This is a small 4x6” Garden Journal mini album intended to pass on garden memories, pressed flowers, and/or seeds. The idea for this popped into my head when I was thinking about my grandmother’s beautiful garden and wishing that I had some heirloom seeds of the plants that she grew in her garden. I posted a similar ATC sized mini album with tags about a week ago.
I used a Graphic 45 Staples Collection book box and decorated it with Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe papers, lace from my stash, flowers from Wild orchid crafts, and blue glass vintage leaves. I used an image from the Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Collection under the glass cabachon as the focal point for the top of the box.
I put the mini album together with Scrapbook.com Heavy chipboard and papers from Floral Shoppe plus a few sheets of garden Godess papers. Each page has a flip out page and pockets made either with paper or glycine envelopes (perfect for storing pressed flowers or seeds). I made each page as a pocket that holds a large photo mat with a lace trimmed edge. The ribbon closure is attached. I used one single piece of satin ribbon that runs under the binding and facing papers.
