Envelope Album with Robin's Nest

I purchased my Bare Album (DMD) at the local Dollar Store.  I added some "Glitter Little Girl Crown" and also used the back of this cardstock. "Glitter Girl Swirl" was my other choice for the album.  This could easily be made with the Bind-It All or some rings as the binding.  Hop on over to the Robin's Nest to check out all the Glitter Cardstock!  
Here's How to make your own.
1.)  Start with a Bare Album or make your own with eight #10 envelopes.

2.)  Using Glitter Little Girl Crown cardstock, trace the flap onto the cardstock.

3.)  Using Glitter Little Girl Crown and Glitter Girl Swirl, cut six or eight 3.25" x 8.5" pieces of cardstock to add to the envelope fronts.  Adhere to the envelope fronts.  Trace some of the envelope flaps and adhere.

4.)  Die cut the rosette using Glitter Little Girl Crown cardstock.  



5.)  Hot glue the rosette to a button.  Hold until dry.
6.)  Using Soft Gold ink, ink the "sweet" chipboard.

7.)  Glue the "sweet" at the bottom right of the front of the album.
8.)  Hot glue the silver crown in the center of the rosette.

9.)  Place a piece of scrap paper under the flap and hot glue the rosette on the bottom center of the flap.
