Football Mini-Album

I thoroughly enjoyed taking action photos of Spencer and his teammates playing football during the last few weeks.  They all learned so much, did really well and were a lot of fun to watch this season.  I wanted to create a mini album as a "thank you" to the coach.  I tried something new this time and thought I would share the idea.  I took a package of 6x6 Kraft Die-Cut Cards & Envelopes (Z1474), opened the flaps of the cards and adhered several cards together using tombow.  Once they are glued together, you can fold the album "accordion style."  I wanted to include a photo of each team member, so I added as many pages as I needed.  I placed a team group photo on the front cover.  I stamped a big THANK YOU on the inside cover and left it blank for team signatures.  I stamped each team member's name under their photo.  If you create a small album with these cards, it will fit in the kraft envelope included.  However, my album got a little too big to fit in the envelope.  I used a plastic 6x6 stamp organizer (Z335) for an envelope -- it was a perfect fit!
