Mini Albums and Gifts with our Tag Album Staples!

  Tag Mini, Safari Adventures, Tutorial by Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (1)

There are incredible tutorials from Maggi Harding and Joanne Bain awaiting you today. These are all great ideas for the beginner crafter who wants to push themselves with some awesome ideas. You will adore these projects!

First, Maggi makes a mini album out of just a few items. You gotta love the Washi Tape binding technique. You will adore this great project using Safari Adventure!

"I am so loving the new Staples tags and policy envelopes!  They are just great for making fun little minis.  I made this one for a special friend to say thank you.  Best of all, you can assemble the basic mini in an hour.  Then you can keep it basic or go crazy with embellishments.

My list of supplies looks really lengthy, but that is because I used all scraps to decorate my pages.  For the blank mini, you need just two square tags, 2 sheets of cardstock or design paper for the inner pages, washi tape,  and a scrap of cardstock.

Tip: Save your scraps from your larger projects and then use the scraps to piece together minis, tags and cards.  Even little pieces have a place in these smaller projects!

My Snap guide will take you through the process of building the basic mini.  Then you can decorate your pages as you wish or follow along with the photos I've provided of each page." ~Maggi
