Who doesn't love Gold!!! 

For my project today I created an accordion photo album and case. I just love these for gifts, and to present them a little more decoratively I create a box to fit them. 

First cut your 12x12 paper to 4x12 and score the 3 strips at 4" and 8" and fold as shown below

Lay one on top of another ensuring that the accordions will open correctly and adhere with Xyron Permanent adhesive

I created a few embellishments with the Craftwell eBosser and the Xyron CreateASticker.

My Son loves BOTH of these machines! He is always using them and they are both so easy to use that I don't mind so much! 

After running the circle die through the stickermaker, I embossed it with a Bird Embossing folder in the Craftwell eBosser and inked it heavily with Gold Pigment

Just lay the sticker in the Embossing folder with the backing still attached and run it through your eBosser

One great thing about the sticker maker is that your elements do not have to be flat! I pulled this heavily embossed paper through with ribbon on it easily!

This was a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder and also heavily inked with gold.

And here is the Case

Pull out the drawer and you have your Photo Album! 

Here are the various pages decorated with some open pages for the recipient to add their photos! 

On the above bird embellishment I used the reverse side of the embossing folder so the emboss went in and I was inking the negative image

Don't you just love gold right now!?

Thank you so much for stopping in today! Here is the Hop Line-up in case you missed anyone! The prize winner will be receiving some FABULOUS embossing folders from Craftwell, so don't miss out on your chance to win!!!
