Give That Girl A Michelin Star!!- Outlawz-Sarcasm Month


It is the dream of every chef to earn a Michelin star for his restaurant!  Well JJ has figured out how to fast track that process!   This wonderful image is by Bugaboo and I thought it would be perfect for my first ever Mini Album!  Over at The Outlawz, our Monday Greetings Challenge pays hommage to National Sarcasm Month.  Our challenge to you is: Use a Sarcastic Sentiment.  My sentiment may be more irony than sarcasm, but it does have a funny bite to it!

This mini album was made using regular #10 business envelopes
The image is by Bugaboo Stamps

Section One
Although the album appears small, there are lots of pockets for tags (this album is a recipe holder) photos, labels and embellishments.  I used four envelopes for this album, but you can use as many envelopes as you need!
Section 2
Double-sided paper works best, and it is a good idea to use all the papers from one paper stack.  Also it is helpful to have two stacks. I have paper left over from my stacks, but they will be used to when I decorate these interior pages.

Section Three
I used the MS Half Daisy punch to decorate the pocket cover (right) and the photo flap (L)
 Section 4
If you have scraps with coordinating colors, this is a great way to use those scraps!  Even though I had not punched the thumb slot in the back cover when this photo was taken, the back cover is also a recipe holder.  These are so much fun to make and decorate.  I can wait to finish this one!

4 Envelopes
Isn't it amazing what one can do with four little envelopes.  These will make wonderful  Gifts!

The back of your project will look like an accordion.  I plan to post a tutorial for this.

I hope you will try this fun project.  Stop by The Outlawz and checkout the wonderful project created by my teammates!

I plan to enter this project in the following challenges:
