I had some papers from a Prima collection (I believe it was called "Romantic Novel"). I decided to make a mini album with it, but needed a few more papers, so I then went to Marion Smith's site and downloaded the "Vintage Telegram" collection. Here is what I came up with.
I made this book using envelopes and cards. There is no chipboard in this album. The pages are the binding. There is no separate binding mechanism. I used the papers as mentioned above. The flowers are a combination of Prima, Petaloo and Recollections. The bling is by Recollections as well. The leaves for the flowers are 7 Gypsies. The closure is a simple ribbon closure.
On the spine, I used two Prima key paper clips, then treaded the ribbon through it and tied a knot.
I hope you enjoyed this project. I loved making it. I am going to do a tutorial on how I made it very soon, and will do a video as well.
Have a great day...Stay Crafty, My Friends!!
