I decided to do something a little different with my file folder and make a little photo album out of it. You can see in the photos below how I cut it and machine stitched it together.
Here is how it looks originally.
I cut it in half and then cut both those pieces in half again. Leaving me with 4 pieces.
I added a couple extra pages using my Bo Bunny paper, just by cutting it to the same size. Then I just stitched it all together with my sewing machine along the left size. You will just not want to add to many pages or it will be too much for your machine to handle if you plan to stitch your binding. IF you wanted to add many pages you could just punch holes and add metal rings.
These Kraft Polaroids from Jillibean are so fun for photos.
This is the fun part, just adding photos and dressing up the pages.
It was a fun way to put together a little photo album that wasn't chipboard for a change. I really enjoyed it. It would be super easy to add little pockets for keepsakes ect also.
Hope you might feel inspired to to create one for yourself.
Thanks so much for coming by!
Hope your day is super!
