Mini Album - paper hinge technique!

Good Monday Morning!

 I have a fun mini album to share today!
Back & Front covers
paper hinge (burlap paper)
Cricut- Plantin Schoobook, My Quiet Book carts.
Kraft cardstock
Simple Stories papers
October Afternoon wild cards
Inspired by Misty
Paper hinges!  This was a totally new technique for me, but oh-so-easy!!  I simply cut two 4x4 cards, butt-ed them together and attached paper 'hinges' over the front/back cover and over the seam in the middle of the book!  (It helps to score the hinges first.)  I'll certainly be using this method again!
