Coffee Filter Mini Album

Hello again!

I started this project last year and finally managed to finish it. It is a mini album made from coffee filters which are dressed and decorated with designer papers and chipboards for covers. I have even added tags in between the paged for added interest. Here is how it turned out.

Front cover decorated with die-cut paper flowers.


Lovely page spread including an interesting tag in between the pages.


Ditto. Love the ornate die from Prima Marketing.


Some close-up details.


Another spread with pocket and tags.


Butterfly and banner details in this page. Love the paper from Finnabair. Lovely colors.


Here I added a different shape to my middle tag using a different die-cut. So this is a versatile scrapbook with lots of possibilities. If you are interested in making a similar mini, here is how you do it.


1) I used the coffee filter packaging as templates for front and back chipboard covers.


2) The coffee filters were used as bases for the individual pages. I used 4 coffee filters. I drew the shape on designer paper, then cut and pasted them on each side of the filter.


3) I left the inside of each filter open for tags.

4) I used a coffee filter as a template for the tags inside the pockets but trimmed them by a 1/4 inch or 2 cms all around so that they fit.


5) I bound the mini album with a bind-it-all, but you can use your favorite binding system.

Good luck!
