New Flip and Fold Scrapbook Mini

Not exactly a brand new flip and fold scrapbook mini from a design standpoint, but new in the sense that I made another one with a completely different color scheme/paper line.

Lets face it, they are kind of hard to part with.

Since it is a good idea to cut your scraps down to manageable squares (6×6, 5×5, and so on), they are already a perfect size for use in mini albums, cards, tags, book markers, etc.  I especially love it when I can make an entire mini album.
