Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next week to bring you tons of Christmas/Winter themed inspiration using Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!
Authentique Paper Design Team member, Kay, has created an adorable Christmas themed mini album perfect for the holidays.
For my Petaloo & Authentique project I ended up making a Christmas themed mini album. All the flowers used to decorate my mini are by Petaloo & the paper collection used is Authentique's 'Retro Christmas' collection.
The cover measures 6" x 5" & I've attached a couple of jingle bells hanging from a chain to the spine of the mini.
This mini is sort of a hybrid version of the typical mini album seen nowadays. Instead of using a type of binding system to attach the pages of my album to the cover, I ended up used good ol' fashioned book rings.
The pages of the mini were created with a set of 10 A2 black envelopes & the inserts are the cards that came with the envelopes. The pages can be pulled out of the chipboard cover.
The pages of the mini are held inside the cover by inserting the last page of the mini (which is just a piece of 110 lbs black card stock matted with the designer paper) into a back pocket attached to the back cover.
This mini was a breakthrough for me b/c I found a way to use up many envelopes in one shot. I have an endless amount of envelopes in my stash--so I think I'll be making more of these mini's in the near future.
Petaloo flowers used: Regal Velvet Poinsettia - White, Burlap Poinsettias - Red, Pine Pick w/Cones & Berries, Briar Rose Canvas - Holiday Mix
