Hello it’s Zinia here and today I want to share with you a Mini Album I created using the Oh My Heart collection.
Minis are always really fun to make. They can have many different uses and today I’m going to make a minibook from little envelopes filled with cute motivational tags.
I started with my tags just so I know what size envelopes I’m going to need. To create the tags, I used the WeR Memory Keepers Tag Punch. I cut 2×4″ strips of paper and punched them into cute mini tags. Once they were ready, I measured them and calculated an extra half inch of extra space to make sure they will still fit after I add my embellishments.
To assemble the envelopes, I stuck one of the short flaps inside the envelope to leave one edge open. To put them together in a mini album, I stitched them across the other short edge.
After the base was ready I went back to my tags to embellish them more. I added a few stickers and ephemera pieces on each tag using different color combinations for each one. Then I decided to extend the size of my tags a little bit. To do that I used some square scraps and popped them in the Tag punch again. This time, instead of folding the punched area to create a tag, I cut it in half and added one piece at the top and one piece at the bottom of each tag.
As a final touch, I added a chipboard sticker on the front of each envelope and put my tags in. Let’s flip through…
On the back of each tag I added some motivational messages to make someone’s day
