For Father's Day, I've made this really simple & quick file folder mini album.  As the name implies, I've made this album with one Kraft file folder. Even though the album looks small from the outside, it actually has many tuck spots & hidden pockets for stori
ng photos, journaling & other small tokens of memorabilia.  

I've used both the 12 x 12 papers & 6 x 6 paper pad from the 'Manly' collection for this project.  The album measures 5" x 6 1/2" inches when closed. The measurements include the file folder tabs.

There are several videos on YouTube on creating albums from file folders. I primarily took inspiration from this video & then added my own touch to the final design of the album.

The album has an accordion style design. As mentioned, this album is small but packs a big punch. There are a couple of hidden pockets, several tags are tucked throughout the album & there are also several places for storing photos. Cut-aparts from the collection were matted on Kraft card stock & stored throughout the album.

The album has double pockets & a belly band with a sliding element.

This is the back of the album. The back opens down revealing additional storage for photos. There are also two pockets on the back page. 

This is the back of the album when opened.

Below is a video walk through of this album. Since it has several hidden pockets & storage for photos and/or journaling; it was a bit difficult to photograph. Enjoy & Happy Father's Day!

Supplies Used: Manly 12 x 12 Collection, Manly 6 x 6 paper pad.  Other: Gold Clip, Spiral Paper Clips, Washi Tape
