Good morning...today I would like to share with you the cutest album, full of lots of folds, flaps and pages. I was digging through some of my photos and came across some older pictures of my kids. I love these pictures, they are some of my favorite ones of them when they were little. I saw this mini album several places online, so I know it has been done before, but this album was perfect for some of those favorite photos. Let's get started.
You will need one 12 x 6 piece of cardstock or patterned paper, three 12 x 5.75 pieces of cardstock or patterned paper and two 5.5 x 5.5 pieces of cardstock or patterned paper. For this project, I the patterned paper from the Renew Collection. Authentique's patterned paper is perfect because it is so thick.
First score the 12 x 6 piece at 3 inches and then again at 2.5 inches. Score it from each end. Score the 12 x 5.75 pieces at 3 inches from each end.
Next, adhere all of the 12 x 5.75 pieces together, making a chain.
Turn the paper chain over and adhere the 12 x 6 paper to the middle of the connected 12 x 5.75 pieces of paper.
This is what it should look like.
Take your 5.5 x 5.5 pieces of paper and adhere them to the outside flaps of the 12 x 6 paper. Leave an even border around all three edges.
Now you have a fun mini album ready to embellish and add pictures to.
There are so many fun folds and pages in this mini album, perfect for embellishing and adding photos. As you can see off to the left I even added one the the Petite Folders to the album...adding just a bit more to the pages and folds.
There are lots of goodies and embellishments in this album...make it your own. There are so many possibilities.
Pretty dang cool huh? There is is much you can do with this album and with the Authentique's awesome collections...it makes it even that much more fun.
