My very first mini album

Happy Monday all, I made my very first mini album....
This being teacher appreciation week I needed to make Courtney's teacher something.
I found this cool tutorial on you tube on how to make a pocket mini ,they are so easy to make.
What I like about it is 1 sheet of 12x12 paper makes 2 pages and lots of storage
I think it is almost a 6x6 album for the front & back I cut out chip board and made it a little bit larger than the pages used my big bite for the holes
With her only being in 1st grade I wanted to keep it simple and clean cut.
I used all primary colored card stock
DCWV school stack paper
1 1/2 in rings
red , black, white and yellow ribbon some pop dots
Cricut Carts used Plantin school book, locker talk,
For the front I cut the saying from the DCWV school paper stack added some star brads and an apple pop dotted, it opens and has 2 sheets of paper that I thought would be nice for Courtney to write her a little note

I added pull tabs to pull the tags out for pictures or what ever she chooses to use them for.

I didn't take a picture but all the tops of the pages are pockets also ( makes it nice to put pics or momentos in

And I noticed that I have a large P in computer don't know how that happened but it is

I doodled some math problems on the paper

Clean and simple I hope she likes it.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.




I hope to be posting more soon ....I have sooooooo much to get done!
