3 Ring Binder Mini Album using Mistletoe

I found the instructions to create this Mini Album on Tresa Black's Blog, then followed all 5 you tube videos to make the interactive pages including instructions on how to make the super cool "ruffled ribbon".  This is the link to her first video
I was SO excited to find that I still had my 3 Ring Binder that I purchased when they first became available through Close to my Heart!!  I knew that it was a cool mini album, just did not realize the potential that it had!  Thanks to Tresa for seeing the potential and MORE, I have a super cute gift!

Thanks SO much Tresa for your videos and the detailed instructions to make this!  I LOVE the way it turned out and can't wait to make more!  

If you want to see any of these photos closer, all you need to do is click on it and you will have a LARGE and DETAILED view of each page.......
