“Big things often have small beginnings” Mini Album

I really enjoy making Mini Albums and  6″ x  6″ is my size of choice.  Clear Scraps 6″ x 6″ Chipboard Album is a great place to start.  I love how sturdy the pages are and that the edges are already distressed for me.

Clear Scraps 6 x 6 purple album

My album was made using the regular  6″ x 6″ chipboard album.

When I make my mini albums I like to trim around my pages with an exacto knife and then sand the edges for a smooth finish.  A standard 1/4″ office hole punch works to punch out the holes once you’ve covered them up with the scrapbook paper.

The paper used on this album is Kaisercraft’s Violet Crush Collection.  The flower on the front is from Petaloo.

Round Clear Tag works wonderful as an added embellishment.  I glued  left over scrapbook paper to the tag and went around the edges with a Silver Leaf pen.  I easily punched a hole on the top of the album to tie on the tag.
