Micro Mini Album Tutorial

My base for the micro mini that I created was using shipping tags (6 1/4 x 3) standard size.
I get mine at a local office supply store, really inexpensive.
 Step 1.     I scored shipping tag at top 1 inch, then flipped and scored at 3 1/2 inches (give or take-not all shipping tags measure the same).
 Step 2.    Distress inks I used was (Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy), this help give the vintage feel and old warm feel. giggle love that feeling...
 Step 3.    Fun stuff: Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist started out with Olive Vine & Brick, then added splashes of Coffee Shop!!!! you must try playing with glimmer it will cause the giggles to come out and show that inner does in me...
 Step 4.    I tore up some old scrabble dictionary pages inked them with Distress inks, Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy & Walnut Stain. This tip is from Marion Smith, be sure to check out her YouTube channel you will be amazed.
 Step 5.   Gluing, I used the best stuff Multi Medium Matte Glue by Claudine Hellmuth. if you haven't tried this glue it's a must have!!!!! It doesn't just glue it seals. Love that.
 There you have it a simple and fun way to create a mini with supplies and scraps laying around your scrapping table. Next are pics of every page in the mini, I junked my mini up so much it doesn't like to close so this will be such a nice Christmas decoration this year sitting on a shelf with Christmas lights twinkling off the pages...ohhhhhhh
