I came across this cute little round mini accordian cardstock in my stash - completely forgot I had it - an decided it was time to add decorative papers and embellishments:
The original accordian color is that salmon color you see on the page hinge above. It came with this tin an I added the pre-cut circle to the top. Originially the album fit perfectly inside, but with all the embellishments now the lid will not click in place, but will stay with a ribbon tied around it.
As you can see I used papers that are a combination of soft pink, light blue and a manila shade. I loved the papers for their variety of designs and graph like paper all mixed together. Each of the 12 sides is decorated differently using the papers, buttons, rhinestones and some clock faces.
Used Prima flowers, buttons, rhinestones, fussy cut the clocks from scrapbook paper and the background paper is one piece. Same with the center page, single piece of background paper an applied individual letter stickers for "remember" and flowers and rhinestones. Last page I used a word block and flower.
(oops, sorry just realized the pic is upside down, oh well...)
Here I used a a couple of little tags and a photo frame.
Last three pages, more flowers and rhinestones. This was an easy little project and very happy how it turned out! Creating a mini album does not have to be a daunting task, just enjoy yourself, start out with a nice little stash of items that go together and go from there.
Hope this weekend you find time to be creative!
