Create your own Tim Holtz Album and card closures.

I made this cool Gate Fold Mini Album for our next Craft & Crop craft project, and I needed a type of closure. The ones I saw when I researched were so expensive to purchase 12 of them. So I started Googling to find something less costly and found this cool YouTube video done by Kellie Colegrove. Thank you so much Kellie for taking the time to share this. It is great!

She starts out by taking a brad, and an eyelet.

Put the eyelet back wards over the prongs of your brad.


 Move it to up to the head of your brad. Make your hole in your card or album where you will want your latch to be and put the prongs through your hole.

 Open the prongs and flatten them apart.(sorry about the focus)

 Here is a picture of what it should look like.

 Another view

And another view. Hopefully you can get the idea. I hope you can find use for this. I was delighted. and will use it with more craft projects.
