Not only was this fun to create it was easy - and your only seeing the outside right now - I'll post the inside soon! If you remember I decorated a 7 Gypsies Board Book with the Close To My Heart Route 66 Paper Pack and Route 66 Stickease for our trip to Lake George - well, I still had left over paper from that project. SO.....I decorated this darling 7 Gypsies Purse Album. All the very detailed directions will be posted in the Memory Works Scrapbook Club Album (members only!)
The front is kept shut with a piece of Close To My Heart Waxy Flax looped around a WeRMemory Makers large snap - the snap was adhered using the very cool Crop-a-dile from WeRMemory Makers. The dangling brass star is from my stash. When your at garage/house sales check out the little junk boxes - you'll be surprised at what you'll find.
To get a really great snug fit with the paper just use a glue stick and a bone folder. The handle is two pieces of ribbon from the same Close To My Heart Cranberry Collection Ribbon I used last month. I still have plenty of paper and supplies left over for the accordian album that's hidden inside.
