It's a perfect alternative for when I don't want to use ribbon to keep my mini album closed. I also like that there are several Zutter Perfect Closures - Album Straps designs to choose from. Perfect Closures by Zutter will enhance and close your projects. It's easy to install . The leather straps are adjustable and secure easily and permanently. It comes with instructions on attaching it to your project. I like that you can tint the strap with your choice of ink or paint, distress the edges if I choose to and then stamp it with a design if I'm in the mood to. I just love these closures.
With a little imagination there's no telling what you can do with this product! Great for a strap to close a mini purse album or journal. My only regret was that it wasn't longer, yet, with the same thickness and width, you could use your own 'longer' piece of leather!
