     Alrighty then!  Now that's all out- For my project today, I used an old Reader's Digest Book to create a Mini Album for this year's Holiday pictures :)

I cut the front & back covers off and a few of the pages.  I cut some extra pages out of patterned paper.  Then I punched holes in the cover and pages.  They are hooked together with binder rings.  I cut a hole in the cover because I found the perfect little picture of "hanging stockings".  Added embellishments and tied ribbon around binder rings.  As a finishing touch I sprayed the book with spray glitter.  

I hope you enjoyed my project today.
