Envelope Mini Album Class Reunion

I made this mini for my sister after we attended our class reunion and titled it after our home town. It's made using 9x6 mailing envelopes and bound using the Cinch machine. I decided to go with the Retro look to offset the black and white photos and found some of the papers at Michaels all from various designers and the rest came from my stash.

Each envelope holds a pull out...some with an additional pocket to hold extra photos.

 My parents operated the local diner next to "Brownies Garage". The Cricut Nifty Fifties cartridge I borrowed from my scrappy friend was themed perfectly for this and came in handy through-out this mini. Thanks, Deb.
I attached some purchased charms, a silver fork, healthy, wealthy and wise charms and a few beads to the Cinch rings along with some fun Shrinky Dink charms I made. I put pictures on the front and back of all the tags and used the McGill pull tabs punch for the tabs for each of them.

I found some recipe cards in my stash that I've had for a long time and thought they would work well here in this diner themed mini as tags.

We had a really nice time at our reunion and hopefully this album captures that along with precious memories from our youth.
