Baby Boy Bitty Album

A special gift for a special Baby Boy: this is a retired Stampin-Up Bitty Books which are a snap to decorate but serves a great purpose for 3" x 3" snapshots. Finished Album case size is 5" x 4-1/4" x 1-3/8".  The original project is chipboard which was painted with white paint.  Inside album is 4-4/8" x 3-3/4" x 1".
Front Box Cover:
Double matted album cover and album using Bazzil Evening Surf and Doodlebug Anchors Aweigh Knots.  Center of album cover is using White card stock and Bazzil Evening Surf cut using the Silhoutte Nested Shape cut file.  Adding texture to the Evening Surf card stock by using the Cuttlebug Argyle Embossing Folder. 
Small baby onesies are also cut using the Silhouette Baby Banner file (without the string across the top) - add foam squares to them. Popped up name with foam squares is cut using the Silhouette, too. Making the white card stock shadow was a snap with the Silhouette.
The fun part of this album cover is the spinning Baby Pacifier (a Silhouette Baby cut file).  Use Stampin-Up Word Window to punch the slot for the spinning. Two one cent pennies are used to allow spinning.
Spine: 1/8" wide white satin ribbon is wrapped, single knotted with boy themed charms. These charms can be found at a local craft store. To secure the knots and charms from coming loose, use Ranger's Glossy Accents.
Double mats same as the album cover used for the outside of the album cover.   Two blue baby pins on the bottom right corner: cut using the Bazzil Evening Surf and Metallic Silver.
