Fairy Mini Album


Fairy Album

How cute is this little Fairy Album?!?!?!  I have had this base album for quite some time, it's from Graphic 45. It's TINY! Like the cover is only 4x5 tiny! I've been trying to decide what to do with it and I decided I would use it to make a photo album for my princess. She is currently with us for 2 weeks for Mimi's Summer Camp 2021. We are having a great time!


Designer Crafts Cnnection

Over at Designer Crafts Connection we all received an amazing assortment of of product from Gwen Studios ribbons. Y'all know I am a ribbon crazy crafter and I was so excited to get that box! Their products are available at Wal-Mart so be sure to check them out next time you are there. 


Ribbon Pile

I pulled a variety of ribbons from the assortment and cut multiple pieces from each roll to 6 inches long. Trim the ends of the ribbons- I alternated between a notch and straight cut on a slant. Seal the ribbon ends to prevent fraying if that bothers you. 

Layer the ribbons, alternating styles, widths, and textures. I like to just put the in a pile where the cross somewhere near the middle. I - LOVE- pom pom trim! I always add a piece or two at the top of the pile.


Cut a narrow piece of ribbon about 10" long and tie all the ribbons together tightly. I like the knot to the back of the pile, but the front is good too. 

I used a low temp glue gun to adhere the ribbon bundle to the spine of the mini album. It's placed a little off center towards the top of the album  so the bottom of the bundle sits just about even with the bottom of the album. 

This is one of my very favorite ways to dress up the spine of a mini album. There are so many possibilities with this technique. I hope you give it a try! 

Be sure to hop over to the Designer Crafts Connection blog and check out
