Reusable Journal and Photo Scrapbook Mini Album


This is called "reusable" journal because you can insert and pull out small store-bought journals (or print your own) under the elastic binding of the three removable folders. It also doubles as a scrapbook album where you can attach photos and slide mementos into the many pockets. The book contains 10 pages (5 double-sided base pages) not including the inside front or back covers. I used gorgeous papers by K&Company throughout. This journal/album measures 6" wide by 8-1/2" high and is 2-3/4" thick.  It is held closed with a removable ribbon tied into a bow. I attached a handmade flower to the front cover with a piece of crystal jewelry, and some applique along the spine. All papers, chipboard and glues are acid-free.

I really enjoy making these albums so I pay extra special attention to details.  Comes from a smoke-free and pet-free home. 

Please do not let young children play with this item as small embellishments might become detached which could be a choking hazard.
