Italian Album

So for Christmas I kind of pulled out all the stops. I'm kicking myself for not taking pictures of the absolutely awesome wrapping job I did. It involved buttons sewed on ribbons. 'Nuff said. Anyway, I made books and stationery for everyone, but this post I'll just focus on my Italian Album.

I made two of these albums - one for my Aunt and one for my Grandmother. They loved both of them! And here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Some info about the album: It's filled with old family photos that I re-printed on HP Premium photo paper. It's bound with a weirdo combination binding that I made up, consisting of coptic stitch and a maple leaf stitch that's normally reserved for stab binding, but I adopted it to fit this. Because it's coptic bound it lies flat when opened. I cut slits in the pages to hold the photos in.
