This may be hard to explain so please bare with me. I want to create a small photo album for my boyfrined. but i'm not sure how to go about doing this. I have a twelve double sided slot things from an old album and they are all connected. All it really needs is a cover/back cover. so what i'm asking is what kind of material should i use to make the cover? it has to be something strong enough to be a book cover. Any ideas?

ummm hard sturdy card (board) is all i can think of....

i think i get wat u mean.. like the insides pages of wat was before a photo album....

just get like a chunk of cardboard and size it up... cover/decorate it....

unless this is not what ur talking about.. i that case... disregard this.... lol

Some chipboard might work best - you can get it at art supply stores or dismantle an old 3-ring binder.  Cover it with fabric or paper or whatever, and voila!

that is exactly what i mean! thank you! i have another question.. How do you recomend it put fabric on it? i can't sew worth a darn..so i was thinking staples. It's going to have foam on the cover to make it soft and pretty.    Huh

Hmm....staples may work, but may pull out too.  Maybe double-sided tape?  There's some pretty strong stuff called Tacky Tape for scrapbooking - it's even acid-free.  Or you could run the fabric through a Xyron machine, depending on how big it is.  That would put a sticky backing over the whole piece of fabric.  If you want to mess with glue, Aleene's Tacky Glue would do the trick.  Now you just have to post pictures when it's done!
