Here is the paper that I used for the cards inside:
I cut out the 12 cards and glued them front to back to make 6 pages. On each page a add a tab with a word cut from patterned paper. For the covers, I simple used two pieces of chipboard and covered them with the flocked paper on the outside and splattered with white paint. I punched one small hold in the middle of the left edge and threaded a piece of twine with a little “give” to allow for the pages to open up. I then glued the black velvet ribbon around the album spine and added some length so it could wrap back around the front. I added some magnetic closures to help the ribbon stay closed. I die cut a doily shape from patterned paper and fussy cut the butterfly from one of the papers.
On each page I simply put a photo of the kids and added some punched flowers and a few other embellishments here and there. I forgot to do this before I photographed, but I do want to add the dates to each page. The photos are in chronological order. A simple, yet sweet album that I know my mom will love!
