THE PERFECT DAY mini album

The Perfect Day Mini Album | Monika Wright

Many of you will know how much I adore a cute mini album and by using just baker’s twine and some Project Cards from the Ruby Rock-It Carnival Queen collection, I was able to create a quick, colorful and fun mini album. 

LET'S GET STARTED

After gathering a selection of the project cards, I embellished the front cover a bit further with the 3D stickers, die-cuts and elements from the Pockets pack, specifically the stickers that are included...they are fun and super cute!

THE BINDING
To bind my pages together, I used one strand each of Solid Caribbean, Solid Blossom and Pink Shimmer baker’s twine and tied them into a knot to keep the mini book secure and then proceeded to tie a bow.

To form the binding, I trimmed my paper, scored it to form the book spine and slipped it over my Project Cards and then threaded my three strands of baker's twine through the holes. It's such an easy and fun way to bind an album!
