Today's post is a summer themed project--I just had to get one more in there before summer ended! I used the fabulous 'Sea Maiden' collection to make a seashell shaped mini album. Lately, in addition to being on a mini album kick--I'm into 'shaped' mini albums. I'm trying to make minis that are not the traditional square or rectangle shape.
Since this was a summer project & the paper was sea themed, I went with a seashell shaped album. Mini measures 4 1/4" inches high by 4 1/2" inches wide.
Mini can stand since it has a chipboard spine measuring approximately 2" inches. Therefore, this little album can be displayed on any shelf or desk. I had it sitting in my living room shelf for a few days & it added a really unique & decorative touch to my bookcase. :-)
It's held closed with a gold clip. I attached a gold starfish charm to the gold clip.
The mini has six pages. Every other page is a pocket page that can store journaling, photos & other small memorabilia.
To create the pages I've used the Seashell Card die from Honey Bee Stamps. The die is for making seashell shaped cards. I cut the base of the card apart & used both the front & back of the card as a page for my mini album. In other words with one seashell card, I would get two pages for my mini.
I then attached each page to the spine of the mini with small paper hinges. Each hinge has a 3/8" inch gusset which left enough room to give the pages in my album some dimension.
There are also three 3" x 2" inch journaling tags. Each tag is decorated on one side with a seahorse.
Below is a brief video showcasing the mini. I hope this project inspires some of you to give shaped mini albums a try. It adds a whole new unique twist to creating mini albums!
