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!
