Bridal Shower gift

Hi Stampers!!
Well I am still plugging away at the tons of schoolwork piled on me just now, but every once in a while I have a "gotta do now" stampin' project, like the one I finished for a Bridal shower at work today.  I share my room at one of my schools with 6 other ladies and one of them (the YOUNG one) is getting married in August.  You may recall seeing the bride and groom shower favors I posted a few weeks ago.  Well tonight I want to share with you the mini album I made for her.  The dimensions when the book is folded up are 6 x 6.

The picture above shows the book closed with the tags in a mini cello bag.  These tags are for her to attach to the pages (if she wants) as titles.

The picture above shows the front of the book without the tag bag.

The above picture shows what you see when you open the front  left flap = the paper on the left is polka dotted bumps and the paper on the right is that gorgeous textured looking lace.

This picture (above) shows what you see when you open the next flap on the right.

And here is the next, left-sided flap open.  I think you can tell that all the top papers are the same.

The picture above shows all the flaps fully opened.  Again all the visible paper match - the center page on the right showed some texture that did not show well in the photo.

These are the title tags I made that she can position in the book whereever she sees fit.

This last photo shows the two parts before I slipped the tag bag under the bow.  She seemed happy to receive this hand crafted gift....and I got some relaxation time while I made it.  I can help you make a similar book...just leave me a comment or email me.

What a beautiful gift for a bride, Peggy. You did a great job. Do you have a tutorial for it? I have a friend getting married this summer and would love to send them one. Is that real lace on the front cover?
