Canvas Frames = Mini Tabletop Albums

This was a really fun project. I took two 8x10 canvas' and started creating hinged albums for Christmas pictures.

First I painted the edges and inside the back side of the frames.
Second I cut paper to fit each section and adhered it with Modge Podge
These steps are time consuming because everything has to dry.

I took page protectors for 6x6 albums and created mini albums to fit snug into the inner part of the frame. I did have to cut the width down to fit.
I used chipboard to make the album base and then used brads to hold it all together. Used coordinating papers to create pages.

I printed up some Christmas song lyrics and added those and some flowers to create something special.

These attach together with a hinge and you have an instant album that can be left open or stored away on a book shelf. Have fun and creating something wonderful. The possibilities are endless
