Tutorial Tuesdays

I am wild about mini albums.  I love to scrapbook but often struggle to come up with creative layouts, etc.  I have gotten into mini albums, they're awesome because they set the theme for you and are on a much smaller scale.  They also make FABULOUS gifts. 

I thought today's tutorials could be all about my favorite mini album styles.  There are infinite ideas out there, but here are some of my faves.

An inexpensive and simple mini album - toilet paper roll mini album.

A gorgeous tri fold mini album (which can also be an elaborate card) - note it's a video tutorial.  To see a sample of the finished product go here.

Exploding Box mini album tutorial - I just adore this and think it would be such a fun gift!

This is an adorable mini album using coaster.
I have never tried this particular style of a coaster album, but I did make a simple coaster album for Timmy which you can take a look at here (I included a tutorial of how to make my own coaster album in that link).  I didn't add any photos to mine, but of course you can :)

Do you have a specific style of mini albums that you just love making? Share a link to it in the comments below!
