A 'Hooray' Sliding Panel Mini Album

Today's project is a birthday themed mini album made with the festive 'Hooray' collection.  This mini album measures 7 1/4" x 5" inches & has a 2 3/4" inch spine.

I did not have the opportunity to create a tutorial for this project. If enough requests come in, I'll add this project to the list of tutorials that I can put together for the future.  At a minimum, I'll create a brief tutorial on how to create the pages used in this album.

I've created a large shaker on the cover of the album. As soon as I saw this collection, I knew I wanted to embed a shaker in my project.  At first, I was going to use the shaker as the spine of the album, but after some thought I decided to add it to the cover instead.

Each page in the album consists of a sliding panel on one side & a pocket on the other. 

The sliding panel keeps the photo mats underneath closed. The sliding panel can move from left to right & reveals a photo mat underneath each side. When the sliding panel completely moves to one side, the photo mat on the opposite side can then be opened.

On both the front & back covers there is a belly band.  Inside each belly band I've put a folded photo mat measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" inches. These photo mats can hold up to 4 photos each measuring up to 4" x 5 1/4" inches.

Each photo mat underneath the sliding panel flips open revealing additional space for photos. These photo mats measure 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" inches and can store photos measuring up to 3" x 4" inches.

Each pocket page measures 7" x 4 1/2" inches. These pockets can easily fit 4" x 6" inch photos--no cropping necessary.

Below is a video walkthrough of this mini album. Enjoy & stay safe!

Supplies Used: Hooray Collection, Other: Sequins, Glitter Card Stock
