Christmas in July Gift Exchange

I was able to participate in Craftaholics Anonymous' Christmas in July Gift Exchange this year.  My 'giftee' told me that she's expecting a baby girl in August, so I decided to make her a Mini Envelope Accordion Album and some cards.  I had so much fun putting these together!!  Here's how they turned out:

I found the idea for the album HERE from Creations by Patti.

Here's a view from the side.

And the pages...

I couldn't give the album without making a cute box to put it in!!  Instructions for this can be found HERE.

Of course, the card box and cards had to match the album!!  I used THIS tutorial from Big Ideas From a Little Girl , only I didn't use the ribbon around the top.

Here's the inside of the box, with the cards and envelopes peeking through.

And the cards.  I made 5 with "Thanks" and 5 without.

I hope my 'giftee' will get some use out of these!!
