"Let Freedom Ring" Mini-Album

Disclosure: As a member of the Deflecto Crafts design team, I received the Deflecto products for free in exchange for my design ideas. 

The July 4th holiday may be over, but now you have to get all of the photos that you took at the cookouts, parades, and fireworks displays scrapped! Why not create a mini-album using Deflecto flexible pouches and pear clips?


  • White and blue cardstock
  • patterned paper in patriotic colors 
  • July 4th-themed stickers (I used American Crafts stickers)
  • Buttons Galore Patriotic Mix buttons
  • tape runner
  • adhesive dots
  • adhesive foam squares
  • scissors
  • paper trimmer
  • ribbon
  • Deflecto large flexible pouches 
  • Deflecto pear clip
How to:
  1. Using a paper trimmer, cut 5 pieces of white cardstock to 5" x 7".
  2. Using patterned paper and blue cardstock, create layouts on both the front and back of each piece of white cardstock. 
  3. Embellish each page with stickers and buttons. Use foam squares to "pop up' some of the stickers to give your page dimension. Attach buttons using adhesive dots.
  4. Once all pages have been completed, place each page into the pouches.
  5. Use a pear clip as a ring to hold the pouches together in an album.
  6. Cut 6" lengths of ribbon. Tie around the pear clip. 

Now you have a simple mini-album that you can easily carry to show off those favorite holiday moments!
