DIY Mini Scrapbook

It's time: DIY time that is!  I know, it's been a hot minute since I've posted a DIY, but I have a few lined up.   This DIY is honestly one of my favorites, mini scrapbooks!! I'm actually surprised I've never made mini scrapbooks for the blog before because I make them all the time for friends and for my personal self.  With that being said, the one I made for the blog certainly isn't my favorite, but it is still fun. While abroad in Germany, I took lots of photos of my feet in different places to signify all the destinations I got to step foot in.  I decided for this scrapbook to compile all of those photos into one nice little booklet. 

So if you're like me and have some pictures you want to make a scrapbook with, this is the post for you!

Materials Needed:
Toilet Paper Roll
Paint
Scrapbook Paper
Small Pictures
Ribbon
Gift Tags
Decoration (optional)

1. First off, find all the pictures you want and shrink them down so that they all fit on one page.  They should probably be around 2 quarts worth in length.  But sizing can vary.  Once you get your pictures how you like them, print out the sheet and cut out the pictures.

2. Next, take your toilet paper rolls (or paper towel rolls and cut them into three parts if you're working with those) and paint both sides.  It took about 2 coats to fully cover mine.

3. Now, cut up the scrapbook paper to fit in the middle of the paper roll, then glue it down.
Make one of the pages your cover page!

4. Take your pictures and glue them where you want them to be in the booklet.  You can also write down phrases are comments.  If you have any decorations, such as stickers or flowers, you can add them!

5. Now, take a hole puncher, and punch two holes in every page.

6. Tie ribbon through every page using the holes you just punched.  This will act as the binding.

7. Finally, take your gift tags, and this is where you can either use them as extra pages or write little sayings on them. Insert them into the openings of the toilet paper rolls.
