4 x 6 ) pics. Here is a super easy tutorial to show you how to make 1 ( 0r 2 or 3 ) of your own.
Now you’ll want to finish you cover with your favorite papers and embellishments. I covered mine with Middy Bags, then layered on lot’s of paperie goodies gifted to me by my dear friend Lisa W. She lives up North and I don’t get to see her very often. Every time I use this book…I’ll think of her : )
I think this book would be a great way to organize die cuts too. Or recipe cards you want to be able to take and see the back of. I think it would also be very sweet as a wedding or baby shower gift…..simply use the gift wrap from the gifts as your pages in the pocket and a little note from the gift giver….maybe some words of advice for the Bride or Mom to be : ) There are soooo many ways to use this book! And starting at only $1 each…you can make lot’s of them for very little. Even less if you use scraps.
Okay…that’s a long post…we all need to get up and stretch our legs lol.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
