Starbucks Mini Album - With a Shot of Fun

I am not sure exactly where I saw or got this idea but it is the cutest little mini album I  have ever done. All it took was a quick call to our one and only Starbucks explaining what I wanted to do and not only did they give me cup(s) but they gave me bags, tissue and sleeves. I love living in a small town.

For this project I used all stamping up products from the NEW Holiday Mini Catalogue and a few items from the Idea Book and Catalogue 201-12.

OMG I love Starbucks! This album is amazing I may have to steal the idea. I've saved a bunch of the sleeves from Starbucks to make an album with but never got round to it. Loving your blog.

I love this idea too - amazing!

BUT I am confused as to how it is put together, any photos of it in the "making" stages to expand on this would also be great!
