Over to you Mansi
Hello Crafters,
Hope you all are doing well!!
Sharing a small tutorial on Super mini album in Accordion fold style. You can use this for anniversaries, birthdays, showers or any simple photo album. It is easy and cost effective to make. It measures 3.5 * 3.5 inches. Hope you will enjoy making it.


Material Required:
1) Chipboard/ Cardboard- 3.5* 3.5 iches- 2 pcs
3.5* ¾ inch- 1 pc.
2) Designer pattern paper- 3*3 inches- 11 pcs
3.25* 3.25 inches- 2 pcs
3.25* 1.5 inch- 1 pc
3) Black cardstock- 3.25* 19.5 inches- 1 pc.
4) Ribbon
5) Stamps and embellishments. 



First Step:
Score the black cardstock at the interval of 3.25 inches, and fan fold it. Our base of folded album will be ready.



Second Step:
Place the chipboard pcs on black cardstock and fold the ends making book like structure. Don’t forget to leave a little space (approx. 2mm) between the 3 panels. This space helps in folding the flaps. Stick the patterned paper inside the book, and keep it aside.



 


Third Step:
Now take the Fan fold strip and stick pattern paper pcs on it randomly using Aleene tacky glue or your favorite glue. (You can always increase the number of panels by sticking another black cardstock to it). Cover all the sides, front and back, except for the panel on the top.

 


Forth Step:
Now Paste the ribbon and the 3.25 inch sized pattern paper on top of book, paste the small pattern paper on spine to finalize the base of your album. Now with blank side at bottom, paste the album panels inside the album and yippee, your album is ready. 




Fifth Step:
Now this is my favorite step. Embellishments.
Use Sentiments, flowers, or any other decoration. I like to create a layer and keep it Simple. Here is the final look. Hope you enjoyed and understood this step to step process! Good luck and keep making more!!
