On The Ninth Day of Christmas

I made a little album to place upon the page.

The right hand side page houses a little book.
The book contain just a few pages.
I selected a black cover and red inside pages. Cut the pages slightly small than the cover. Stitch the pages to the cover using pamphlet stitch.  Cut roughly a third off the back cover and glue to the page. Then I added a gift tag for decoration. This was held with glue. A hole was created at the top of the tree and a brad snowflake was pinned in place. The fastener for the book is also a snow flake brad. The front cover of the book just tooks underneath it. A festive picture, by Docraft was place of the front of the mini book with text by Cosmo Cricket. These little internal books are great places for the children of the household to add their stories of Christmas. Or it could be a mini photo album of the pets, not that we dress them up and take silly pictures of the cats at Christmas!

The left hand side consists of a backing paper with a shield shape cut using the big shoot. The paper used is the removed pages from the original book. "wish list", by Cosmo cricket. Jingle bells is a card topper  by Wilkinson's.
