Explore & Petaloo One Sheet Mini Album

Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you some amazing inspiration featuring our newest collections along with Petaloo Products! 

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Petaloo blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!

Today's project is a mini album that was created from just one sheet of 12"x12" inch card stock.  You gotta love these little mini wonders that can easily be put together in just an hour or two!

I've combined fabulous flowers by Petaloo in shades of red & blue along with Authentique's 'Explore' collection to create a travel themed mini.

Here's a close up of the flowers which coordinated perfectly with the colors from the 'Explore' collection.  I've also used ribbon from Petaloo's 'fancy trim' collection in blue/gray as the closure for the mini.

The mini measures 4" x 6" inches.  It has a couple of fold out pages & several areas to store photos and/or journaling.

The front folds out to reveal an inner pocket where I've tucked in a couple of life cards from the 'Explore' collection.

I've also used a bull dog clip to hold a small booklet & a tag.  The booklet measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" inches & can hold either photos our journaling.

The back fold out mimics the front & also consists of a pocket where I've tucked in a few more life cards from the collection.

In the center of the mini there are two pockets that holds tags measuring 3 3/4" x 2 1/2" inches.

I've also attached a couple of travel themed charms to the bull dog clip.

I hope you all enjoyed this little mini...enjoy the rest of the week!
