First Day of School Mini Book!

Hi Everyone and welcome to Sweet Sassy Diva.  This week the challenge for
the Design team is to make a Back to School Project.  Back to School has
always been a big deal to me first because I loved school as a kid and both my
parents were teachers.  Then for 33 years I taught school so this time of
year I would be scrounging for supplies for my classroom.  Well now it
means I have been retired for one full year which is hard for me to believe.
 I still troll the Back to School aisles and ads looking for great deals on
crayons and folders.  Guess those habits are hard to break.  
So on to my project.  I decided to make a First Day of School Mini book.
 I used an accordian book from Bazil  ( www.bazill ) that I
got at my local scrapbook store on sale.  Here is a picture of the school
stack I had.  I have seen new school stacks at Michaels recently.
The folder opens up and each page is 4 x 6.  I made  2 x 4 pockets for
the tags.  Each tag was cut with design paper to place in a pocket.
 The wallet size pictures would fit on the front of the tag and the back
size is blank so that info about teacher, school, etc. could be added on each
The recipe for the cuts are at the bottom of the post.  

Here is the folder decorated and closed.  
Folder open and decorated.
