December 2009 Memories

I did not attempt a December Daily album this year (like Britney & Katie did!) , but I did want to create some sort of mini album recording some of my favorite Christmas pictures.

I used a card from the November Scripts kit to create the cover for the album, then I folded and cut several interior pages (folded just like a card and nestled with each other) from kraft colored cardstock. I punched two holes with my Crop a Dile and threaded some hemp through them and tied them to hold them all together.
I covered the inside page with some of that lovely glittery polka-dot paper! Super cute!

My Silhouette machine came in handy to add a few fun die cut touches.
I alternated punching & tearing the edges of the 'pages' of the album. I like the touch it adds!
I think backing the hole in the gift tag with the red text paper added a cool look.
I used a bit of masking tape, here and there, to the album to add to the "handmade/haphazard" feel of the album. ;)
Thanks for looking!
