Mini Album To Share

Have you ever made one of these albums? Using toilet paper rolls?
I have seen so many people make these and have been saving all these rolls.
Come along and see the process of making some quick ones for gifts...
I started with using only four toilet paper rolls that were the same size, yes this is important that they all are the same. I kept these all smashed and held with large clips to keep them flat. I picked out several papers that I liked to cover the rolls. I covered all the rolls I wanted to use.
Next I decide how many holes I would punch to hold them together.
I decided that five would fit well in the hole spacing.
Next I pulled out the Zutter and made the spacing holes, and then set the o-wires through the holes and then closed them.
Here is a few examples of the albums I started, I love how the papers look on this size album.
