A new "Blue Monday" craft & a winner!

I have wanted to make an accordion/fold memory book for some time.
~they can be made in all kinds of shapes and sizes~
~they make wonderful gifts for any occasion~
~they are quite easy to make~
~and fun too~
~each section offers a unique spot to add a photo, journaling or whatever you like~
~here's my first attempt~


It is so cool how it opens up...
Here it is fully opened and laying flat.

 It is ready for me to fill with photos, tags and embellishments!
A "blank slate" waiting for the artist!
HERE is a great tutorial if you would like to try one of these albums yourself!

Congratulations to Becky! That memory folder is very cute. I'd never seen one, but I went to the tutorial and it looked pretty simple. I'm thinking it might even be a good craft for my kids. I love the colors you chose.
Blessings,
