Cover the inside leaf of the album with patterned paper and poke the holes through as with the front flaps.
Attach a photograph to the inside and add glitter to the edges. Decorate with the wooden flourishes, rhinestones and flowers. Add a button the centre of the large flower and attach a rhinestone in the centre of the button. Cover the exposed part of the button with glossy accents and sprinkle with glitter.
Decorate the painted sides of the two side flaps using patterned paper, rhinestones and flowers. Add the title using the thickers and decorate the centre of the flower in the same way as the large flower on the previous piece. Add journaling using a black pen.
