Thank you for your kind comments. I've not put pictures in any I've made, but that's certainly a possibility. I have some instructions for photo albums (wedding albums, baby brag books, etc.). One of these days I'll get around to making some of those. Most often I make these with blank pages (and envelopes).

The cover is actually wallpaper scraps. My MIL and I picked up several expired wallpaper books at a Sherman Williams store. Great resource!

After I posted the pictures above, I added some decoupage to the front cover. Of course, you may like the plain version better, though!

Here's another picture of the completed object:

It won second place in a craft fair (in the category of anything recycled), so not too shabby!
