Today I wanted to share with you a tutorial on how to make a mini album from paper. You can use cardstock or patterned paper; it you use patterned paper make sure it is double sided. I have been playing around with some Lily Bee papers and came up with this fun project. I'm going to give mine to my gram. This would make a great present to send someone you don't get to see that often. Or a fun "brag" book for grandparents.
Here is my finished project:
Here is a picture of it opened. (you could add picture here)
Here are the flaps opened.
Here is a close up of one of the pictures.
First cut your paper 12 x 4 inches. Score paper at 3 1/2, 3 1/2, and 1 1/2.
Then cut your flaps 3 x 7 inches and fold in half.
Then adhere the flaps between the scores.
Then cut a piece 7 x 1 inches for your band that goes around it.
Last just add pictures and embellishments. The bigger/thicker the embellsihment the harder to close. So place them where they won't hit each other when closing ;)
Thanks for looking!
