Hello girls! Lucia here today to share a tutorial about how to create a cute little mini album - and recycle at the same time! My mini is about my trip to Prague last week :-)
Here's what we're going to need:
/ hot glue gun, crop-a-dile and brads, two metal rings, sewing machine and the Citrus Twist Kits - I'm using the mix of April and May main and sprinkles kit - and we are going to use the cardstock and paper bags as a base for our mini album /
For the first time in my life, I wanted to make a mini where each page had different size - and it was so hard, lol. (i'm a bit of a perfectionist...). The mini album's cover is about 6.5'x4.5' and I cut it out of the craft cardstock that comes with every main kit. I covered it in the patterned paper from both sides:
Here are the paper bags that I'm going to use. To make the pages look more pretty and solid, I cut out two pieces of cardstock for each paper bag and glued it on to the both sizes of the bag.
I used only a school glue to position the papers and I sewed the upper and bottom edge later on to secure the paper. I didn't sew on the right side in order to get a little pocket for flaps :-)
I punched holes and the base is ready.
Now for the fun part - the embellishing! Here's my finished album. I used some of the pockets to insert little cards with journaling and some additional materials such as lace, fabric or tissue paper.
Have fun crafting! ♥
