I loved this Club Scrap kit, Artifacts, January 2009! It was perfect for my niece Ellie’s first year swim team pictures. My dilemma was that I did not want these gorgeous pages in page protectors. God I hate those! It reminds me of an old lady I knew when I was a kid. She covered all of her furniture with plastic, carpet too! If I am making a book for little ones, I will use them, otherwise I like my pages to be 3-D, interactive, and touchable! I played with some different ideas and came up with this one. Because Club Scrap paper is so thick and sturdy, I felt comfortable making an accordion fold binding out of it. I glued my 12*12 pages back to back and glued them to the accordion spine. I bought a sheet of matte board at Hobby Lobby and had them cut it into 14*14 squares, (I ended up with 4 and two smaller pieces for another project). The covers ended up costing $5 or so, I couldn’t buy an album for that! I modge podged some of the Artifacts paper to the covers and used some grungeboard hinges for extra support. I am so pleased with how this turned out!
