Ever since Mary, on CardzTV, posted a video on making a mini album in an Altoids tin, I've been dying to try it. I thought this would make a cute little birthday gift for my mom. She can put pictures of her eight grandchildren in it and easily carry it in her purse to share with her friends.
For the sentiments on the lid and the inside cover, I used My Creative Time's "Mom You ROCK" stamp set. These two sentiments originally had the word "Moms" in them, but I covered that with scotch tape when I inked it up, and then I spelled out "GRANDMOTHERS," using the Simple Alphabet stamp set from Papertrey Ink.
There are twelve empty pages for pictures, by using the front and the back. To see how to make this mini album, visit CardzTV, to see Mary's video.
