Manila File Folder Album

This "album" is actually a birthday card I made for my friend, Judy, from a folded manila file folder. I really enjoy making interactive cards and that really poses a challenge when I make ATC's that are only 2.5"x3.5"! This card is oversized and is quite easy to make - just follow along with the instructions from TayloredExpressions.

The tags slide out and Judy can add her favorite photos to each one. I changed this from an accordian album to a "book" album by using double sided tape on the back fold. I love the vintage feel to this which seems to be my current trend - distress everything!

I used 6"x6" Basic Grey papers, 12"x12" Old World Paper Stack, and Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip 8.5"x11" cardstock. Go to the A.C. Moore web site to print out their current coupon and then go buy some of these amazing papers!! I used Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip ink with stamps from Paperbag Studios, Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps and Stampin' Up.
