For the cover, I used a piece of the Lace border for the flap and one of the ATC Frames for the cover.
I have even used the negative of a frame on the backside of my mini and built an ornate looking piece. I added a metal finding on top and colored it the same bronze that I used for the chipboard. I adhered the ribbon underneath the negative piece. The top and bottom parts were pieces of the French Flourish Border. I cut away pieces of the chipboard to make it fit nicely. It all looks like 1 piece.
This is view of the mini opened up after it had been unfolded.
This view is of the inside of the mini opened up all of the way. I cut apart the Lace Border #4 to create the individual pieces for the pockets.
I created 6 pockets to hold pull out tags to adhere photos to. I used chipboard and topped each piece with patterned paper.
This is a view of the back of the mini opened up.
Close up of the mini closed and tied up nicely with a silk ribbon.
This is a closeup of the back of the album. That is the metal piece adhered over the negative of the ATC frame.
Here is a closeup of the top flap that ends up as the outside cover flap.
Here is the mini folded up with the flaps showing.
