So I have been on this Christmas plan making 5 cards a month until December so that I have 60 Christmas cards to send out onetime without rushing to get them done. So with Christmas on the brain I have also been thinking about gifts and mini albums. I had the idea to make a mini that looked like a tag that would hold tags for journaling and photos. And since I already had my Christmas papers out I chose to go with the it.
This album was made using Cereal Box chipboard for the front and back covers and 5 sheets of 11x17 white card stock (which I happen to have on hand) for the tag pages, inserts, and pulls. (You could also use 8.5x11 card stock; ask me for instructions) I took the 11x17 card stock, scored and folded it at 7"and then flipped it around and folded back the last 3" to create the bottom border pocket. Then I cut the whole thing at 6 1/2" wide. the remaining card stock I user for the tag insert and the pulls.
Here is my tag tag mini album.
*** Lots of photos coming***
I had such a great time making this album. My Christmas colors for 2012 were blue and white and i wanted to keep the album with those colors only but then I came across that red and the album insisted that I use it. So my hands were tied and you know what, the album was right! I love the pop of red in this album.
The tags and the pages will hold photo mats that will fit a full 4x6 photo. I think it turned our great. Thank you all for stopping by and I will see you next time for Mini album Monday.
