Photo Wallet Brag Book



This fun little photo wallet brag book was featured on a blog named live.life.create.art . You can see Jen's version here. I had such a great time making this I decided to make a few more so baby Cole can send them out as Christmas thank you notes...what's better than pictures and a little journaling of your grandbaby?

Picture #1 shows the little wallet folded up...it is about the size of a credit card.

Picture #2 shows the book band off and the album folded out.

Picture #3 shows all little pages opened up and ready for pictures and journaling to be added.

Working dimensions.

Cut as follows:

1 piece @ 4 x 11 scored at 1- 3/4, 2,5, and 8 inches

3 pieces @ 7 -1/2 x 2 -3/4 scored at the half way mark of 3- 3/4 inch

Designer paper (whichever section you decide to put it) would be
3- 1/2 x 2 - 1/2 . I used three inside and three for the top pieces should you decide you want to put DP there.

Belly band: 1 x 8 (plus misc paper to decorate outside of album).

I would suggest that you glue your pages in alternating positions on the album spine so you can then add your DP in the correct positions. (I learned this the hard way LOL) It is easy to get the little pages mixed up.


I love making little mini albums and have also been working on a couple of pink little girl waterfall mini albums this weekend. They are almost done and I hope to get them posted this weekend or Monday at the latest. Make sure to stop back by to see these fun little albums!

Stamps: The santa hat is from the SU! sock monkey set, Journaling Block from Apple Blossum

Cardstock: Real Red, Certainly Celery, DCWV glitter Christmas paper, shimmer white

Ink: Certainly Celery, Black

Misc: retired SU! snowman punch, snowflake punch, circle punches, sizzix alphabet

Pin It!

Sue this is a terrific idea. Mum visited this Christmas, and it will be a good memento to send back with all the photos I took of her. :0)

This is fabulous, and it could not have come at a more perfect time!!! I was planning to send Jonathon some photos of the family to help cheer him up while he is in boot camp. I know he cannot have a ton of pictures taking up space, so this would be just the right size photo book!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Love and Hugs!
Carolyn
