CottageCutz Coin Mini Album

Greetings Friends and Papercrafters alike.  This project is a mini album.  Yes, you heard correctly.  A mini album made from a Quarter Coin Wrapper.  Isn't it cute!  Oh my gosh, it was so fun to make and was an idea born from wanting to give the bank teller I see everyday for work a little sumptin sumptin for Christmas.  She loved it! 
 Here you see it fanned out showing the pages.  I can picture making one a year and writing my Christmas memories on the tags.  If you get creative you can cut up your pictures and attach them inside as well.
The first page has a little tag behind the tree and deer.  The second page show the tag that was made to go inside the coin wrapper.  It's been stamped and embossed with white ink.  The little snowman is from the Homemade Christmas Gift Set.

The pretty snowflake holds a couple of tags.  The mittens are adorable and I cut the holly corner to fit as a backdrop for the snowflake.
The ice skates are my absolute favorite in this release.  They are just darling.  The "Joy" center on the snowflake is also from the Homemade Christmas Gift Set.
Thank you so much for viewing my Mini Album.  Have a Happy New Year.
