Do You Know How To Weave?

Well of course you remember doing this simple basket weave with paper when you were little?

I just decided to do a  project with ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course.
I finished a mini album and wanted a special cover to make it pretty.
 Isn't this so soft and delicate looking?
I used the following ribbons

 After weaving and fitting to the cover I adorned with a yummy double bow I made with my favorite

Loved accenting with those pearls and one small and sparkly flower.
Here is an angled view of the accordion album.
 Here is a close up of the double matted pages. Those images were some red rubber images I got as a gift from my friend Steph.
This is the backside view
This would be the front side view.
I have had this mini chipboard accordion album in my stash forever-loved making this easy project with a little of my favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks for your visit today.
