MCT 3D Wednesday ~ mini album!



Hi everyone!  I hope your week is going GREAT!  The last few weeks I've been getting so much done around my home, cleaning out closets and such.  I'm either way behind my spring cleaning or WAY ahead of the game!  :)  Even though I've been working around the house I took a little time out to craft and even did some organizing of my dies.  My friend Katie gave me the inspiration to make the change.  I was looking for her post but couldn't find it :/

Now I need to get on to why you came to visit me.  Today is 3D Wednesday over at My Creative Time!  For my project I decided to make a "matchbook" mini album.  I used the Trifold Card and the Stitched Folder to created this little book.

I stapled all the folders together into the card.

For the camera die, I used double sided patter paper then simply turned over the inside piece to create the different paper for the lens and view finder.

I left the top of the frame without adhesive to allow for a picture to slide in.


To create the vellum pocket I cut two folders and cut it in half.
 

Then I used some thick hemp and a brad for a closure.

This is so adorably cute. I love it. I would love to know if those are staples down the left hand side of the match book holding it together.? Thanks for sharing this great project.!

I did staple the folders to the trifold card, then on the back I glued a strip of paper to cover the staples. Plus it protects your fingers from getting caught. I forgot to show that :/ Thank you for your sweet comment!
