Quick and Easy Mini Album Cube!

Pin It
I love the Cricut Mini Books cartridge!  It is super fast to make a fun little album. This box album came from this cartridge.

Take a look at the Cricut Mini Books cartridge below:

When my son had to make an unusual math project, by picking a number, writing down qualities and examples of that number and then presenting it in a novel way, I knew this mini cube would be perfect.

By the way, who thinks up these weird math assignments?  

Anyway...Robbie wanted to have a super hero theme so we chose super hero paper for the lid (by Close to My Heart) and then used the Cricut Batman cartridge for the inside.
I cut the album at 10-1/2", with white, yellow, and blue for the inside pages and red for the base of the album.

It was the perfect way to show case the qualities of our number "8" and then show a real world example behind the qualities.

If you need to make an album quickly, I highly recommend this cartridge!

Of course, he got a "100" on the project - woo hoo!

Don't forget that I am giving away a Cricut Creative Cards cartridge this week - click HERE to enter and scroll down to see the form!

Do you make mini albums?  Let me know in the comments below. I like them for gifts and apparently, school assignments (hee hee!).

  1. What an Awesome Project!
    Bet it blew all the others away!

    {My daughter always asks to cut something for her projects
    and with computer printed parts they look great!}

  2. JOY! As usual a wonderful project!!!
    I think this mini album cart is awesome!!!!

    Got a cartridge question for there one that has just all kinds of fonts? Like script and fancy and so on? I have plenty that have one font and the fonts are all cutesy or block lettering...I want fancy, script lettering. Any ideas or suggestions???

    one of your CU buddies in Montana!

  3. What a fun idea for a school project! Almost makes me wish my kids were at that age again. Not quite...but almost. LOL

  4. Great cube! One of my favorite quotes is "Always be yourself, unless you can be batman. Than always be batman." I forget who said it first. My daughter gets irritated with me because I'm always saying "I am Batman" a la Sheldon Cooper (big bang).

  5. Superb project! Without a doubt I am sure it was the best project in his entire class!

  6. What a great project! I agree with you that some of the assignments these days are a bit strange!

    To answer your question, I don't make mini albums but I keep promising myself that I will...someday.

  7. I love mini albums too! I did a flip-a-flap one recently and it was fun to make. Love your Batman cube.

  8. I've only made a few mini albums. I love this one. Thanks for sharing.

  9. What a fun idea! TFS.

  10. love mini albums. making on CD's is fun.

  11. I love that album. I have made a few mini albums but today I bought the mini book cartridge. I hope to get lots of use from it. TFS!

  12. Awesome project! I have made a few mini albums already

  13. Your Batman cube was a clever way to complete this math project! Recently added the Mini books cartridge to my collection and look forward to using it. I do more paper crafts than scrapbooking.

  14. Awesome...... my daughter is 13 yrs. old and she declares herself a nerd and loves everything Batman.

  15. Great ideas for mini albums - you must stay awake at night thinking up all these wonderful ideas. Love the batman cube! Thanks so much for giving us these super projects.

  16. What a great idea for a school project Joy! Your son's project is so clever! I must say that this cartridge is going to be on my wish list! Thanks for sharing!


  17. Great project... I used to dread those types of school assignments. Wish I had a Cricut way back then! Robbie will be lucky if the teacher gives his back!

  37. I have made only one mini album I made in a class. I may try some more for my grandchildren after graduation for my youngest.
