Wondering how to make a Star Album ?? Here's How !!

Hello Friends....
It's me Riti Poddar once again...and I'm here with a Picture Tute on How to Make Your Own Star Album... Well I had made my first star album way back in 2005 & I'm here again with another Shabby Chic Album for you all !!
I had a blast making this for my Hubby...
You can use them as albums or as a decorative element as well. I had also made these in mini sizes & hung them on to my Christmas trees as ornaments.
Ok...enough of my blabbering.. take a look at the pictorial & you'll know what I'm talking about.

CAUTION :It's a Very Long post filled with sit back, grab your fav. Beverage/Snack & Enjoy !!
