I went to Convention for Close to My Heart this past weekend. I saw something that I LOVED. It was a little album made from envelopes. It is so cute and easy!! Since this is a summer hop, I am using an older paper pack called Splendor. There are 4 pockets for pictures or memorabilia. This ties shut with ribbon. All items for this project are from Close to My Heart, list provided after pictures.
This is the front of it while tied closed.This is one of the sides of it while opened. There are places for photos. You can see the ribbons of the 3 hidden tags that insert in the envelope.Here is the other side. This includes a little tag pocket on one section. Under the Frog is a flap of an A-Door-able where you can put a picture or anything else.This is a picture of the little tag in the pocket.
These 3 tags have plenty of space on them. You could put a picture on one side and lots of room for journaling.
