6X8 Our Favorite Family Recipes Album Cover

I decided to make a small album for out Favorite Family Recipes, I wanted to keep the cover simple and not too bulky or covered with embellishments because this will in time be opened allot and well loved.

I was going to use thickers but couldn't find enough of the same letters in the same colors and didn't want to have to go out and buy any because I was in the mood to do it right now or I wont do it at all.

I found some thick plastic alpha letters that I had purchased a long time ago from Micheal's and Hobby Lobby and decided I should use them and I also figured I should organized them as well so I did both, made my cover and organized all my thick alpha letters.

 To make the album level I just used something from my desk and stuck it in the middle of the album and VIOLA it is level.

 I used a old paint brush and some Multi Matte Medium to adhere the letters, if you look closely after it dries you can see some of the glue but not much.

Only a crafter would notice.
And that's it, super simple and I let it dry for about an hour on another desk in my craft room.

I had this Iris case that was empty and decided to fill it up with all my Alpha's.

This can fit quite a few alphas, I believe there are at least 4 packages of them.
I do not believe Micheal's sells them any more but Hobby Lobby does have some available.
