Day to day pocket mini album for Papier - with quick tutorial

Hi there! It's Wednesday and my turn to post at Papier. Inspired by the February DT kit that I received recently, I did this 'Day to day pocket mini album', which is very handy and certainly a carry along items in your handbags. This idea really came out of the blue and I just worked on the idea as I went along making this. Pure fun! 

 This pocket mini album has a slot on each page with a special tag inserted in each. You can write daily reminders or your favourite daily quotes or even things to accomplish each day for the rest of the week! And the best thing is, you can just slip it in your handbags and you are ready to go!
 See the tag below, which is for the Sunday slot.
A bit on how-to do this pocket mini album:
1) Cut out a piece of 9 x 3" of pp and fold in the middle
2) Cut out a piece of 4 x 1" pp. Fold it on the shorter side into half
3) Cut out a piece of 1x1.5" pp. Fold it on the shorter side into half
Attach the no.2 piece to the bottom of the pp no.1 done earlier. Secure it with glue. Do the same with no.2 onto the side of pp no.1 and secure with glue. Use a punch to poke 2 holes on the side of pp. no 1.
Now you can start putting in your embellies as you like!  Easy peasy lemon squeasy
