I've gotten really into making Mini scrapbooks in my spare time. Which is funny b/c it's something I never thought I would get into! For this one I simply cut cardboard, such as the type at the back of a big paper pad. Covered each side with paper. Punched small holes w/my crop a dile. Embellished & whalla! I made this book in about 30 mins. These are fun little gifts!
