Baby Fairy Flora - Baby TP Mini Album

An update from the 10/07/2013 - This project was chosen in the TOP3 @ The Crazy Challenge

Hello my dear!

Yesterday I came across an easy and wonderful tutorial on making mini album from toilet paper rolls. I was so inspired that just on the spot created a mini and I'm sharing it with you today. I can't describe how much fun I had making it. Easy, quick and cute!

I decided to use Mo Manning digi "Baby Fairy Flora".
The album has a magnetic closure. I've placed a little heart under the flap, and covered it with dry "clear rock candy" glitter:

There're two eyelets on the flap with a tied ribbon  & a plastic pacifier charm on it:

The mini's dimensions are as follows:
Length - 5".
Height- 3 1/4 "
Width - 1 3/4"

It has 6 pages. I decided not to embellish them at all (they are small and I wanted to leave enough space for the pictures). Each page has a tag inside. I thought  it would be nice to take a picture of the baby each month during it's first year and add to the album, so 6 pages should work just right :)

Here's the side view of it:

And here's how the pages look inside (including the tags):

More details:

The front and the back:

That's it. I really hope you like this mini as much as I do, and maybe I've inspired you to make one of your own :))

I want to enter this mini into these challenges:
