Mini Album Closures

The Ultimate Mini Album Website

There are so many mini album closures options available.  Here we want to share some of the many options we have seen.  Please use the form at the bottom of the page to submit your ideas!  We'd love to share them with our readers!

One of my absolute favorite closures for mini albums are the Teresa Collins perfect closures. They are really easy to install on any mini scrapbook.  I bought a ton of them because I am afraid they are going out of stock and they are not manufacturing any new ones.

Here is another closure idea we did on our file folder scrapbook.

You can also create a Belly Band for your book as we did in this one.

Or purchase a rubber band type of closure as in this Smash book.

Here are a few photos on using 7 Gypsies Elastics and a Book Knob to create a fun closure.

You simply punch a hole on the back of your book to put the elastic in as shown.

Somebody on our Mini Books Group shared this metal latch that would make a great closure. 

And I bought this one at the hardware store that I think will make a great closure on a gatefold album.

Terry Hathaway from the Mini Books Group used a product called Velcro One Wrap from Velcro USA.

On this gate fold flag book we created our own clasp.  We give you a tutorial for that here.

Other ideas from our Mini Books Yahoo groups were:

  • Baby Headbands
  • Velcro
  • Chain with Fastener by Tim Holtz
  • Ribbon
  • Lace
  • Hair Elastic
  • Jewelry closures
  • Velcro from vegetables
  • Magnetic Closures
