Imagine Happy Holidays Mini Album!

This week at Sweet Sassy Diva we were asked to make a mini book using which ever binding system you have (BIA,Cinch,Your Story) and since I don't have one (yet, on my Christmas list:). I was able to use a mini book held together with a ring to make my project.




Recipe
1 mini ring book (1$ at Target)
Christmas card stock (Christmas combo DCWV)
Jolly Holidays Cricut Lite
Post It craft paper (white/printable)
Christmas ribbon (1$ 4 pack at Target
Mixed Buttons
Star Embellishment from The Girls Paperie
Distress Ink "Walnut Stain"
White gel Pen
This was a fun project and so easy with the Post It paper. I started by covering the blank mini book with Christmas prints and then inking the edges for a more antiqued look I alternated red and brown stickles and also added the faux stitching along the edges.





I then used Jolly Holidays to print out all the sayings a characters for this book on White Post It craft paper.
Happy Holidays was cut @ 2 inches
The Elf and Santa was cut @ 2.5 inches
The Noel banner and the tree was cut @ 3 inches
The wreath was cut at 3.5 inches


After I layered all the images I was able to place them on each page, I added embellishments like buttons and gems.




Lastly, I tied ribbon around the ring and I really like the way it made the book look in the end. The back sides of each page were left blank. I will be adding Christmas pictures of my girls with Santa from the years past and give this to my mom as one of her Christmas gifts!
