Quick Mini Scrapbook

This is one of the fastest mini books I've made yet! It's the same construction as the Love book I made recently, so see my skewer book post for instructions. This one is portrait instead of landscape and measures 4.5x6.5 (inside pages are 4.25x6.25).

Some of the photos inside are collages made using Shutterfly Studio Software, so I was able to add lots of smiles in a little space.

I made this little book for my friend's birthday and she already had the Bella Flor Photo Box to match!
If you're a fellow fan of my beloved Bella Flor paper, be on the lookout for an upcoming bargain basement deal on this discontinued paper . . .

Now, help me decide. Leave me a comment and vote whether I should leave it sweet and simple along the binding or add ribbons . . . .

I just went and watched your tutorial on making the skewer mini albums and it was very well done. I will need to try one of these for our trip in the fall that we are taking with friends. It would be a great remembrance gift for them. Thanks for sharing these.

This is absolutely sweet and adorable......and what a fun gift!!! But I have to say (as I'm totally and helplessly addicted to embellishments!!) that ribbon would be waaaaaaaay cool!!! LOL

I love the book- and unlike everyone else, it appears, I would skip the ribbons. Looks great as it is!

Oh, how COOL is this? I have GOT to watch the tutorial for this - I love it!

Hmmm...ribbon or no? How 'bout make another and you can have one with ribbon and one without 'cuz I'd love BOTH of them! ;-)
