Wallet Size Photo Mini Album


I love this cute little Mini!  I made it to house all of the school photos I get every year. I have a ton of those wallet size photos and thought I could put them in here and drop it in my purse!  I used a tutorial I found here.  This tutorial is very easy to follow and this mini is super fast to make.  The BEST part is that it is 100% UIU!!  UIU stands for Use It Up, meaning, use up your stash.  Use up all that stash you have been hoarding for YEARS!!  That's exactly what I have done with this mini.
It has a wrapped chipboard cover and I used the 6x6" Die Cuts with a View Tattered Time paper pad.  I have had this paper FOREVER and didn't use it because I don't make many masculine projects.  But I love the paper!  some of them are embossed and really shiny.
I used Stampin' Up cardstock and Stampin' Up buttons from my stash as well.  The Hemp Twine I have had for years!  I used a bottle cap, a 1" circle punch, an alphabet sticker, my crop-o-dile, and glossy accents for the charm on the side.  I used washers from the hardware store on the spine as well as all of the pages.  I glued them on with E6000 glue.  I used black velcro from Michael's on the closure.
 



 The pewter finish brads on the inside covers are from Stampin' Up.




Thanks for stopping by today!!!  Hope you are having a lovely April!
