A 'Youngster' File Folder Mini Album With Tutorial

Today's post is another file folder mini album.  This time I've created the tutorial to go along with it. :-) This project I originally made five years ago in 2015! Then I brought it back late last month in December. Here's the link to my December post where I used both the 'A Magical Christmas' & 'Nostalgia' collections. Here's the original post that I made back in 2015. For the 2015 project, I used the pet themed 'Devoted' collection. 

The base of the album is a Kraft file folder. I bought a box of these from Staples some time back. These Kraft folders are slightly bigger than the black file folders I recently bought from Amazon. So this album ended up with a slightly wider spine which works in my favor. The wider the spine, the more room to store photos I say...

This time I've used a much older collection, but one of my faves--the 'Youngster' collection! I have a son & am always striving to make more boy themed projects as I feel we just don't have enough boy projects out there! The album measures 6 3/4" x 9 1/8" inches and has a 1/2" inch spine. The album covers are made with light weight chipboard.

For this 'Youngster' album I kept the same design as the album I made in December. I did take inspiration from a video tutorial on YouTube uploaded in 2014.  I referenced this video in all my previous posts with this style of album--so I will continue to reference it here.

The inside of the album consists of several flaps & pockets in different sizes. There are layered full pockets, one side pocket, small 'tuck' pockets and two large side pockets on both the front & back covers of the album.

Inside each of the pockets are tags.  The tags range in size with 7 3/4" x 5" inches being the largest & 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" inches the smallest. The two side pockets have two large booklets measuring 8 1/2" x 5 3/4" when closed. 

Below is a video walkthrough of the album & the tutorial. Enjoy!
