I have been wanting to make a portfolio to display some of my previous work. We got this piece of rosewood from a garage sale just ‘thrown in’ with a larger purchase and I thought it would make the perfect album cover. I LOVE how it came out.
The album is made to fit standard 8×8 scrapbooking pages with the scrapbooking posts I purchased from my local Hobby Lobby. I finished the album with lemon oil and two coats of spray lacquer. The binding is from a leather jacket that I purchased from a thrift store for $5 and ripped up for leather strips.
I took the extra wood and made myself a matching earring and necklace set since I just can’t throw amazing wood like this away no matter how small.
