I love making books - all kinds and all shapes. Here's one that I made from the cover of the G45 8X8 matchbook Box. The sturdiness of the box cover makes for a super durable album cover.
The pages of the album are sewn into the spine. And I cut a hole in the spine so I could see the lovely different patterns of the papers.
If you'd like to have fun building this book. Here's a tutorial that you might find helpful. :)
