For my SIL’s 40th birthday I created a combined birthday book and card album – keep track of the birthdays and always have cards ready at hand!

Materials:

2 pcs cardboard, 8×8″

12 paper bags, cut to 8″ length

ass patterned papers

12 pcs cardstock/paper with months and dates printed

1 1/4″ o-wires and

BIA

Dress up the covers and cut the paper bags to fit. Make the holes and bind together using the Bind-It-All.

Decorate the covers with papers and embellishments of choice, and make all the cards to go with it!

This is a great gift that will give pleasure in several steps – first the one who gets it, and then those that gets all the lovely cards!

For this album I used Webster’s Pages patterned papers, UTEE gold on the edges of the covers and embellishments from stash.

The Bind-It-All and wires and UTEE from Bumblebee.
