forever love mini album

I've been meaning to try and make a mini album for a long time, they are sooo cute! This is my first try, a mini mini album, measuring 5x5 cm (2x2").

 To make the cover more sturdy, I used cardboard and glued it to the back and front of the album.
A nice butterfly paper enhanced with ice stickles, three blue gems and a stamped sentiment made a pretty front.

 The album pages are made from two long strips of paper, scored and folded accordion style. Each fold also makes pockets for tags, all but one facing upwards.

 Flipping through the pages. Place for photos and journaling tags, plus a tiny pocket with an extra tag.

Tags, with a piece of stapled ribbon for handle.

Cutie "I love you"-tag and the forward facing tag.

There you have it! I'm hooked.... and already working on my next mini. :)

And of course, some neat challenges. You know I love them :)
