Bird Song Fan Mini Album


I have something special for you today. Not long ago I posted a project for a class where we would make a card box out of a cigar box and make our envelopes to go with the custom sized cards for that box using Graphic 45's Bird Song paper collection. (to review posting, click here.) Well, today I'm sharing with you the 2nd project of the 5 in Bird Song series.

Today's reveal is a fan mini album! And I loved every minute it took to make it! So let's get on with the photos, shall we.

Front of Mini
I love the little tiny butterflies I fussy cut and glued two back to back around the gold cord. When you fan out the pages it looks like this...


...and when you fan it open to see each page simultaneous it looks like this...


But, that is just from one side. If we flip it over to view from the back, closed, it looks like this...


Then fanning it open...


...and all the way...


So that's the fan in photos. I do have a short video presentation next, but please forgive all the "and...ummm"s. It was late and I didn't plan ahead what I was going to say, but at least you can get a few more details in the video.



So thank you for stopping by, and ask any questions you want in your comments. happy crafting everyone!
