Matchbook Mini Tutorial

Hey there scrappy friends!
It's my day to post the Got Talent challenge over on the My Scraps & More message board. This is the second week, so there is lots of time to play along yet! There will be a new challenge posted every Friday through the summer.
My challenge is to create a layout and add a mini album on it.
It's been awhile since I made a matchbook mini album. I love them! They are a perfect way to add lots of photos to one page.
Here is my layout using Amy Tangerine Plus One and Bella Blvd. Enamel DooDads and a fussy cut camera:

The tutorial to make a matchbook mini album for wallet sized photos:
Cut a piece of cardstock 6 1/4"x 3 1/2"
Score at 2 5/16", 2 7/16" and 5 5/16". It should look like this:
Use eyelet setter and create 2 small holes on the bottom of the matchbook flap. I believe mine are 1/8". I put them at 1 5/16" and 2 3/16". You can add eyelets here, but it's not necessary.

Add patterned paper to front flap and stitch if desired. add a ribbon through the two holes and tie. Add photos. I added 10 and staple on both sides of eyelets.

adhere to your layout.
Here is a close up of mine:
