  Below is my latest project made from a vintage book.  I was antiquing at a local store and she had this book for almost nothing.  The insides were in bad shape and it was the perfect title for what I wanted to make.  
For a while I have been in the mood to make a mini baby album to be given as a gift to new parents.  I wanted it to hold those first and most precious pictures of the baby.  
How I made the album was to take out the pages of the book, they were falling out anyway.  I then put pink netting on the bottom.  My next move was to line the interior and add accordion-like sides so the book could be opened for the album to be inserted.  I then made the mini album and it fit perfectly inside.
Here are the photos of the project:

Cover of book.  Helen's Babies by John Habberton
The colors on the cover are carried out throughout the mini album.
The handles I made with beads and stiff wire.

Inside of book/purse.  The mini fits so snugly.
The sides are accordion so it will be easy to insert the album or anything you choose.

The mini.  Live your dreams!
