DCWV hardcover mini album with string binding

The DIY project mini album stack by DCWV contain everything you need to create an ring binding scrapbook very quickly. But when I saw some of the pages, I immediately thought of making a smaller album because some of the sheet can be cut in half to decorate the mini. So instead of cutting them, I folded them ! And by doing that, I did think about string binding instead of ring binding, but this need a hardcover for the album... So... I made one with cardboard and masking tape !
The gold paper makes a beautiful reinforcement... To match it I use a gold string for binding.

The cute charms by Blue Moon Beads are the perfect accents for this album !

Let's take a look inside... On the first page, I adhere the tracing paper with the string to mask the glue.

I folded a transparency in half and bind it with with mint stripes paper. Love this combo !

Many beautiful pages and possibilities... I have papers, stickers and embellishments left from the stack to fill this album...

Another transparency folded :

I didn't show you all the pages but this album contains 14 pages to be filled ! And I only use one stack to create it beside the cardboard ! 
You can find this DCWV Project stack - mini album (as well as other projects) at Michaels. I did play with the mini envelope too (see my Instagram picture here).

Thank you for reading this post. I will try to do a video about string binding soon if you are interested...
See you soon !
