"Isn't it great that Olde Curiosity Shoppe has been released again as a Deluxe Collector's Edition? I put together a really fun mini using the redesigned Staples Square Tag & Pocket Mini. I know you'll love the new mini; the design has been improved so that the pages will lay open.
Because this mini has so many pages (18, that's 36 pages counting front and back!) I kept the inside rather simple. The first thing I did was cut thirty-six 5.5" papers and then glued them all in the mini. For the pocket pages, I cut the 5.5" sheets to fit the pocket pages and mixed up the paper designs so that the pockets were a different paper than the corresponding back of the page. At this point, all the pages have a base that I can build on. After cutting all those 5.5" pieces I had a lot of strips leftover that I knew would work well as accents on the pages. I used those strips along with some fussy cut some elements, and some cardstock scraps, to embellish all the pages.
The mini also has hidden pockets that holds a square tag. I papered those and looped a twill ribbon through the grommet and tied it off with a bit of jute twine. I diecut some smaller tags and inserted those in the small pocket flaps.
I did a video walk through of my mini so you can see all the pages, there are way too many photos to post on the blog!!" ~Maggi
