Large Wallet Pocket Album

This is what I've been drawn to make in the last couple of days since I watched Clare's YouTube video on her Holly Jolly Christmas Wallet Pocket Album. Just love it! I'm thinking it can be used for a single event album such as Easter, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, etc.

I used the Basic Grey cappella 6x6 paper pad AND YOU WILL USE IT ALL! This is a great way to use up your 6x6 packs!!!

The album measures 6 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 1/2 inch and has multiple fold-out sections.

The instructions stated to use a magnet for the closure, however mine didn't hold it together once I covered all the pages and added tags - then the pictures will have to be added, so I added a belly-band for the closure, embellished with a home-made paper flower inked up with LSG sprays and an epoxy brad.

There is little to no embellishments due to the size of the album when closed, apart from punched edges, stamping and bits and pieces of paper. Also used the Tim Holtz Alterations Movers & Shapers "Journey" die for the front of the album.

Loved this little album, Clare explains it very well - the "how to" is in 5 parts and there's another showing the tags she made.
