good times meander fold mini album

So, this is my second mini album. I'm having SO much fun making these, and it really is super easy so I recommend you to have a go at it too. :) I found a tutorial on Youtube some time ago (sadly I can't remember exactly what it was so I can't give credits, but just search for "meander mini album" and I'm sure you'll get there), and first I couldn't almost believe that it was possible to make a mini with all this space for photos and tags, using just a single sheet of 12x12 paper for the pages. Whoever came up with that idea in the beginning?? Awsome. :)
 A sneak peak at all the tags and flaps sticking out everywhere. For the cover, I tried on a design that I thought out along the way, but I'll show you a better picture of that further down.

 Lots and lots of pages. Each page is 3x3" (7.5x7.5 cm), for obvious reasons. My "photo" stamp has been very useful lately...

 The upward-facing tags. Instead of ribbons I used buttons that I thought fitted this layout better.

 Two of the pages have pockets that are open both up- and sideways. Normally, one side would be closed but I wanted to do something new and left it open. This allowed for a cute felt flower "handle" in the corner that turned out pretty nice. The punched circle in the center was spot on!

 My blooming tags. :) The first one has two felt flowers with a punched circle center, but for the second one I used a plastic flower with two circles on one side, and for the other a smaller nylon flower and a brad center.

 For one of the pockets I made a double-tag with a flap. The ball-fringe adds a cool touch, or so I thought. :)

Ok, this is a closeup of my "cover design" with the front, back and spine all in one piece. Most likely someone has already done this, but I actually haven't seen it anywhere around. I like this style much better than previous one I made (forever love mini album), it's looks more like a book this way.
For my next one (already in progress) I'll make the weak spots (i.e. the folds) stronger somehow. Maybe add tape...? I'll let you know! :)
