'Eastertime' & 'Beloved' Pop Up Mini Albums with Tutorial

Today's project is one that is my fave by far.  While browsing through YouTube, Pinterest & other online sites I noticed several tutorials & images for the 'Pop Up' cards--I've also seen them called 'Pop & Twist' cards.  However, I'm not a card maker, so even though I thought the idea was original & unique--I didn't give it much thought.

Then I came across a fabulous tutorial by a fellow crafter named Alagaina.  Alagaina lives in Spain & has a YouTube channel full of fabulous tutorials, project shares & ideas.  She was clever enough to take the 'Pop Up' card technique & use it to create a mini album.  At this point I was hooked & had to try it!

I absolutely LOVED it!  It's such a creative twist to the 'Pop Up' card technique & you end up with a unique keepsake for yourself or for someone else.  I believe that these mini albums make for fabulous gifts as well.

So for my first attempt, I created the 'Pop Up Mini Album' with Authentique's 'Beloved' collection.

These minis measures 4" x 6" inches when closed & it have three different pop up panels.  For both of my minis I've used an elastic ribbon as a 'belly band' for the closure.

The second 'Pop Up' mini was made with the 'Eastertime' collection by Authentique.  I created this mini as I recorded the video tutorial on how to make the mini.

As previously mentioned, I followed Alagaina's tutorial which is in Spanish to make these mini albums.  When my 'Beloved' mini album was shared on Authentique's social media, it caught the eye of many people & the requests for a tutorial started flooding in.

Even though Alagaina does provide her measurements in both inches & centimeters, we still had many requests to have the tutorial in English.  So I reached out to Alagaina & asked for her permission to translate her tutorial into English.  She graciously gave me permission to do so.

Below you'll find the video/link to my translation of Alagaina's 'Pop Up Mini Album' tutorial.  In the description box below my tutorial in YouTube, you can also find links to Alagaina's YouTube channel & to her original 'Pop Up Mini Album' tutorial.
