Fast Mini Album

This album went together in under an hour.  I used CTMH's "Flirty" papers and coordinating compliments.  If you want to put together a project quickly, using pre-coordinated paper and embellishments makes it super easy--everything will match. 
Here are the inside pages: very simple.
I'll probably give this as a gift, so I left the theme simple.  The title on the cover is "The Story of Today," and the inside pages say simply, "family," "home," and "happiness" so the book would work for baby girls, anniversaries, newlyweds, or just everyday happenings.
Each of the four pages has a tag insert for pictures or journaling.  This picture shows three of the four tags out of their pockets.
And why does this mini album go together so quickly?  Because here are the key supplies:
Ordinary No. 3 coin envelopes make up the pages, and the tags are classic shipping tags.  Both of these are fairly cheap at the office supply store. And,
I learned the tags fit perfectly inside the coin envelopes.  I bound the edge with my Zutter Bind-it-All.  The album is so small (about 2.5" tall) that I was able to use one of my "scrap" pieces of binding wire edge--I knew I was keeping those scraps for something.
