Patriotic Mini Albums

I spent several hours (almost four) making this mini album today. I had originally intended to make a 4th of July album, however Brad suggested that I make them Patriotic albums, because people may want to fill them and send them to their loved ones in the military. What a genius, my husband.

Anyway, I've put this one up on Etsy. I looked online and the paper has been discontinued, so I went back to Michaels today and bought the rest of what they had in stock. I have enough to make somewhere between 35-50 albums, if they take off. And if not, then I should be able to re-sell the paper because it is discontinued.

These have red, white, and blue themed papers and embellishments. USA and flag borders, and buttons I added glitter to with a glitter pen. They also feature a preview window cut in the front cover (another suggestion by Brad - I should pay him for this stuff!). I used my dremel tool and a fine grit sandpaper attachment to sand the edges to distress it a bit. And of course, my Crop-a-Dile Big Bite for the holes.
