I think it's FALL! I love this time of year. It's COOL like in not  Hot.

I have mini book of a different kind for you today. It’s made from left over toilet tissue rolls.  You know, what you
have after the paper is gone. 

You can also use the rolls from wrapping paper.  You will use one roll for the front cover and one for the back.   The four that are left, you will need to punch out (on one side only) a half circle at one end.  This will make the four inside pages of the book a pocket page for tags that can be used for pictures or to journal on.  


All of the pages were covered with paper and distressed with ink.  All of the tags need to be cut down so the will slide easily in and out of the page pockets.   Some of the tags I covered one side with paper and some I just inked with distress.

When all the pages are finished ...just use the Bind-it-All to bind it together. You can buy the o-wire at Scraphappy and use the Bind-it-All there if you don't have one. Add pictures and you have a mini book made from scraps!
