recycling a photo album refill/pages to make a mini album

I have found an album at a thrift store and thought of using it in a different way than it was supposed to. i used the refill of the album to match the mini folder binding that i was making. it serves as the base of my mini album pages/lay outs

what i did:

- i cut the refill to 7 1/2 x 5 1/4 (1 refill makes two of this)
- using my tim holtz binder ring (large size) i marked where the holes are to be punched
- then i punched two holes using my cropadile and i punched it 1/4 inch away from the edge of the page

i then i make the layouts for the pages. it was a bit challenging to make a layout cause it is small in size but it turned out so cute. below is a sample of one of the layouts i made

Layout: i used
dcwv grade school paper stack
prima flowers and bling
stamp for letters are from michaels $1 bin
recollection cardstocks for the mattes and other decorative strips
