Make a Mini Album using your Cricut

I came up with this idea of using a few features on my Cricut to make a mini album!

The one I made here is for my Mom, on each page is a picture of my oldest son and her. I labeled the pictures with a number that corresponded with the age of my son at that time.
Supplies: PP, softie accents, chipboard shapes, B&W ribbon: KI Memories-Pop Culture; Numbers: Thickers; Cardstock: DCWV; other: ribbon, keyring, rhinestones, & thin cardboard.

Here are the instructions to make your very own mini album:

Step 1:

Use B & C to make the front cover of your album
I used the square shape, but you can use any shape you want..The heart for Valentines, the Snowflake for Winter, etc. I took a thin piece of cardboard (the kind you get when you buy a calender or a pack of paper) This will be used to give the cover and the pages strength so they don't bend.
Step 2:
Use A and D to make your pages and the back of your album.

Step 3:
Apply the thin cardboard to your pages and front cover, gluing it between the two pages.

Step 4:
Cover each page with PP and apply any embellishments you would like.

Step 5:

Assemble your album and to hold mine together I used a link from my key chain and attached some coordinating ribbons.

This was a fun project and very easy! I would love to see any of yours that you complete, SHARE anytime!!! Have fun ladies!

you should submit this to cricut! I think the award prizes weekly or monthly for great ideas! I get the e-mails, but never follow the rules/reg. The last few ideas stunk - this one is much much better!!

Good Luck!
