here is a new "portfolio" file folder album for the holidays called "t'was the night" created with a manila file folder, which you can purchase here naked and ready to embellish. this album measures 4.5" X 6", opens to 10-1/4" has 10 covered pages, 14 pockets and 6 double-sided tags. the whole album is covered using premium card-stock papers from the "make it merry" collection by october afternoon. i will be listing this album in my etsy store today.
"t'was the night" cover
the cover of this album has 2 pockets, a tag, sweet hand cut reindeer cutouts, paper lace, and a gold snowflake charm attached with a ring to hold the vintage twill ribbon closure
just to show you a bit how it opens. i have tucked the flap inside (on the right) with a little brad snowflake for interest or to hang or attach a special ornament or paper.
pages 1 and 2
there are 2 pockets on each page (both children cutouts are pockets) with 2 tags tucked in. to give you and idea of the size here; the first page tag measures about 3- 3/8" X 5-3/8". the second page tag measures about 2.5" X 5-3/8". you can see the metal fastener binding which holds the file dividers in the album. (you may add more dividers or other pages to this binding.)
pages 3 and 4
there are 2 pockets on these two pages also; with the cutouts as pockets. you can clearly see the inside of the right flap in this picture.
pages 5 and 6
with a side pocket with a tag 2.75" X 5-1/4" slipped in on page 5 and a bottom pocket on page 6.
pages 7 and 8
each page has a bottom pocket and tag with a little token hang tag on page 8.
pages 7 and 8 again
for a better peek at page 8.
"t'was the night" backside
the tag on the right is like a side pocket so you can slide in a special memory.
open to show the full cover, binding and twill ribbon.
thank you all again, for stopping in. i should be back this coming week with a new altered book album, something a little different then i've done before. have a great day! -rebecca
