A 'Love Notes' Tri-Fold Shutter Mini Album

Today's project is a tri-fold shutter mini album. I saw this type of mini album on Pinterest & decided to make a similar version of it. The video is in Spanish & the measurements are in centimeters. So I made several changes to the overall design & added my own crafty touch to this project. :-)

I ran out of time to create my own tutorial for this album. However, I need to do another one of these for St. Patrick's. When I create the St. Patrick version, I'll upload the video as well.

This is the Valentine's Day version. I've used the sweet & lovely 'Love Notes' collection.

The album measures 7" x 8 1/2" inches when closed. I've created a 2" inch belly band for the closure. The belly band is decorated with both fabric & mulberry paper flowers.

On the inside of both outer covers, there is a diagonal pocket. A large tag measuring 3 1/2" x 7 1/2" is  tucked inside each pocket.

The tri-fold elements of the album are held closed with a belly band that tucks in behind one side There's a decorative 'slider' on the band that I created with a sticker from the Details Card Stock Sticker sheet that comes with the collection.

The tri-fold component has one primary photo mat that measures 3 1/2" x 5" inches. This can store a photo measuring up to 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" inches.  There's a mirror page on the opposite side where an additional photo can be stored.

In the center, I've created a pocket where two tags are stored inside. These tags keep a small waterfall that's behind them closed.

Here's the other side of the tri-fold album with the second photo mat.

This is the waterfall that's behind the two tags in the center.  I've used the cut-aparts from the collection to create this small waterfall. There are five pages. If both sides of each photo mat is used, you can store up to 9 photos. If only one side is used then you can store 4 photos. Each photo mat measures 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" inches.

There is additional space for photos behind each tri-fold element.

Each tag can also be used for either storing photos, journaling or both.

This album can stand open & be displayed on a shelf or desk.

Below is a video walkthrough of the mini album. Stay tuned for a tutorial in the near future!

Paper - Authentique Love Notes Collection, Love Notes Details Card Stock Sticker Sheet, Other - Fabric Flowers, Mulberry Paper Flowers
