Hello my dears, I made a mini Album last week using some Graphic 45 papers called Place in Time. I made it first with the idea of holding it together using large metal binding rings, but when I finally managed to find the rings I just didn't like how it looked.
So I had a dilemma !!!!!! I had already punched all the holes for the rings (here is an example)
how do I save this album and make it more beautiful!!!!
Easy Peasy!!! re-do the front & back covers, make a spine with and accordion page holder, take all the pockets off of each page and cut off the side with the 3 punch holes. Bwaaaaaaaaaah!!!!
I only lost about 1/4" from the side, which gave me an opening to attach to the page holder. Anyway if you scroll down you will see my now revamped and much prettier mini album.
Below is the revamped Album
