Mini Album Booklet Tutorial

This is a tutorial for building just the base of a mini album booklet. I will also add the two part video tutorial for an album like this one.   These albums are just like the one Crystal started during yesterday’s Creating with Crystal and she will be finishing it next Thursday.

Step 3

  Attach mat using base color over Tyvek & side flaps (12) (13)

 

 

 

Step 4 

  Center & attach Middle (1) piece to outer middle by putting scor-tape on middle

   NOT THE OUTER PIECE

(close your flaps down to make it easier to center)

 

 

 

 

Step 5  – (Put scor-tape close to score lines)

Attach the 2 left pieces  (3) (5) to each other using scor tape on the small flap of the smallest piece. Repeat with right side pieces (2) (4)

 

 

 

Step 6 

  Attach left & right sides to middle using scor-tape on 2 1/8” flaps.

 

 

 

Step 7 

  Cut 3 glitter sheets @ 6×6” and use frame tool (optional – can just mat)

And the 3 decorative mats @ 5 ¾ x 5 ¾” for back and front flaps.

 

 

 

Step 8 

  Layer the pieces from step 7 onto pieces (6,7, and 8) ( 6 ¼ x 6 ¼” of alternate color)

 

 

 

Step 9 

Attach 3 panels created in previous step onto front flap & back of the OUTER piece that you created in steps 1-3 (note the front ones will be attached to half sheets)

 

Decorate the way you want!
