Mini Album Tutorial

Hi Everyone

I hope you all enjoyed the crop last night - those papers in the kit were absolutely gorgeous. Here are Sandra's pages:





And here is my finished Mini Album:




I used the same papers as last night's pages plus 1 x sheet of 12x12 light pink card. I also added A4 sheets of brown and another pink which matched the papers well.  Sandra has Bazzil to match if you need the solid colours. I also used the Trims and Brads that came in the kit.
To make the mini album:

1. Take your sheet of 12x12 cardstock and cut it into two strips measuring 5" x 12"

2. Score the first strip 3 1/2" in from each edge

3. Score the second strip 3 1/2" in from one side and 3 5/8" in from the other side. You should now have two strips  one of which fits inside the other.  Stick the middle two squares together.  You will now have your mini album!

4. Decorate as desired and to finish off add ribbon around the outside and tie at the front.  I used double sided sticky tape to attach the ribbon at the back and have just left the ends loose so that I can tie them at the front.  

Good luck - any questions just ask: pagesofmemories@hotmail.co.uk and I will also bring the mini-album next week for people to look at.

Have a fab day
