10 Days of Photo Ornaments- Day 7- Matchbook Album

Happy Holidays!

Our Day 7 Ornament is a fun Matchbook mini mini album. It is sized for your wallet sized photos- or even some half size (3x4).

We used Echo Park Paper Company's I Love Christmas paper and stickers. You can make the book out of patterned paper or cardstock- but it should be cardstock weight.

Patterned Paper or Cardstock for cover- 3 1/2 x 10 1/4
Patterned Paper or Cardstock for pages- 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 for each page
12" of ribbon
Stickers or other embellishments

Score cover (3 1/2 x 10 1/4) at 1/2", 1", 5 1/2", 6"

Fold along score lines, folding up bottom.

Find center of bottom and punch a hole though all layers.

Score pages ( 4 1/4 x 3 1/4) at 1/2" along one of the short ends. Repeat for all pages.

Stack pages together and insert in book, punch a hole through all layers and fasten pages to book with a brad.

Punch holes on top folded area- about 1" from ends. Insert 12" of ribbon and tie on the inside of the cover.

Decorate your cover and pages as desired.
