Scrapbook in a tin..

Here's what we've been making at the last couple of workshops..


A concertina style scrapbook album which extends out from its tin.

We used the gorgeous Washington apple papers from the mini-catalogue to cover the tin & decorate the pages. To make little hinges for every page we used the round tab punch...so easy to do! - just punch them out & fold in half - perfect hinges!

The journaling & date block are from the office accoutrement stamp set.

The tin holds 12 double sided pages so plenty of space for a whole bunch of photos - I filled mine with photos I'd taken whilst at Shoreham airshow last year.
