4" x 5" Accordion Mini Album (Lori Whitlock cut file)

Friday! Who's off of work today? We are trying to get all the flooring finished today before all of the Lewis Family comes over for a Christmas gathering tomorrow. What are you up to?

I made a mini album earlier this week that I'm excited to show you today. It's the 4" x 5" Accordion Mini by Lori Whitlock. You can get this file in the Sihouette Online Store. Make sure you add BOTH files to your shopping cart. One is just the outside and inside pages. The second file is the fold over cover and inside insert pages.

Here's my completed mini!

Pattern papers from DCWV "Fiesta Forever" stack
Stampin' Up Tulle (clearance section)
Flowers from stash
Martha Stewart double loop border punch
Magnet closure from the Royal Castle Shoppe

Each page has 2 tags - a white small one and a kraft larger one.
Tags from Miss Kate Cuttables "Tags & Backgrounds"

The Stampin' Up Tulle (clearance section) easily slipped around the binding.

Here's an example of what the pages look like.
I added a small strip of paper at the bottom and only adhered it on the sides and bottom for a tag pocket.
I thought at first I'd put the months on each page and write out birthdays on the tags for that month, but decided instead to leave it blank so the recipient can customize this the way they would like.

This project entered in Anything But A Card Ch (anything goes), Just Because Linky Party (anything goes), Use Your Stuff (ribbon), and Crafting By Design (new - new mini album cut file & new paper pack).

Thanks for stopping by today! HO HO HO :) Janis
