Pineapple mini book + FREE cut file.

With summer in the air & this weeks focus being on ‘Fancy Cuts’, I thought you, as loyal FP fans, might enjoy a FREE cut file & mini book idea.
Using the gorgeous Summer Sun collection, I created this Pineapple shaped mini book, I know you will love!

To create the cute pineapple shaped covers, I layered yellow & orange plain papers which can be found on the reverse sides of the Summer Sun patterned papers. I used the aqua papers for the leaves & cut pineapple slices in x2 sizes, layering them together with buttons for the decorative flower. Twine & a fewephemera complete the arrangement, with a title cut from another brag card.

The inside pages are brag cards inserted into a folded paper strip, concertina style. SEE my post here for a FULL TUTORIAL. Just add photos, simple embellishments & journaling.

Here are a few of the inside pages, to give you an idea of how less is more when designing these decorative kinds of mini albums. I still want to add a few journaling strips, but the simple embellishments, definitely keep the focus on the photographs.
