We love mini albums! Today, we dedicate the blog to them. You will love these great ideas from Einat Kessler and Lena Astafeva!

First, Einat shares how the inspiration struck for this great washi tape mini album! The binding is an awesome idea!

"I have a confession to make… whenever I see any paper product I immediately start thinking how I can create a mini album out of it. Are you like that too? The minute I saw those beautiful Staples tags and envelopes I knew they’ll be part of a mini album. But I wanted a quick binding method so I can complete the mini album in one evening. I used Washi Tape to bind the envelopes and tags together and even create a few flaps.

Tip #1: Find what you need in the papers. I used cut leaves from the Time Flies paper for the flowers on the cover.

Tip #2: When you create a mini album use different sizes of pages to keep it interesting." ~Einat

Next, Lena shares a tag album perfect for those beach vacation pictures. We are in love with this great idea! Note how she uses bits of paint throughout. It adds so much interest!

"I made a mini album using the tags. My family and I love travelling to the sea. There we pick up different stones and paint them. My daughter likes swimming and my son likes diving. The sea is magic wonder of nature for us. " ~Lena
