Creating strictly masculine projects has always been something I struggled with a little bit but I decided again to create something other than a card so I made this little mini album with just card stock and a few pictures I had taken of my son and my nephews over the years.
This is a 4 x 4 size mini album that I created with just a few sheets of card stock but you could make this larger or smaller depending on your needs. I scored a sheet of 12 x 12 white card stock and then cut that into 3 strips and adhered them together accordion style. The cover was created by simply scoring a 4″ wide piece of the Olive green card stock and folding it to fit with 1/4″ spaces left to allow for the pages and then I added a small piece of velcro as a closure.
I added the picture and the small label but it just looked really plain so I added a few stars that I punched out of the blue card stock and wrote in the word thoughtful. On the page underneath I left a white border when I trimmed the picture so I didn’t have to add a photo mat. The labels and front cover title are all my own cut file designs but there are many similar products available.
