Wedding Album

This is Wedding album I made for my son's wedding pictures. I crafted the entire album covers using 12x12 chipboard which I painted a off white color then covered with a large embossed wedding napkin. I made it hinged and I bought 12x12 refill album pages and used the hardware that came with it to bind the pages and cover together, then covered each screw with a faux pearl. The hinge was covered with a morie' ribbon and then added a beaded trim to add a bit of color. I also used a faux pearl trim to edge the ribbon. I glued a length of organza ribbon down the middle on both front and back which will serve to "tie" or secure the album closed. I added some more beaded/sequined trim for accents and glued some coordinating roses for some romance. For the picture I used a precut matt picture frame and did the same treatment with the napkins to cover. I placed a picture in sepia tone of my son and his new wife protected by a transparency overlay. I have found a website I used to order my trims and ribbons from out of Ft. Worth Texas. If interested you may use this link to their site. http://flightsoffancyboutique.com. I purchased the napkins from Hobby Lobby. The 12x12 chipboard, I purchased from scrapbook.com
