Gate Fold Vintage Mini Album

Here is a fabulous Gate fold Vintage Mini Album - I had a blast making this - it was a kit offered by Laura Everything needed to complete this album came in the kit. Loved it!!! The only change I made was using my own front and back cover DSP, added a few more keys, and back pocket DSP. Finished project measures: 8" x 4-1/4" x 2" the elastic band closure? I sure do!!!! It's an awesome idea from Laura!!!!

Here's a closer view of the fabulous closure:

There are (2) eyelets, then thread the elastic band through to make the loop:

And here is a close-up of the "hitch" - alternative option: use a button

Top view of project:

Here's the project fully spans across 20" with lots and lots of places for photos and journaling. I love the interaction of this type of album.

The following photos are of each page: with a large tag or (2) smaller tags in the pockets:

This really was a blast to make - I can't wait to make more of these in a variety of themes. Because this is a kit, a supply list will not be listed. I hope you enjoyed this project and will try one, too. For full directions of a Ustream tutorial go to Laura's blog site listed above in this posting......................thank you for visiting today. I enjoyed sharing this project with you.
