Birthday Washi Bitty Album

My favorite gift to make: a bitty album covered using Washi paper. This gift serves as the card, too and it was sent to a favorite blog friend of mine in Hawaii. The ovals were cut using my Silhouette Cameo and SCAL3. Krylon Gold painter pen is used for the chipboard edges. A variety of silk and paper flowers surround the oval frame.

Confession: yes, this was a belated birthday stamped in the message.
And, the album spine has ever so fabulous charms .......cute, eh?
Here's a closer look at those flowers. I used a hot glue gun to attach them to be certain they will not fall off....................

Surprise: The oval stamped message in the front album casing is removable for a photo. The photo would be protected by the acetate (also cut usng my Silhouette Cameo and SCAL3)
Album simply has the gold embossed words"memories". The frame is from the SCAL3 label library and size for the stamp message and a mat.

For the inside, a 1-1/4" strip of Washi on each side with embossed solid finishes the album
Here's a better view of the Blossom Mums embossing folder made by Crafts-Too.
