Valentine's Matchbook Album

This is a little matchbook album that I made for my parents for Valentine's Day. I hope they like it!
Zutter O-wires
Zutter Bind-it-All
Cardstock and patterned paper
Baseball card protectors

First you will need to cut a piece of cardstock 10 x3 1/4. Score at 1 inch and at 4.5. Fold. With the bottom 1" fold folded up (Do not include the top 4.5 folded part to this step) punch with Bind-it-all. Add your photos to your card protectors and punch. To bind, fold the 1" bottom piece to touch the back of the album and your photos on the inside of the album. Add your o-wire and then fold bottom piece around back to the front. It should cover the bottom portion of your photos. Now just embellish your album. I used rhinestone strips and hearts on my cover. On the inside I used Glossy Accents and glass microbeads by Martha Stewart by drawing a heart with pencil, tracing with the Glossy Accents and then adding the beads.

A very simple but sweet album to give to loved ones! Why not try one for yourself! Happy creating!
