This week I shared how you can make a simple mini album. This is a great beginner album for those of you who are just wanting to venture into making mini albums. I have made several mini albums and I love it. It’s so fun to make something special for someone that they can have as a keepsake for years to come. This album is also a great option if you want to make several “blank” ones and just finish up later with the paper and embellishments to fit the occasion. I hope you give it a try. Let me know how you do, tag me on Instagram or Facebook, I would love to see your creations!
