7 Gypsies "BOO at the Zoo" Mini :)

For the product showcase at Scrap Gal this month, we received
this little 7 Gypsies Matchbook mini album and...
a 7 Gypsies rubber band. Usually pretty useful for holding close those mini's that have a bunch of embellishments :) But the challenge for us was that it was to big for the matchbook mini. So we had to find a different way to use it. I have to admit I was a little stumped.
I knew that for the mini, I wanted to create a tiny album with some of our Boo at the Zoo photos with friends from a previous year. So I had fun making this little photo collage in Picasa! The pictures were pretty small and worked perfectly in the mini :)
I used all Little Yellow Bicycle for this one. The cover uses patterned paper, fabric borders and fabric oval embellishment which I inked around the edges.
On the inside, I covered the pages with patterned paper, my tiny photos and tiny alpha stickers my Making Memories. These are the front side of my pages...

and these are the back. I made an attempt to use my rubber band to stamp on a few of the pages, but I didn't really like the effect. It was a little to hard to manipulate. So I think I will just stick to using it to hold my super embellished mini's together!


  1. Great job on the FAB mini! Love it!!

  2. Great little mini, so cute. Becky x

  3. I love this mini. I'm a little confused by the challenge, though? Did they want you to use the rubberband in another way than what it was initially intended to be used for? I'm curious now to see if anyone was able to do that because I can't think of it.
    I'm glad you did what you did what you did because I like it this way. (Travel Turtle/Beriuqam)

  4. Very fun! Too bad the Rubber Band was too big.

  5. Such a cute little mini! I would be all thumbs with something this small.

  6. Oh so cute! I love the size. It's the perfect little mini! :)
