Tropical Travelogue Large Wallet Mini Album

It's Summer Lovin' time at My Sheri Crafts!  With the temperature being in the high 100s here where I'm at, I might as well stay indoors and make something that I love.  I ended up making a mini album using Graphic 45's Tropical Travelogue paper pack. I watched a video tutorial by amberdaze and made my own version.  Here are the measurements for the cardstock/designer paper:
1.) For the base, cut paper at 6 1/4"x 5 3/4"
Score lengthwise at 3/4" and 1 1/4"
2.) For the sides, cut paper at 6 1/4"x 6 1/2"-- cut two pieces
Score lengthwise at 3/4" and 1 1/4"
3.) For the inner pieces, cut paper at 6 1/4"x 6 1/2"-- cut two pieces
Score lengthwise at 3/4" and 1"
4.) Inner flap (I used it as an outer flap instead), cut paper at 6 1/4" x 12"
Score at 6 1/4" and 6 3/4"
Watch her video on how to assemble the paper to make the wallet mini album. :-)

In addition to the paper pa, I used sinamay (the mesh material from the Philippines), Tim Holtz tissue tape, abaca (a hemp from the Philippines) rope and Stickles.  I also added some images from Graphic 45's On The Boardwalk paper pack for the front two covers.  The edges were inked using CatsEye ink in brown.   The cardstock that I used is from Bazzill.  The flowers are from Prima, and I created the centers using Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  The pearl flourish is from ZVA creative.
