A Mini Album

I made this for my Hubby. He is overseas right now, serving his country. I altered an altoid tin for him to keep in his uniform pocket. Inside is a mini album with pictures of the kids and I. The paper is from Scenic Route. I made this album, a card and I still have some left over to play with! The base of the album is a 3 1/2 strip of 'kraft' colored cardstock. It is scored every 2 inches and folded like an accordion. I used a corner rounder to give each page more definition (and so it will fit in the tin). The front of the album says "A World Apart" I used rub ons from K&Co. The inside of the album says "but forever close in my heart"

That is adorable! I did the exact same thing for my brother who was in Iraq! I took pictures of the whole family at Thanksgiving and put them in the tin. He said it helped him a LOT through his tour as he kept it in his pocket too! I'm sure your DH will just LOVE this!
