Creative Elements Pocket Album

This is the Pocket Album I showed at convention –

The front is stamped with Creative Elements and has several Beau Chateau SIde Notes – and a vintage tag with an antique brad – to decorate.  Here’s the inside –

To make the album you need two 6 x 12 pieces of card stock (Pink Pirouette) scored in half for the covers and a 6 x 12 piece of card stock scored at every inch for the accordion middle.  The cover is attached on each end of the accordion.  Make 5 Petite Pockets (3 in Pink Pirouette and 2 in Marina Mist) and attach them to the exposed accordion folds.  I added some inside pockets and some more Side Notes (because I just love them!) 

Inside each pocket I put a note card like the one above.  The ribbon to tie it closed is run through the back cover piece only.  I used my hobby blade to cut a slit on the folded edge so it could run all the way through.  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
