Mini Album/Photo Display

Sorry I took Monday off.  We got back from vacation on Sunday night and I just couldn't get myself out from the piles of dirty laundry long enough to post on Monday.  But I'm back now!

My dear friend Tammy is graciously inviting all her friends and neighbors over for a private stamping class next week.  She told me exactly what she wanted and I went to work trying to make it happen.  :)

She asked for a mini album/fold-out photo display that would make a great little add on gift for grandparents.  I had made some of these a few years ago for a boutique and that is where she got the idea.  They measure 4"x12" and scored every 3" and accordion folded.

The hard part for me with these things is trying to make them gender neutral enough that you could put boys' or girls' photos on it and that a man could put it on his desk without getting ribbed by his coworkers.

Here's what it looks like from the outside when it's all folded up:

And here is what it looks like open without the photos in it:
I added photos of my cute nieces to it and then gave it to her to show her friends before I took more pictures. Oops!  There is another project for her class to and I'll show that on Friday so come on back.

SUPPLIES:

Colors: Soft Suede, Pool Party, River Rock, More Mustard and Very Vanilla
