Memorial Day !

Many of us have family out of state, and like to share things we do for the holidays- maybe a parade or a child's first sparkler. Photos are always great. So are cards, but I wanted to do a little more, so it became a mini album!

I started with Third Coast Stamp and Close to My Heart stocks, inks, markers. Made a card a little smaller than a regular card envelope, rounded the corners, added 1/4" larger pages. You can make yours smaller or larger inside or outside. Layered the pages inside. Add more if you like.

Add photos and bling . Adhere, staple or tie the fold with floss or ribbon, and you have a great surprise for someone long distance. Be careful what bling you add as you don't want it to get caught in the sorting machines in route.

Fits in a purse for a brag book, or stand on a table to display.
