mini album from a cereal box.

I cut 4 pieces of the box all the same size, folded them in half and stuck the 2 horizontal sides down with thin dst. Then covered them with papers leaving the end open, and tucking the paper in to keep it neat. I made holes with the cropadile and added eyelets. Joined the pages with binding rings. Then I cut 4 tags slightly smaller than the pages and decorated them with papers to match the album pages. Again adding eyelets and ribbon to pull the tags in and out of the open end of the album pages. I am not very good at explaining and hope the pics show what I mean. I had seen some looroll albums and got the idea from that. I didn't have enough empty loo rolls to try one, but did have a cereal box. You can do them any size you like, as long as all your pages are the same and line up well.
