Photo Album Purse Style by Linn Cole

I love to make gifts for my family and friends and since I do most of my pictures on DVD now instead of scrapping them I found that alot of people like the albums that I make that are little novelties!  Hence, the Photo Album that stands on it's own and looks like a PURSE!  Anyway, I used the "My Minds Eye" Design Paper from Bosskut,and some chipboard (cut on #4, pressure 4 and 2 passes with 1 o-ring), Two of the 'Popkuts', the Flower and also the Butterfly Tag!  Lov'em!!! I used some sparkle glitter, pearls and a white gel pen for writing on my tag using the Pink Lady. ( Click on gel pen to see a tutorial on how to do this)  I also used a binding machine to put my photo pages inside the purse.  Some of the pages have pockets for extra pictures or keepsakes and some are two sided and some have a fold down for 4 pictures, all together this little purse will hold 28 - 4" x 6" pictures!
 I also used embossing powder (clear) to make a faux alligator/patent leather  flap for closing using extra super strengh tiny magnets to hold the album flap closed and wide satin ribbon for the handle.  OF Course I made the template for ALL of this on my GAZELLE as always.  I say why cut by hand when you can use your Gazelle!!!!

Linn, very elegant and beautiful.

I really like black and white combo's and the Pop Kut flowers really make this project shine.
