Simple Mini Album from the October Kit


Hi it’s Kasia here πŸ™‚ Today I want to share with you a simple idea for a mini album base that will utilize the brown crdstock that reinforces your kits in a package. If you’re a person that doesn’t like to waste things and is up to some recycling this project is for you. You will need some simple things like:

scissors and/or cutting knife
self-adhesive hole reinforcements
cutting mat

I think the shape of a simple package tag became very popular and I wanted to make a simple mini album with it. To do so, I first draw lines on the cardstock with a pencil and ruler following the dimensions shown in the photo below.

Then I simply cut out everything using some knife and scissors and punched some holes.

Last thing was to glue on the hole reinforcements and add a binding ring.

Now when my base was ready I decorated it with some daily photos using only main October kit just to show you that there’s no need for many embellishments and papers to get a really nice effect πŸ™‚

Isn’t it simple? Hope you like this idea πŸ™‚ I think the brown pages are really perfect for some autumn albums, setting the mood and are a good background for colorful and warm fall photos. Plus if you make more of these tags you can decorate them and attach to some fall presents or maybe in a form of a greeting card? The choice is yours and possibilities are many πŸ™‚ Have fun creating!
