For today's post, I brought back a project from two years ago. Back in 2018 I created a 'maze' mini album with the Jingle collection. This time around, I've made it with the 'A Magical Christmas' collection.
This is a quick & simple album that makes for an easy stocking stuffer & provides a creative way to store a few Christmas memories. :-)
The album measures 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" inches and has a 1/2" inch spine.
The album gets its name from the way it folds open & closes. The album opens towards the bottom, then to the right, back up & finally to the left. The pages of the album continue to open up in this counter clockwise direction & also get smaller in size until it's fully opened.
Page sizes start at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" inches & end at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" inches.
The first page of the album has a pocket where three 3" x 4" inch cut apart cards from the collection are stored. This is the only page in the album that has some sort of extra decoration to it. This type of album is primarily for storing & displaying photos along with journaling.
The album is held closed by a 'lid'. The outside of the album can be decorated to resemble a gift box. I followed this approach with the Jingle maze album from 2 years ago. For this project I opted to decorate the cover of the album with fabric & mulberry paper flowers & use the lid as a closure for the album.
Below are the measurements I used to make this album & a video walkthrough. Enjoy!
