Mini scrapbook album

Supplies needed:
3 toilet paper cores
2 sheets of Stampin’ Up! designer paper
1 sheet of cardstock to match the designer paper for the tags
6 Stampin’ up! Jumbo eyelets
Stampin’ Up! Ribbon to match the designer paper
2 key rings that open, with hinge.

First I took the paper cores and smashed them flat, I then put them through the Big Shot to make them flatten out better.

Then measure the paper cores and cut your pieces of designer paper to wrap around the paper core, I used three different colors of designer paper, and covered each of the paper cores.

Then I punched the holes for the jumbo eyelets and set the eyelets.

Measure the opening of the flattened paper core, and cut three pieces of card stock, for the tags that fit into each paper care. Then attach a piece of ribbon to each tag.

Tie pieces of ribbon onto the key rings and thread key rings through the jumbo eyelets.

Add embellishments and pictures. These are really fun and easy :~)

This is the absolute craziest, cutest thing I've seen in a long time! And to think I toss several of these each week -- NO MORE! I think teens would love this! And we're going green!

This is great Jamie. I heard someone talking about a toilet paper album, but did not understand it. Thanks for sharing the instructions - so I'm assuming you did not cut this - but that it's a double thickness after you smash it.
