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.
