Drum rollllll please....I had fun putting together this full of LOVE Accordion File Folder Album. You can find the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers website. 




I stayed with traditional Valentine's Day colors pink, red, white, black. I used a combination of CTMH For Always(r) and Sweetheart (r) paper packets to decorate along with the coordinating Stickease. Too keep the album together I punched a slit using my SU word window punch and used CTMH Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (r).  I used the CTMH Artiste cricut cart to cut out the bow using cotton candy card stock. 


You end up with 4 panels with pockets to decorate after you fold the file folder. I put tags in each of the pockets. Again I used a lot of coordinating sticker embellishments to jazz up the pockets and tags. 



Here are the last 2 panels. I made a little banner using Black and white twine by cutting shapes out by hand and folding them over the twine. I used the Artiste cricut cart to cut out the "I <3 You" sentiment. On the tag I used CTMH washi tape (r) and wrote a nice love poem. The second tag I cut out pictures of us and pieced them together since the original picture was too wide for the tag. 


I love the finished product and I hope he likes it as well :-)


 Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!

Here is the line up just in case you get lost along the way...
