While cleaning and organizing my little scrapbook space, I came across this little scrapbook I made a few years ago from an altoid tin.
It was a really fun & easy project.
Just take an empty altoid tin and wash it.
Assemble some scraps of cardstock, some ribbon and whatever little embellishments you have and 2 punches.
For this project I used the Marcy Uchida circle punch (2 1/4 inch size, which fits perfectly into the tin) and an EK Success Flower Punch.
You also need a set of little pictures to go inside the scrapbook.
Walmart makes this easy with the various size miniature prints you can make under the ‘collage’ setting at their in-store photo kiosks.
You start by punching a circle out of cardstock to cover up the altoid label on your tin.
Embellish the circle with a punched flower, a brad and some ribbon as shown.
Or whatever other creative ideas you have. I am all about making a project your own!
Inside the tin is your ‘mini scrapbook’. Punch as many circles for the scrapbook as you like. I recommend around 6-7 circles.
Place an eyelet at the top of each circle page to provide a place to insert ribbon to tie the scrapbook pages together.
Then build each page however you like. On each page of my mini, I have included a picture, a punched flower and a button. I have inked the edges of the flowers and circles for a little added dimension.
Building the pages is your time to play.
Mix and match colors! Switch up embellishments!
This project makes a great little gift for Grandparents. Or a nice little purse-sized scrapbook.
It would also be a great birthday party craft.
You only needs some tins, cardstock scraps, a few punches and whatever else you have on hand for embellishments.
This is one of my favorite projects ever!
