Vintage Film Holder Mini Album by Shelley

Guestblogpost

Hello everyone! My name is Shelley Haganman and I love "junking" and scrapbooking! Antique and consignment stores are such great places to find unique items that you can transform into real treasures.  Today I am going to share with you a project combining both of my favorite hobbies  Recently I found this gorgeous vintage film holder that I immediately saw as a place to store a mini album:

I knew I wanted to include as many instagram photos that I took on our most recent Summer vacation, so making a mini accordian album was just the answer! And how cute would it look all tucked into this vintage piece?! I measured the inside of the film holder, which would house my mini album, and got to work cutting and assembling the base of my album.

Since I had so many pictures that I wanted to include, I designed my accordian album to expand up and down giving me plenty of space to fit all my photos. Now that the base of my album assembled it was time to add photos and embellishments. Once the album was finished to my liking, I merely folded it back into place and kept it snug inside the film holder using some baker's twine.

Finally, I decorated the cover and added a flair button with a magnet since the cover was metal and my project was complete. I love that I can set it on a table or a desk and pop it open and relive the incredible time we had on our vacation.

I hope this has inspired you to create a treasure out of something out of the ordinary. To make something old new again with your creative hand.
