Mini wallet album - fast and great for gifts!


Happy Sunday everyone! I've been having some fun working a little project that would be quick and easy, and make a great gift for co-workers or friends. It's a mini wallet album that holds no less than 13 journal tags or photo mattes and uses one sheet of 12X12 paper to make the wallet. Super simple!

I learned how to make this by watching a video from Stephanie (With a Grin) on You Tube. She did a fabulous job of showing off just how pretty you can make these, so I decided to give it a shot. I created the wallet using supplies from the Scrap'n with Flair September kit  which features Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary, and a few extras I had in my stash. This mini looks gorgeous using simple pieces of paper, tags and stickers.

The mini wallet album closed up using some ribbon for a closure

The front holds 3 tags for journaling or photos

Behind the tags is a larger tag for photos or journaling
When you open up the wallet, you find two pretty pages
One with a pretty little tag
And a larger journal tag with photo matte on back sitting in a pocket behind
And the other pretty page with its journal tag and photo matte
Inside the side pouch are two pretty photo mattes/journal tags
And in the other side pouch are also two pretty tags for photos or journaling
The back of the wallet has a place for three pretty tags
One of the pretty tags in the back pocket


I can see that making these mini wallet albums could end up being quite addicting. You should definitely try it out!
