I'm so excited to share my first attempt at a mini book with you! I've admired these cute small scrapbooks for years now, but this is my first attempt at my own.
Saturday Crafternoon: My First Mini Album!
This mini book's theme is all about Birdie, my boyfriend's adorable little 5 month old Boxer baby
I started with my manilla folders. They make great bases for all kinds of craft projects...i try to use them in the place of cardstock...so i cut out my mini book pages from the folders:
Next, I printed out pics of Little Miss Birdie =)
Then i started building my pages. Since i'm kinda new to scrapbooking, i kept this first book simple, using just pictures and stickers to embellish. Here's how i did my cover:
I used these smaller chipboard letters to trace out "Birdie Love" on dog patterned scrapbook paper:
...and here is how my other pages turned out!!
