On the inside cover, to cover the brads I simply cut a couple of 45 degree angles out of my scraps that I had left over and made a nice tailored edge.
I absolutely just love this little mini album. It was so much fun to make and believe it or not it wasn't that hard to make at all. Seriously! It looks really complicated but once you have the basics down and follow along with the patterns it goes really fast. Of course, I've been having to work on this and other things (like spring cleaning) and keeping this well hid so that my husband doesn't stumble upon it til my son and I give it to him. I believe the hardest part of all of it is going to be finding just the right pictures to put in it and doing the journaling. I'm terrible when it comes time to actual journal something. It seems like my mind just goes completely blank on me. So I'll have to do a bit more sneaking to get the pictures printed off and put in the album.
Hope that you all have enjoyed the posts and it has inspired you. Oh something that I was thinking about the other day is this....you could always leave the binding tab off of any of these pages and make a card out of any of these templates. Now wouldn't any man be proud to get a nice looking card like that? Just something to think about.... Hope that everyone has had a wonderful day!
