Today I have a very quick mini book that I made using the Artiste cartridge. I have never even made a mini book before because it seems like a ridiculous amount of work, but this one was super quick and easy.
Included in the bundle is a sheet of coordinating chipboard. This stuff is so awesome! All you have to do is cut the paper the same size and adhere to the chipboard. Add a little bit of decoration and voila! I wanted this to be a super easy project, so for the decoration I used stickers that coordinate with the paper pack I used (here is the link for the stickers: http://melaniebrown.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=6524&CatalogID=1751). Seriously, this could not have been easier! Now you can dress this album up ever more if you like, by adding dimentional things to the cover like flowers or rosettes!
Here is the chipboard that I used:
I just popped out the chipboard and read the size on the packaging (that way I would know what size to cut the paper to fit). However, I made it even easier for you because here are the files:
