Timeless Rubber Band Album

I've had a lot of fun
lately making mini albums. Like anyone who gets hooked on this art form, I've wanted to try them all... all types, all sizes, all styles. This is my second attempt at the rubber band mini, but made larger than my first here

For the pages I used
full 12"x 12" sheets from Kaisercraft's Timeless collection. The covers are black chipboard covered with Timeless also.

For the spine, I like a
fabric cover. I was out of canvas at the time, so I tried a piece of crinoline colored with Distress Inks. Only time will tell how it wears, but I'm very fond of the look. (As you can see, Ranger still hasn't sent me my replacement Heat Tool... 3 months now.)

I covered the inside
with more Timeless, then added the pages using the rubber bands.

No embellishments on these.

The front of each 
accordion fold page has a pocket for a journaling tag or a photo mat. The backs are just plain and will be great for photos.

Here you can see how
the rubber bands go around the spine and hold the pages on, looped through the first and second fold of each. Easy to take out and replace.

This one is fun and useful
as well. Can be used as a holder for post cards or similar paper items.
I love this hobby!
Have a great weekend, friends!

Thanks for stopping by!
