Last weekend was my son's Junior Prom. He took his friend Samantha; they both looked so nice all dressed up for the occasion. My friend Aimee took a LOT of photos of Hunter, Samantha and a few of their friends. I wanted a special way for Hunter to give a set of prints to Samantha, so I made this accordion-style mini book based on a Retreat project from 2012, the Passport to Fun.
Five envelopes are attached to each other by the flaps and accordion-folded to create a booklet. Exposed sections of each envelope are matted with cardstock. Each envelope pocket holds a 5x7" matte for photos. I added two 10x7" papers, each folded in half and pamphlet-stitched inside to hold additional pictures. I used Cutaparts, rubber stamps and pearl stickers to embellish the booklet. I also added some die cut flowers made from Hydrangeas cardstock using my Sizzix Big Shot.
