So, I’m on a mini-album kick and the Monthly Ribbon Club Assortments from Really Reasonable Ribbon are the PERFECT embellishment for your minis. You get a collection of ribbon in two widths that all work perfectly together, so there is no thinking needed! Just grab a coordinating paper pad and get to work.
I have another beach themed mini that I will share with you real soon that I made using the June Ribbon Club Assortment. Great for those beach vacation photos!

We have a big family picnic on the 4th of July weekend each year
, so I decided to make this mini album to hold some of the photos from this year. I had a 6 x 6 patriotic paper collection that has been collecting dust for several years and it worked great for this mini.
I am just starting to play around with minis, so I’m still working on page construction. Once I get things a little more organized in my head, I will share some tutorials for different types of pages and ribbon embellishment.
I made the pages on this album flip out, so it almost doubles the amount of space for photos. If you use all the pages and tags, you can put 7 photos on each page and still have room to journal on the backs. With 5 pages, that’s 35 photos you can easily add. Even more if you skip the writing and add photos to the backs of the pull out pieces as well.
I also strongly recommend Scor-Tape for mini album construction. I use it for many things including attaching the pages to the binding and the binding to the cover and it’s very strong and secure.
I love the flag design paper on the back cover and all the perky ribbons peeking out the top and sides. I even added a year medallion on the spine so we remember what year the photos are from. I fussy cut the design paper and you can see I got ‘4th of July’ showing on the bottom.
