Mini album/tag book

Okay, so who knows what this mini album is made from? I bet Kelly does because she’s the one who told me about the idea in the first place.

I’ll admit I was sceptical. And I probably won’t make another one. But I’ll admit that it turned out much better than I had anticipated.

So what’s it made out of?

Toilet roll tubes. Three of ’em.

You squash them flat and cover them with patterned paper, then bind them however you choose.

Tags go inside, which you can decorate with photos or messages. Mine are blank because I never get round to finishing this sort of thing!

Get in touch quickly if you want some of this lovely Summer Picnic paper, by the way. It’s on the Last Chance list and only available while stocks last – gone forever at the end of September.
