Cuddle up! Mini Album with video tutorial

Authentique's Cuddle: Boy & Girl collections have been my favorite baby-themed papers.  The soft colors & vintage designs plus the classic pink for girls & blue for boys are a pleasure to work and create with!

In continuing with the mini album phase that I seem to be going through, I've created matching boy & girl accordion, zig zag mini albums, perfect to hold wallet sized 2 x 3 inch photos.

I was inspired for these mini's from a Pinterest photo I stumbled upon.  I saw the photo & found it 'different' from the typical accordion-style albums and decided I would give replicating the mini a shot! Here's the end result.

The mini albums measure 5 3/4" x 2 3/4" inches & can hold up to 11 wallet sized photos!  

I'm not sure if the original mini had pockets, but I made pockets for my version.  I'm big on journaling & always have to have a place in my project to add my thoughts, dates, sentiments etc.

The album can hold photos on both sides & is just right for a small, quick gift or for your own memorabilia.

Speaking of having a keepsake of your own...I loved this little mini so much that I made the boy version of it for myself.  As you can see, I've already filled it with pictures of my own little guy.  The photos are of him during his first 12 months.

On the cover of both albums I included a sentiment from the "Components" 6x12 cardstock die cut accent sheet. These sentiments add the perfect finishing touch to this little mini.

I've created a tutorial on how I went about creating this mini.  Enjoy!
