MIchelle Memorial album for Dannielle

Custom made paper bag album
6x6.5 inch black paper bag album for Dannielle.
I’ve used matt gold metallic paper along with an ivory pearl cardstock.
There’s a hint of patterned paper also throughout the album- some have a tiny bit of high finish gold foiling.
The cover is my favourite bit as it is a flocked raised velvet pattern- I’ve left it blank because I thought you could cut out a photo and pop it on the cover. ( your photo will slip under the organza ribbon!)
There’s 12 pages in all with some lift up flaps for extra space along with a fold out page.
One handmade pocket for little memorabilia too.
The bit I’m happiest with is that I’ve left loads of room for photos but been a bit tricky by actually making a pocket UNDER the photo area-neat!
Hand embossed damask in both negative and positive positions give the papers some really textural depth.
Hope you like? xx

a cute extra flap holds a heartfelt quote. Photos will easily slip under the ribbon
