Shaker Mini Album featuring Memorabilia by Yvonne Blair

Hi everyone!!! So excited to be here today and share this little mini album with you. 

It is one of my favorites I have made lately. 
This one is featuring Teresa's new Memorabilia line.  
I cannot even begin to tell you how MUCH I absolutely LOVE this line! 
It is gorgeous, and really I don't think pictures can do it justice, just wait till you see it in person. 
Okay, so let me stop babbling and tell you about this mini. 
First it actually has an easel on the back of it so it can sit on an end table or somewhere on display. 
I used a binder mechanism to bind it from the top. 
The first thing you will need to do is cut a piece of chipboard to 5 1/2 x 7 3/4.
Cover the front side with one of the Memorabilia papers. 
Attach the binder mechanism THEN cover the back of the chipboard. This will hide the brad backing.
I rounded the corners as well, but this needs to be done before the binder mechanism is attached. 

The front cover is using a piece of packaging. I am not sure what it was from as I save anything from packages that looks like it might work for something.  My front cover measures 4 3/4 x 6 1/2. 
I only used the packaging.  You will need to measure the part that will become a shaker and cut that dimension into your paper.  Then you will cut away the excess around the outer edges. This is when you put the sequins and whatever else you want to be visible in the shaker part.  Then simply cover the back side with a piece of decorative paper that measures the same size as the packaging. 
 The first page begins as a measurement of 9 x 4 3/4.  Fold it in half to become 4 1/2 x 4 3/4.
Only adhere the top and bottom edge. 
Leave the open edge of the so that it becomes a pocket. 
I stapled the Today embellishment on the side of the insert. 
 Page 2 is 5 x 5 1/2. 
 Page 3 is simply a cut out from the Memorabilia papers with some chipboard stars embellishments and die cut strip. 
 Page 4 is  4 3/4 x 12.  Score it at 6" and fold it up, then fold down the about 3/4" two times. 
Adhere the sides to create another pocket and embellish. 
 Page 5 is 5 x 5 1/2. Cut the bottom part to create a pennant look and embellish.

 Page 6 is 5 x 5 3/4.  Adhere one of the Memorabilia envelopes and a die cut glitter strip. 
I cut a 3 x 5 strip and folded that in half, adhered the lucky bingo card to the front and this created a little
book to add in the pocket. 
 The last page is 5 x 7 and cut in the shape of a pennant again. Simply embellish. 
I hope you enjoyed this mini.
