Christmas Flip Photo Album

Happy Holidays
I would like to share with you a Flip Photo album I created recycling a priority box cut in half, after cutting away the lids it looks like a "book" (meaning front & back cover and spine) I glue the open end close to create the stand base of the album, punch two holds on the same glued end for my binder rings (hope that made sense lol)... I used a very old DCWV Christmas paper line, very traditional. My family and I are going to spend the Christmas holidays away from home for the first time... staying with family and friends in Miami and Minnesota! (can you say freezing on that last one brrrr... lol) So I'll be using this to put some highlights of our trip.

This is the base of the stand (priority box).

So there is my very traditional Christmas album. I forgot to give you a side view of the stand but it is shaped like a triangle so it can stand on it's own. If you have any question please feel free to ask.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, I truly appreciate your time :-)
Have a safe and joyous Chrismas and New year!!!
