A Pocket Photo Brag Book

From Heidi...One of the ladies that came to our SAS last month generously shared this Pocket Card pattern with me, and I really enjoyed creating this little book based on the pattern. Thank you, Susan! I changed the dimensions a little, so that I could include a gift card holder in one of the pockets. The basic pattern dimensions are: 5-1/4" x 10-1/4", scored at 4, 8, 8-1/4". My finished dimensions are 4-1/8"x5-1/4" and fits inside an A2 envelope.
Instead of using an envelope for the inside pockets, I made my own using DS paper. I created this as a Mother's Day Photo Brag-Gift Card Holder Book (whew! that's a mouthful). I printed the inside greeting and then snailed it into the inside flap of the card. This would make a great gift for someone...with little pictures included in the photo card envelope and then a gift card in the other envelope. What a fun project! This will be a fun thing to do at one of our Stamp Club/Project Classes. Thanks for looking.
