This is such a fun and easy project - you can make several in one evening or in stages! This makes a cute gift for a new grandparent, an end of the year Thank You to a special teacher, or as a mini album showcasing one event, as I have created here.
One A9 size Basis Perfect Pockets Card (I used red)
Coordinating Patterned Paper (I used Close to My Heart's Fanfare Paper pack)
Inexpensive 8 1/2" x 11" plastic page protectors (you'll need one for every two photos)
Two large brads
One 8 1/2" x 11" sheet Blanc Malmero Perle cardstock
Printer or Alphabet Stamps or both
5x7 photos - I used 11 photos
Step 1: Cut the 8 1/2" x 11" page protectors in the following manner. First, cut off the strip with the holes in it, leaving the inside seam intact. Then, cut the page protector with the bottom seam at the 5 1/4" mark. Then, cut 1/2" off the side opposite your side seam.
Step 6: Pocket: Cut a 2 5/8" x 5 1/4" patterned paper and adhere inside. I used a sentiment from Close to My Heart's Horizon stamp set. The pocket is perfect for smaller photos, memoribilia, additional journaling, you name it!
Step 7: Insert your photos into the protectors and adhere one photo to the back of the album.
Wasn't that fun and easy? Just imagine the variety of fun ways you can give a memory using these Perfect Pockets cards!
