This is Brenda @mscraftprincess. I am here today with a mini album made from toilet paper roll holders. It is easy to make, and provides an opportunity to use some pretty paper from @maymaymade it and/ or you can stamp and color images, if desired. This album uses a hinge system. I made this a Fall themed album. These papers are fabulous. I hope you will give this project a try. Let’s get started!

4 toilet paper roll holders
Cut 4 pieces of dark brown cardstock at 4” x 2 ½”
Cut 8 pieces of patterned paper at 3 5/8” x 2 3/8”
Cut 4 pieces of patterned paper and 4 pieces of cardstock at 3 5/16” x 2 ¼”
Cut 2 chipboard pieces at 4 3/4” x 3. These are the covers for the mini album.
Cut 1 chipboard piece at 2 ½ “ x 3”. This is the spine for the mini album.
Cut 1 sheet of orange cardstock at 2 ¼ “ X 11”. This is the hinge for the mini album.
Cut 2 sheets of orange cardstock at 5 ½ “ x 11. They will be glued together to make the cover of the mini album.
--The first step for me was to spray the toilet paper roll holders with disinfectant spray. This just made me feel better about using the roll holders.
--Flatten the roll holders and distress the edges with distress ink. I used Vintage Photo.
--Take the 4 brown pieces of cardstock and score them at ½”. Burnish the score lines and glue the flaps to each toilet paper roll.
--Cut all of the chipboard pieces that will form the album cover.
--Glue them to the orange cardstock to form the cover of the album.
--Score the hinge piece as follows: 1 ½“, 2”, 2 ¾ “, 3 ½ “, 4”, 4 ¾ “, 5 ½ “, 6”, 6 ¾ “, 7 ½ “, 8”, 8 ¾”, 9 ½”.
--Fold the hinge piece on the ¾” lines. This will create 4 hinges that the roll holder “pages” will be glued to. Glue the hinge to the album.
--Glue all of the patterned paper to either side of each roll holder, including the flaps made with the brown cardstock.
--Cut the tags using dies or scissors. Place ribbon in the holes of the tags and slide them in the open end of each roll holder.
--There are wonderful stickers in the Photo Play paper and sticker pack, and I used them to embellish the pages of the album.
