Today I'm sharing a trash-to-treasure mini album idea.
My husband was going to trash his old business card holder,
but he gave it to me to see what I could do with it.
So I re-purposed it to a "Winter Business Card Mini Album"
I've used the Snow & Cocoa collection from Crate Paper and lots of adhesives
from Scrapbook Adhesives:
For the business card holder that I have, you can find ones online.
Mine includes 12 individual clear pages with three slots for cards on a page.
To begin, I cut enough base papers to fill each of the card slots.
I used the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill to attach two
(non-double-sided papers) back-to-back.
For the front cover of the binder, I wanted a good secure hold for the cover
paper so I chose the Adhesive Sheets 6 x12 inch for attaching my patterned paper.
Afterward, I decorated the front with die-cut elements using
the 3D Foam Circles White Mix. To create glittery snow drops, a combination
simply adding clear glitter on top.
The Extreme Double-Sided Tapes worked best for attaching
any of the embellishments to the top of the plastic.
I also used the Adhesive Dots Small for adding the buttons throughout the album.
Below are the remaining pages of the album:
Basically, I left one section available for a photo and filled the other 2/3 of the
I will think of this little mini as a place to store pieces for my planner,
stamps, gift cards, small photos, etc!
I love finding interesting things to create mini albums from...if you
have any ideas, please share :)
Have a great weekend!
