Modern Mini Accordian Scrapook Album/Tree Decoration

Last year I started a new family Christmas tradition for each of my boys. I usually buy them an ornament for the tree but to change it up I made them each a mini album ornament. You can see last years ornament here.

So this year, in keeping with tradition, I designed another ornament/album for my guys and will also be selling DIY ornament/album kits on my etsy shop. Here are some sample photos. The kit will include wire word hanger and heart charm. There is room for up to 10 photos. In my sample there are 9 spots for photos as the accordian has been glued to the box, but there are endless possibilities I have left the back of the accordian blank so I can journal on it. Box measures 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" (6 cm x 6 cm). After the box is cut it is embossed to give texture and dimention. (Mostly because I love the look of embossed paper)
Inside the box the accordian mini album total length measures 11 1/4 x 2 1/2" (28.5 cm x 5.8 cm) Each square of the accordian is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (5.8 cm x 5.8 cm).

I have left the back blank for journaling.
