The base of my mini are Papertrey Ink Coasters. As soon as I got my package of coasters I knew I wanted to make a mini!! I knew they would be great for die cutting shapes, but I thought they'd be the perfect size for a project like this!!
I covered the individual coasters with patterned paper from the Paper Doll line by The Girls' Paperie. I trimmed off any excess and around the corners. Then I sanded the edges to make everything nice and smooth. I punched all my binding holes next, with my Bind-It-All. Then I went to town decorating each page and adding photos. I decided to use the professional photos my sister had sent me from time to time as her kids have grown. I wanted to get those pics out of frames, and since they had a family photo taken this past Christmas, I thought that photo would be a great way to end this mini book.
Some un-traditional crafty goodness: Crepe Paper!!
