Awesome Sisters Mini Album

I had so much fun making this mini album that I want to give my sister as a gift. We don't see each other nearly as much as I'd like (you know, east coast-west coast living...). I can't wait to find the perfect pictures to complete the album. I used various sizes of the awesome chipboard shapes from MOSD. For the cover, I cut one in half so I could use it as an "open door" into the album.
I have displayed a few of the pages as the mini book opens. All in all, in addition to my cover, I used two 4 x 6 pages, one page with a scalloped edge, a page with a curved edge (kind of a "D" shape) and a 6 x 6 page for the back cover.
I was also happy to use some of my "stash" to decorate the book. I used various patterned papers I've had for a while, some Basic Grey Rub-ons, and some ribbon and flowers from my MOSD products. The "door knobs" on the front cover are from the dollar store. I believe they are supposed to be for jewelry making. I popped some small buttons on the front cover and covered them with the decorative metal pieces to make my "door knobs".
Oh yes, I also used one of the "clearly stated" quotes from my MOSD products, too.
Thanks for visiting and have a MOST WONDERFUL day!

This is awesome. I want to make one for my sister but have never done it before. Are they hard to do and what do you use for binding it?
