It's been a while since I've made a "Spoolie Album". Since I came up with this idea a few years ago... I still cant bring myself to throw away an empty ribbon spool. If you havent seen them before..this is a little mini album done inside an empty Ribbon spool. It was one of those "ah ha" ideas , that come to you .. when you stay up way to last working on things. lol It was back when I was on the DT at Scrapmuse (kit club). The idea.... when designing for a kit club.. of course,.. is to use ONLY what's in that months kit. Well that month we had ribbon on a very small spool. After using up the ribbon.. I was about ready to toss the the empty spool.. when I stopped .. and looked at it again. .. well.. now you know how this idea was born. lol
This album is done with a large spool, but really , about any size will work.
If you are interested in how to assemble these little albums , and seeing lots more samples done in many themes........along with other fun "round" ideas, you enjoy this book from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.
I used "Spring Joys" stickers and "Spring" Cotton Scraps. The papers are from the Pastel Paper Pad.
