This year, why not try and give a meaningful gift such as a mini album? Not only does a mini album make a great gift, it also can be appreciated by your loved ones because you took the time to make something from the heart! I usually give minis as Christmas gifts and this was a mini I gave to my grand-parents. I'm determine to do something different this year... maybe during the year I will learn to just do the minis throughout the year so I don't end up creating 5 mini albums in one month... Yep that's what I did during the first 3 weeks of December :) but it was well worth it.
Having said this, I wanted to take the time to share this album with you because you do not have to do a lot to make a mini album look attractive!
As you are creating your mini, don't forget about those fabulous tools you have on hand to help fill in spaces. Sometimes, a button is all you really need!
If you do decide to create a mini, Scrapbook Adhesive makes some fabulous adhesives to help speed your project along! Their Adhesive Sheets are great for adhering sheets of pattern paper onto your chipboard covers and their tape runner is great for holding down your paper embellishments or for adhering photos back to back throughout your mini album.
