going green!

recycle, regift & rejoice with this itty bitty purse and album.
The purse was made from a soap package I found at Pier 1.
It measures just 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".
The itty bitty album was made by cutting 2 strips of card stock 2" high. I scored each strip at 2" intervals leaving enough room on one of the strips for the flap that folds to the front. On the strip with the flap, at the end of the last score, I made 4 additional scores just apart from each other, using about 1/2" of the strip, before the flap so it would fold over nicely. I fan folded each strip and attached the strip with the flap, to the other on the last fold. I decorated each page of the album with coordinating patterns. Using a tiny strip of paper, attached only to the front, I made a closure for the album.
I found making the itty bitty purse and album much easier than writing the instructions for it. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
