Perfect little wallet sized mini scrapbook

I loved Kathy's Journal suitcase album she made but wanted one to put wallets in so i took her measurements and divided them in half and came up with a smaller version of her album.  I love it. I did put flowers on the cover and now that I think about it I think they will get messed up in my purse but that gives me another reason to make another one right?

Drawer Calendar Easel

I made this drawer years ago to hold 5 cards and envies. I saw a post on you tube of an easel box with calendar. I printed the calendar from Cat . She has tons of calendar templets.

The box is made of card stock.

You will need 4 sheets of 8 1/2 by 11 card stock. I like to use Stamping Up! card stock as it's very thick and of great quality and is colored all the way through. I hate that white core card stock! You can get Stamping Up products from my friend Deb here.

1 sheet cut to - 9 1/8 by 6 1/8 - score at 1 1/2 on both short sides and 1 long side
1 sheet cut to - 9 1/6 by 6 1/16 - score 1 1/2 on both short sides and 1 long side
1 sheet cut to - 8 3/4 by 7 1/4 - score all sides at 1 3/8
You will need a piece that measures 7 by 3/4 scored at 1, 1 1/2, 5 1/2, 6. This is the handle.
1 sheet 10 1/4 by 6  1/4 - score at 3, 5 5/8 - This is the easel and you attach this to the top of the box.

I cut mats 1/4 inch smaller

This one is for my Mom. I need to find a picture more up to date as this one is 4 years old!! How sad that I don't even have a recent family picture and I scrapbook.  I guess I spend all my time taking the pictures. LOL
