Lay the album you have elected on the leg of the jeans. Incise the denim so that it covers the entire external surface of the album. Note that the seam of the leg falls on the center.
Use tacky glue to support the denim and until it dries off, protect it with clamps.
Place the album at the back of the jeans. The album must be open, with right side of it to wrong side of denim.
Mark along the contours and cut out an inch more than the marked one. After you're done with the cutting, glue them at both the sides.
Fold the extra denim into the inside covers.
Add a red ribbon on its edges. Insert the belt (a small one is good) through the loops and cut out the surplus belt.
