Eileen Hull's Sizzix Book Binding - Movers and Shapers Magnetic Die

Today I'm sharing my third project using Eileen Hull's new Book Binding Movers and Shapers Magnetic Die.
They will be available for purchase in December.

I made a book to put Christmas photos in.  This measures 4" x 3" (not including the rings)
(Rings are purchased separately mine are from Me and My Big Ideas and I found them on line at Walmart.)
I got all the pieces gathered to make my little photo book -  I'm using vintage Christmas photos from the Idea-ology Merriment Paper Stash rather than real photos.  The patterned papers and tag on front are all from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Paper Pad. 
 The word 'moments' I used on the cover is die cut from the new Floral Arch and Words die set.
I adhered all the photos to die cut paper pages.  Here are all my pages and the two covers lined up in the order I wanted them.
Disclaimer:  Eileen sent me the die cut covers to make my book before the dies were available - so I used a notebook punch I had to punch the holes on the inside pages so there are more slots than the cover has - you would use the Eileen's die to cut your inner pages as well as the covers.
 I put them all together and pushed the Mini Discs into the slots.
Here is the first page, and a couple of inside pages.
The front again
 And the back cover.  
The matboard is so sturdy these little books will stand up on their own for display!
What kind of little book would you make??  You will find this fun new Book Binding die here!
Eileen will be showcasing all of the creations by the Creative Team using her all of her new Book Club Dies on her blog each week in November.

So cute! I love the idea of this being a good place to put wallet sized photos! You could do any theme. I am thinking a great teacher gift or baby shower gift, or even bridal shower...so many ideas! Thanks for sharing your work with us at the Mini Album Makers Challenge!
