Hello, hello! Samantha Ziegenfuss here with another mini album that is super easy to make. Mini albums are a real passion of mine and I am having a lot of fun sharing that with all of you!
For this mini you will need the following:
- Discount Cardstock in Dolphin Gray
- Score-Tape Premium Double Sided Adhesive (.25″ width)
- Patterned paper of your choice (I’m using the For the Record 2 collection by Echo Park)
- A corner rounder
- A Velcro or other brand hook and loop adhesive-backed dot
You will need to cut and score the following pieces of cardstock from your Discount Cardstock:
1 piece for the base @ 8.5″ x 11″ scored on the 11″ side at 2.5″, 2.75″, 7.5″ and 7.75″
2 pieces for the side flaps @ 8.5″ x 4 3/8″ scored on the 8.5″ side at .5″ and 4 7/8″
Adhere Score-Tape to the .5″ flaps. Miter the corners as shown below.
1 piece for the pocket @ 9.5″ x 2.75″ scored on the 2.75″ side at .5″ and on the 9.5″ side at .5″ and 9″.
Apply Score-Tape to the .5″ folds and miter the corners at an angle.
1 piece for the bottom flap @ 8.5″ x 3.5″ scored on the 3.5″ side at .5″. Apply Score-Tape to the .5″ fold and miter the corners.
Corner round your base and bottom flap pieces.
Apply patterned paper to all the pieces except for the inside center and inside bottom of the base as shown below.
Adhere the side flaps to either side of the center of the base.
Attach the pocket over the side flaps.
Slip your patterned paper inside the pocket and adhere.
Adhere the bottom flap to the bottom of the base.
Cover the bottom of the base with patterned paper.
Attach a Velcro dot for a closure. Embellish as you’d like.
