A SWEET Mini Album

 Hello, Loes here today to share a SWEET mini album!

This is a great little project to carry with you and share some of your favorite photos, or to give as a gift. It's made with one of our newest collections, "Sweetness.

This mini album is made with the Sweetness 6x6 bundle and one of the 12 x 12 enhancements papers.

You need two pieces chipboard cut to 3.5 x 4.5 inches
One piece 1 1/4 inch x 4.5 inch
For the envelops, I used a Sizzix die, and cut them out three times

Fold and glue the envelops but cut the right side open.
Make a notch wit ha circle punch.
I added a decorative piece of paper on the top of the envelopes. 

After that, add double sized tape only in the middle of the envelops and glue them together.

Take the two large chipboard pieces and glue them in the middle of a piece of 6x6 paper,I used double sided tape again. 
Cut the corners.

Fold the corners.

Cut a piece of paper 3 1/4 inch x 6 inch, and glue the smallest piece of chipboard to the middle. Take the two large pieces chipboard and glue them to the left and right of the smallest piece of chipboard. Make sure to leave 1/8 inch space between the chipboard pieces.

Cut the paper with the ice cream cart down to 5 3/4 inch x 4.5 inch and use glue to the back of the chipboard pieces. 

 Take you mini envelopes and glue them on the right side. Now the base of your mini is ready.

 Take a piece of the ribbon and tie it to the back of the mini album.

       Inside of the album, I used a little frame from the Components die cut sheet for a mini photo. 

 I have three photo's on the inside of the envelopes but there's space for lots more!
