Hi everyone!
I've been wanting to try a mini scrapbook because I've seen so many that are really cute, but I don't know what they are made of. I don't know if you use the paper only and just bind it. Or glue the paper onto something so it wont rip. How do you make your mini album?
Thank you!

I've used chipboard albums but I've also made a mini album out of paper bags as well. You can youtube it and find all kinds of things!! Good luck!

I love to do paper bag albums (simple simple simple to put together),and folded card stock albums. Those are my 2 favs,,,,I also have done chipboard, but the fancier the shape, the harder it is to cover,,,,,toilet paper roll (yes, really) minis are fun, but tiny,,,cup sleeve minis, same issue,,,you can make a mini out of almost anything that's half the fun! I've got quite a few in my gallery,,,,I love minis!!!!!!

I love the Close to My Heart mini albums. I've made a pet one and one of my daughter's wedding. I also made them for my friends with patterned papers and spaces for them to add tiny photos. They come in white or craft paper covers with ribbon or jute ties. There's actually little page protectors in these books.

I made this one out of legal size envelopes.

Safari Mini Book By Hotroding Scrapbooker

I have others in my gallery. The mini fishing buddy book is made from another kind of envelopes. I have used the chipboard books that you buy and cover. I have made my own with cardstock and/or cardboard. I've even made my own letter books using Microsoft Word art and cardstock.

I agree that youtube.com is great for tutorials and ideas.

I have a whole website of mini scrapbook tutorials. http://www.making-mini-scrapbooks.com Tons of ideas from paper bag scrapbooks, to star books, to square around albums, to books made from recycled items.

I do the toilet paper roll ones too. I did one for my daughters 13th b-day and tucked inside each roll why she was so special to me.

I love the chipboard and baby bags too.

I love the paper bag album - super cute, and super easy to indiviualize (lol...it's a word) you can make it to the length you want, as many pages as you want. Have fun

I have made mini albums by covering my daughters old hard paged books with cardstock. It becomes a blank canvas for whatever you want the book to be. If you don't have a child the dollar stores usually have hard paged books there. They even come shaped not just square or rectangle...
