How to Add a Folding Photo Album to a Pocket Watch or Locket

By on Saturday, March 17, 2012 2 Comments

We've all seen folding picture post cards. You know, those that open up like an accordion. Well, here is a really nifty tutorial which uses the idea but for a pocket watch shell or even locket.


The original tutorial by Destri, the founding blogger over at The Mother Huddle makes use of  the shell of a pocket watch. The idea is to be able to attach it to a purse or a key chain. A pretty locket version will also do nicely for a necklace design. Destri also suggests old makeup compact cases.

What's also clever about this tutorial is the recycling of the pocket watch shell after the innards of the watch is used for steampunk designs!
