'Imagine' Fold Out Mini Album


Today's project is a fold out mini album made with the lovely 'Imagine' collection.  Just a little tid bit about me, I'm surrounded by boys & men at home.  Even my pup Toby is a boy.  So I have no girly outlets!  This is probably why I thoroughly enjoy sweet & pastel collections such as this one.  It's an outlet for my 'girly' side!  :-)

The inspiration for this quick mini came from a few photos that I saw floating around in Pinterest.  I did not follow a tutorial.  I just saw the photos & made my own attempt at recreating the mini.  This was the end result...not too bad I think!


The mini measures 3 1/4" x 6 3/4" inches when closed.  For the closure, I created a belly band & adhered a large flower to it.  The mini folds out into four panels that can be used to store small photos, tags and/or journaling.


Here's the back of the mini.  I think that the next time I make this I'm going to add designer paper to the back as well in order to create additional space for more photos and/or journaling.  

I feel that this mini makes for a really quick & cute keepsake.  This literally took me less than an hour to complete.  I don't know about most of you but I'm always literally in a rush!  I wish I had the luxury to craft for hours & hours--but unfortunately I do not.  So I'm always looking for fast projects but also projects that are different or unique in some way.  The design of this mini is different & the best part about it is that it can stand on it's own & display the photos that are inserted into the mini.  So it can sit on a desk in an office or on shelf at home or it can just be thrown into a purse as a 'brag book'.

Find below a brief video showcasing how the mini opens & closes.   In the video you can also see the complete design of the mini.  

Enjoy!
