An Autumn Wavy Zig Zag Album with "Grateful" & Kiwi Lane

For today's project I decided to do a zig zag album.  I saw several of these on Pinterest & felt that I could add a little bit more of interest to this type of mini by using one of the mini borders by Kiwi Lane.  All papers used were from the 'Grateful ' collection.
Here you can better appreciate the 'wavy' part of this mini created with the use of a mini Kiwi Lane border.  This mini has double pockets on both sides which I've filled with photo & journaling inserts in different sizes.  This mini can hold photos in sizes of 2" x 2", 3" x 4" & 4" x 6" inches.

Here's the back of the mini.  I created a belly band where you can slip a 4" x 6" photo mat.  As a stopper for the photo mat, I'm using a sticker from the 'elements' page of the Grateful collection.  It's only adhered at the bottom so the photo mat can tuck itself right inside.
The album is held close by a string of burlap that I've adhered to the back of the mini on just one side.  This way, one can open the mini & not lose the burlap string.

There are several tutorials available on how to make a zig zag album--but the best one I found by far is by My Creative Spirit on YouTube.  You can find the video here.  I followed her tutorial fairly closely & the main difference was on how I created the top edge of the mini since I used a mini border by Kiwi Lane.

Here's a quick video of my project.  I've gotten a bit better with my video editing skills!
