Although it is a Christmas mini I am still going to share it.

Front Cover

Pages 1 & 2

Pages 3 & 4

Pages 5 & 6

Back Cover

All of the envelopes open & can or do hold something.

Some Close ups: There are actually tiny bells hanging off the stocking to the right of the bells on the die cut. The stocking is popped up a bit allowing for you to tuck a photo on that page.

Oops...sorry about the sideways view but you can see how the gold ball chain hangs off the gifts were given tag pretty well that way.

The insert in the green envelope is actually an acetate with the word hope on it & some scroll work. It's quite pretty.

That is actually a Webster's Pages fabric ribbon piece along the bottom edge adhered to be used as a pocket which is housing the envelope & tag.

Here's the insert pocket within the pocket on page 5. As you can see there is plenty of space for some photos of smaller sizes or journaling.

The vellum pocket opens up to allow you to store memorabilia, sentiments, tickets, a photo or a journaling spot.

Close up of the embellishment tucked inside the back cover vellum envelope. I made it using a stick pin & some die cut pieces.

I think I can adapt much of the format for other holidays, birthdays or special occasions. And yes, that is actually an antique faucet handle I purchased @ an antique store on the cover. It was originally that green color. I had to clean it up a bit but otherwise I did nothing more to it than add that gold button in the center.

So what do you think?
