Hello scrapbooking friends! Anya here today and I am so excited to share with you one of the easiest and cutest mini albums that you can create. For this mini album I used the “My Story” collection and made it in a shape of a tag. The best part is that to create a similar mini album you don't need any fancy tools or experience in scrapbooking.
First, I cut a bunch of 3.5 x 5” pieces from patterned paper. Next, using scissors I cut one top corner of the rectangle and used the cut off piece to cut the other corner. It gave me two symmetrical corners of the tag. Now I used this tag shaped piece as a template to cut the rest of the trimmed papers into tags. After that I repeated steps with white cardstock, enlarging rectangles by 1/8 on top and a side. To cut a perfectly fitting corners on the white pages, again I used the same template, but left a little white border to match white borders on other sides.
Now I was ready to pair up patterned papers and adhere them to white tag pages. All together I used twelve white pages, therefore needed 24 patterned paper overlays. It was easy to find a match, since all of the patterns in this collection coordinate so well with each other.
After assembling all of the pages, I punched a hole in each, and added them onto a ring. Now I decorated the pages with all the fun ephemera, stickers and more. For the cover, I completely covered the page with patterned paper, to make it sturdier and decorated the front with chipboard, foam stickers and brads.
Hope this fun but very simple project inspired you to create a tag shaped mini album and you will give it a try. Thank you for visiting Simple Stories and make sure to stop by again soon for more inspiration from other incredible designers!
