"Winter Park" 4x4 Mini Album

Happy Monday to you all. It's Carissa with another post. Almost all the supplies you need to make this adorable 4x4 mini you can find at the online store Pumpkin Spice. The prices and quality just can't be beat.

I made this super quick mini album using 3 standard size business envelopes. After sealing the envelopes I cut off the sides and scored them at different widths. Then I adhered them together using my trusted ATG gun.  I covered the pages and front and back of the mini with the beautiful Echo Park "Winter Park" paper.

Front of the mini album.
I used StazOn "Jet Black" ink to stamp snowflakes on the ribbon.

First page. Pictures to be added later.
You can see a journaling tag sticking out on the side. This album holds 4 journaling tags. The olive green crinkle ribbon is wrapped between each page and around the spine.

Middle page.
The envelopes were cut shorter in the middle so you can see the journaling tags better.

Last page.
Super easy and simple mini.

Here is the front of the mini.
You can see the journaling tags sticking out. And you can get a feel for the size of the mini with my hand holding it. Is that StazOn ink I see on my finger??

Back of the album.

All four tags.
There are journaling tags on the backs as well.
