Welcome to the second day of the April Showers Blog Hop. This was a two day hop so be sure to check out the projects we created yesterday if you didn't get a chance to view them. You should have arrived here from Karel's blog. If you are visiting my site, please stay and enjoy. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, you can do so by visiting our wonderful hostess Kathryn's blog.
For my project today, I decided to create a mini album. It is also known as a Maze Album. It is really easy and fun to create. The finished book will measure 3.25 by 3.25. One sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock is cut and folded to produce the album. Normally, I wouldn't add a mat, but the mats are made from patterned paper which is very thin and didn't add bulk to the book. I used 2 pieces of Chipboard to make the album covers.
I decided not to add too many embellishments on the album. If I had added a lot more embellishments, it would be very hard to keep the book closed. I created 4 tags that are tucked in the top of the album and they can be used for journaling.
