Welcome Laura!

Hello Laura and thank you for the lovely comments about The Vintage Vignette! I very much appreciate reader feedback and I was glad to gather the info about the mini album closure technique for you.

However, I can't take credit for the technique because I learned it from the fabulous "Weezie" from Youtube. I deviated from her technique just a wee bit by using a hitch fastener instead of a button and looped and knotted my hair tie from the inside back cover first.

Looped and knotted band inserted from the inside back cover through to the back cover. (photo above).

View of the hair band from the back cover (photo above).

View of the cover with the hair band pulled from the back cover and
wrapped around the hitch fastener on the front cover.

So that you have a choice of both techniques check out Weezie's tutorial below. I hope this helps you to finish out your first mini in grand style!

  1. Wonderful tutorial.... I have been wondering how to keep my once to be a mini ( now a big mac) closed... Thanks soooo much!!!!!!!!

    I also tried my hand at the ribbon rosette today... Not too bad for my first one... Room to improve but cute enough to use. Love your blog.....

  2. This is a great idea! Will try that with some of my journals that have gotten really fat!
