Happy Monday! I’ve been anxiously waiting to share this little mini album with you! I just love the October Bad Girls Couture Kit. Have you checked out their kits? They are fabulous! I was inspired by these colors and the kit has a few of these colors in a deeper hue. I added a touch of gold to make these colors pop!
I used the packaging from the 7gypsies tins as inserts for the mini book. This mini album is 3″x3″. I love making this size mini because it’s super easy and it works great for those of you who can’t seem to throw your scraps out. Hey, I am not picking on you… I am the same way!
I used gesso to adhere the fabric to the packaging to use as theand back of the mini book. I cut several pieces of patterns from the Prima Paper to use as inserts and photo mats for the mini.
Once the gesso was somewhat dry, I used scissors to cut the excess fabric from the edges.
And because I am always looking for ways to save trees and recycle… I cut the little words from the packaging to use as embellishments for the mini album.
I used my Bind-It-All to bind the pages together. I can’t remember the last time I used it. I finally dusted it off and put it to good use.
And here is the cover. Nothing too fancy… I wanted to keep it simple!
Remember, the next time you are about to throw those scraps away… you can maybe make a little mini book instead! They make great gifts.
