This mini album design is based on an origami cut and fold and is easy to do.
|I made this one for my daughter about our visit to the Apple Orchard|
Finished album is 3 1/2" x 4"
You will need:
- 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock
- scissors or paper cutter
- scoring tool
- pictures and embellishments
- Double sided tape or glue
- paper crimper is nice but not necessary
It is hard to show the scoring lines in a photo, but if you look closely, they are there.
Now cut along both opposite 4" scores up to the last 3" score mark leaving one segment connected on opposite ends.
Basically you will end up with one valley fold, and one mountain fold where the three rows are connected. All the segments can then be accordion folded into a booklet. Play with it. That's what I did until it worked. The pictures below shows what it will look like.
Next make the cover. It should be 4 1/4" wide by 7" long. If you are going to crimp it, start with a 10" length.
Embellish your cover if desired. I finished the cover with an apple design that was cut with my cricut machine, but you could add anything you like - a photo, title, or purchased scrapbook embellishment.
Fill your pages with wonderful memories. Trim and tie the ribbon. You're done!
Happy Crafting ♥
