Button Back Album

Hi you all! Hope you had a good weekend, and wish you a good start in the week.

I made another button - back album, where the pages are sewn together and fixed by threading through the four buttons on the spine. The album has been filled with paper in colours coordinating with the cover papers from Pashmina. I made a similar one a year or two back, and discovered some more of these lovely papers in my stash last week - and had to make another album. I don't have the other one as I gave it as a present.
I put one of my spirit-dolls onto the front. These albums are fun to make, so I think I will try another one soon in a different paper.

Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
