ok so people have been asking what you can do with the lovely MR tins once you are done with them. i have a zillion ideas running through my head but i thought the best thing to do is to SHOW you! you know i love my baby noah madly but i just realized that i didn't have any photos of him in my bag (shame on me!) so i decided to take one of our MR tins and create a mini album with it!

you know those 1.75" square journey tins that hold our lovely photo corners, ribbon slides, etc? well you can turn that into a mini album SO EASILY!!! here is the one i made:

all i did was to measure a strip of cardstock (about 6" long and slightly smaller in width than the tin) - then i scored them to form squares and i added some contact photo sheets i have had forever. a couple of MR rubons, some journaling and i was done in like 10 minutes. how easy and cool is that?

seriously, think of all those mini albums you can make with those tiny MR tins! drill some holes and add a key ring and you have a key chain! add a magnet and you have something for the fridge! add a pin and you have a walking mini album you can wear!

so i want to see you try something like this! show me what you do with our journey tins!
