12 Days of Christmas Mini Book

I participated in a mini book class at Scrapbook Territory recently and made this really cute project. It was taught by Glenda (you can contact Scrapbook Territory for her for upcoming classes ).  It was a great group of gals who all made little mini books using papers of their choice and putting their own signature tot he project.  The paper I chose is the Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas..................finished album size is 4-1/4" x 6-1/4" excluding the top of the tags.
Here's a better photo of the front closure: the charm is from Joanne's attached with a "o" ring to the Tim Holtz ideaology Ring Fasteners.
 On all the pages, a Sakura Crystal gel pen used to highlight many of the areas:
Closure: Chain and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ring Fasteners along with a Lobster Claw. Lobster claw can be purchased in any craft store jewelry section. Create the clousure using a punnch through the covered chipboard.
 Side binding:
 The four pocket pages:
 Now for the photo detail of the pages:
 Here's the tag with a punched "cloud" corner by My Memory Keepers, size is 4" x 6-1/2". There are four tags for photos or journaling.
This was a great fun project that would fit many of the those papers with divided photo mats........try it!!! I plan to make a few more of these little books in a variety of sizes.
