Mini Album from Party Favor Bag


Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I’m back from a cross country trip getting Army son and his wife settled into their new home. While we were away we visited a fun little resale shop that also had a closeout section… things that were deeply discounted. I found a set of favor bags for parties and I thought it would be so fun to create a base for a sweet little mini album.

I’m also using up papers from my stash and a fun and festive printable from my very own shop! Gotta love when all things come together : )

I’m alternating the blues and reds in different combinations for loads of variety.

The folded inserts tucked into the pockets gives us lots of room for adding finishing details like pictures and keepsakes.

There’s also full page sized flips for interactive fun.

I used the off cuts from this super mini dot patterned paper to create coordinating flowers for the cover. Want not waste not!

Won’t you join me for a tutorial?

  1. Ginny, I just purchased the 2 USA printables and have put the mini album on my to-do list. On the last $1.00 sheets you had, I hand cut all the scallops on the tags. Is there a die that you use or do you hand cut them? I have dies for both of the USA prints but they are either too large or too small. Any suggestions? Thanks, Rosemary
