Hi there, Loes here to show you how to make a mini album with the "Pride" collection! As you know, "Pride" is centered around American patriotism, but I live in the Netherlands and we have the same patriotic colors, so this collection can be very versatile! I loved making this mini album, if you don't understand the title, it's the name of a small town here in the Netherlands.
This mini album is made with envelopes as the base of the pages, so you will need to gather up some envelopes from around the house.
To start, cut three pieces of cardstock, 2 3/4 inch, 2 1/4 inch, 1 3/4 inch x the height of your envelops.
Make score lines on the largest piece at 3/4, 1 1/4, 3/4 inch
On the middle piece at 3/4, 3/4, 3/4 inch
and on the smallest piece at 3/4 inch, 1/4 inch, 3/4 inch
In the middle, put double sided tape and glue them together in the middle of each piece.
Now you have six little pieces paper. This is your binding.
I used six envelopes and closed four of them.
The two open ones, I made tags to stick out the ends. When you have a lot of pictures it is a great idea to leave all of your envelops open to fit more in the album.
After that, cut the other side of the envelopes open, mine are 11 x 5 inch.
Use double sided tape and put the envelops on the cardstock pieces that you made before.
Take two pieces chipboard - 11.5 x 5.5 inch
Cut two pieces of patterned paper12 x 7.5 inch and glue them around the chipboard.
Cut one piece chipboard 5.5 x 1 1/4 inch.
Cut a piece fabric of 5 x 7.5 inch and put glue on the smallest piece chipboard and put it in the middle of the fabric.
Cut another piece fabric 5 x 5 1/4 inch and use glue to put it on the middle again. Cut two papers of 11 x 5.5 inch and put them on the inside of the mini album.
Your album should look similar to this.
Take the inside (with the envelops) and use strong tape or glue to glue this to the inside base of your album. I love to work with Tacky glue or Scor-tape.
For inside of this mini, I used Dutch photos that I took in a small town called Zaanse Schans.
Here is the open envelope with a big tag in it.
The small windows are chipboard pieces from Maya Road.
The doily is made by my mother in law.
The little frame is the from an outline of a sticker.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are able to show your "Pride" as well, even if you aren't in the USA!
