Mini "Album in a Tin" for Father's Day

Hi Everyone 

Another quick project to share today as part of my Father's Day posts. I have already shown my Tag Box and Mini Magnets in a Tin.

I am re-using another old tobacco/cigarette tin (seen above) and this time it makes the perfect home for this little square album.

This album is made from a single sheet of 12 inch cardstock paper and makes a great keepsake. I used the Hunt and Gather "Watch" paper which has a wonderfully neutral background, perfect for showcasing some small black and white pictures of the kids. 

I love this little print from the paper pad which I have added to with a couple of stamps. The mini chipboard dragonfly is from Dusty Attic.

I love using black and white photos for mini albums as I feel the photos have a lovely simple feel to them - especially when you are printing them this small and they are mounted on quite a neutral background.

I have a few more handmade journals and albums to show using this range - but I wanted to focus on this little book which started out as a 79c notebook from the grocery store.

I covered  it in the "Fossick" patterned paper and used the sticker sheet, elements from the paper pad and rubons to decorate.

I stamped each page with a little My Minds Eye stamp I found in the discount section of The Warehouse (it took less than 2 minutes to do all the pages with Stayzon which dried pretty much instantly) which is all that is needed to turn this little 79c book into a fun little gift!

Please post a comment with any questions.
