Is it REALLY a Camera?

Nope, it's a mini album! I got the directions from Laura Denison. I wanted to make something for my son. A regular mini album would simply not do. It had to be special and unique. He is a photography buff and this seems perfect for a guy.

A work in progress

There are photo mats inside the bellows.
Space for 4 photos in each of 8 mats for a total of 32 photos in the bellows portion.

The gears, key, etc are all Tim Holtz or Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby.
Constucted with cardstock and chip board.
The "glass" in the door is acetate with crackle medium applied to it.
Inside the back of the camera is a box for 7 photo mat folders that hold 4 each for a total of 28 photos.

The metal file tabs and film strip are Tim Holtz.
The map papers are from Hobby Lobby.
