Mini Albums using Gypsy Wanderings

I found this cut in Gypsy Wonderings. Push the Decor Tags button, then the Rabbit button, which is the second button on the fifth row. When I saw this I thought it would make a perfect mini album because it punches the holes for you. How great is that?  They were so easy to make, I ended up making three of them.

The album below was embossed with D'Vine Swirls and then I rubbed gold ink over it. I was not crazy about how it turned out, sooo....

On the album below, I used Core'dinations paper and I lightly sanded the surface to bring out the core color.  I like this album the best. I think it turned out really great.

Recipe for 1 album:

Cutting them at 4" wide will assure that the fit perfectly in an A2 embossing folder. So, all cuts are at 4" in width.

I cut 2 from dark brown Core'dinations papers.

I cut 10 others from various double sided paper I had in my stash.

The 2 outside cuts, I embossed with D'vine Swirls. I then sanded them lightly to bring out the core color.

I inked around all the pages with gold ink.

Stacked them together, the holes line up perfectly, and tied ribbons through the holes.

I punched a hole in the top right had corner and added some Prima flowers.

Very simple and quick to do. Hope you enjoy.
