~ Distant Memories Mini Album ~

Because today is Valentine's day, it seems like a good time to show you one of my recent creations.

Many years ago, when my husband (who I was then dating) had to leave town to do study, he wrote me every day and I have kept the letters all these years. I decided they should have a nice place to be stored so here is what I made.  


It is a series of six folders laced together on the side and bound with seam binding.  I added a charm and a key to the side  and this is what they look like inside....

The old letters are stored in the flaps and I have added photos throughout of us when we were young.  I made a tiny envelope and inside I have written a little note about the album.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for leaving me a comment.
