Family Mini Album

Hello, ribbon-loving friends!  It's Karen Letchworth posting today; and as you may have noticed, I love making mini albums out of paper bags.  They're easy to make, a great way to showcase family photos on your coffee table, and make great little gifts.  This one was created  with the theme FAMILY in mind, and I used lots of great trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The cover of my album includes a felt flower with Natural Burlap String, and a length of Baker's Twine Diva Palos Verde Green Stripe.  I also tucked in a 30 mm Green Paper Mulberry Leave.
First, I covered all my paper bags/pages with patterned papers and embellished each page with coordinating stickers, stitching, journalling spots, etc.  It was so much fun adding in some of my favorite RRR twines.  To see ALL the pages of this mini album, you're welcome to visit my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, but I will only be displaying here those pages using Really Reasonable Ribbon products (just to keep my post here from being super long).  Below is Page 3, and it includes a journalling chipboard piece that's tied with Natural Burlap String and Cotton Candy Baker's Twine.
Next, I'm sharing Page 5 of my mini album.  There are several pages on the inside of my album that are smaller than the cover because I purposely used two smaller sized kraft envelopes.  Each little envelope has a flap so that you can tuck photos, journalling, etc. inside as keepsakes.
I'm sharing a close-up of this page to show you the sweet bow I made on the flap of this envelope.  I used my hole punch to create a place to add some trims.  I used two lengths of the beautiful Blueberry Baker's Twine (this color reminds me of a denim color.....super cute!), and a length of Solid Red Baker's Twine, as well as a small torn piece of the 2 1/2" Cotton Blend Ribbon.
Next, you will see Page 6 (above) which also has a small snippet (scrap) of the 2 1/2" Cotton Blend Ribbon.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has so many great trims in every different width, fabric, textures, design, color, etc.  You're always sure to find the PERFECT trim for any project.  What not treat yourself today and stock of on some of the basics (i.e. Natural Burlap String and Baker's Twine) in your craft room.  You're sure to LOVE everything RRR has to offer.
We also hope that you will stop back by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog often for more inspiration.  And don't forget that there is always a FUN CHALLENGE taking place where you can play along to showcase your ribbon and trim-adored projects.

Thanks for visiting, and we sure hope to see you again soon.
