FRENCH KISS Mini Album | with Shellye

This sweet "French Kiss" Mini Album will have you saying "oooo la la!" 
On a recent trip to the Dollar Tree, I found a cute wall hanger.  This hanger included four heart-shaped chipboard pieces that were the perfect size for a mini album.  I cut it apart the strand of hearts and used them as the five base pages:

With one side of the chipboard heart already glittered, I simply added a few layers of stickers and die cuts.  To the plain back-side of the heart: I traced the shape onto patterned paper, trimmed out and then attached with craft glue. The chipboard is quite thick, so I was also able to adorn the edges with chunky twine!

After all of the pages were decorated, I assembled them by creating a hole in the top left corner of each page and then used a white shower hook to hold them together.  I love using these hooks for mini albums so that they can easily be hung from a hanger or knob!

I hope that you've enjoyed this little mini and will find some wonderful ways to repurpose fun finds on your next outing!

  1. Oh I love this!!! The shape is adorable and all the little details are perfect!

  2. Wow Shelley I am blown away by this idea! You are SO talented and creative! To take a decor piece from the $ tree and turn into a mini album is absolutely genius! I would have NEVER thought of this. The French Kiss Collection is beautiful and so perfect for a heart shaped album. Also a shower hook, so your album can hang and be displayed is also an amazing idea. I will definitely be making this, I want to go to the $ store now ;) Thank you sooo much for sharing this! I am so excited about this project
