MINI ALBUM BOOK ACCESSORIES

HI EVERYONE
Another sleepless night provided me with some extra craft time so I made some accessories to go with the mini albums I will be making soon. Actually, after seeing several mini album tutorials  I have sort of become hooked. But I plan to make them different (hopefully) to those I've seen.
I purchased the Tim Holtz postcards red rubber stamp recently and just love it..Of course to shrink them I stamped, scanned and then printed them on white card stock..I  distressed them with Tim Holtz inks and used a blade to rough up the edges..
Almost forget to show the other side of the postcards. I hunted through my pics and found some freebie vintage photos and made them smaller than the postard. Glued them on and then distressed them. They really do look like postcards but miniatures:)

These mini tags are the same size as the postcards. For the front of the tag I painted white paper with acrylic inks, scrunched the paper when it was dry and added memories mist iridescent for some sheen.. For the back I just distressed them with distress ink.
And look at these beautiful charms...I bought them yesterday at a thrift shop and I will be adding them to my mini albums as well. 
I will also be adding more accessories when I make something or find some interesting items...so you can get some ideas of what you can add to your mini albums..
Anyway I hope you enjoy...Leave a comment if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them:)
