yep that's this week's tip. Stock up on reinforcements, you know those little white circles that you had to put on your loose-leaf pages in school, cause the pages kept tearing out of the binder. Well, they work fabulously when you are building the cover of a mini album.
I put them on the inside sides (bit of a tongue twister there) of two pieces of cardstock
and then sandwich another piece of cardstock between the two pieces to create a fairly sturdy, stable cover. (see pictures below)
