Popsicle Mini-Album!

I saw a simliar mini-album a while back somewhere out in "Google Land" (don't remember where) and wanted to make my own in honor of summer-time!  For this mini-album, I used K&Company "Citronella" papers and coordinating cardstock.  I love how bright and cheery these papers are, perfect for a summer-time treat!

To make the popsicles, I use the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge and cut the top of the popsicle at 20" (came out MUCH smaller than this!) eight times from some Cheerios boxes.  Each album "page" is a combination of two cereal box popsicle cuts with a wooden popsicle stick glued between them.  There are four pages in all, from 8 cuts.  Then I cut the papers the same size, adhered them to the cereal box cuts (front and back) and inked the edges with white Staz-On ink.

I added wallet-size photo mats to each page and then embellished each page with cuts from the Create a Critter and Paisley cartridges.  A few of the cuts I used include a rainbow, beach ball, flowers and words/phrases.  Then I used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes in each page, added a ring and some matching ribbons!

Hope you like this mini-album!  Thanks for looking and have a creative day!  :)
