Creating a Design on Your Album Cover

Today I saw a great piece on the Scrapbooking show on the DIY network -- how to create a design on the Cover of your album.

I've always wanted to add some pizzazz to my album covers, but how to do it in a way that will be durable over time? Since album covers are designed to be durable, how can I add elements to it and ensure that they will stay in place?

The guest was Joy Macdonnell from EK Success. The complete instructions can be found in PDF format here: http://images.scrippsweb.com/DIY/2005/09/28/scb515Macdonnell.pdf"

First, Joy created a page that was smaller than a normal scrapbook page for that album. She then put the smaller scrapbook page into a regular sized protector. She then used a sewing machine to sew around the edges of the scrapbook page to adhere the protector to the page. This will then create a more durable cover for the embellished album cover. She then cut off the remaining extra page protector and removed it. Then, she took the cover off of the album and attached the page to the album at the spine. The right hand side of the embellished cover was only adhered with a strap she created, but I would recommend adhering it somehow to the inside front album cover.
