Why not pop over to Megs Garden and have a look at the process
for my latest mini-album, hope you like it.
I first cut four pieces of corrugated cardboard into 5.5inch X 4.5 inch (or approx. 14cm X 11.5cm)
I then painted the edges and slightly onto the card itself with black acrylic paint for a better finish than plain brown card.
I chose a Stampi’ Up! paper to use on the opposite sides in the album to the gorgeous A Day in the Meadows vintage scene.
If you don’t have the smaller photos that were used in years gone by just print your own into a wallet size or the size you would like.
Choose your elements and then decorate as you wish. I’ve left most of the beautiful scenes to showcase the lovely paper but you could change to suit your own style.
I used the piece of leftover paper for a pocket on the back of my mini album and I included some metal corners to the front and back of the album.
Cut as many ribbons as you like and tie them around the ring binder for presentation as this mini would make a gorgeous gift.
