This is Nikkita Today. Crafters, what do you do to preserve your memories, like we often click photographs, get them framed or make an album. How about making your on scrapbook album to give a handmade touch to your beautiful memories. Today I'm going to inspire you with a Vintage Mini album, so that all you can try easily and gift to your loved ones or preserve memories of your life.

Instructions:

Step 1 - Take 2 pieces of chipboard measuring 6 by 6 inches for the base and for the spine take 2.5 by 6 inches. Cover it like book using cardstock and tacky tape.


Step 2 - For the closure take two ribbons and stick them in the middle and cover the whole chipboard using cardstock.


Step 3 - For the pages I used hidden hinge binding system and I have left a gap of 1/2'' between every hinge.

Made 6 pages total,

Page size measures 5.75 by 5.75''

Made 6 pockets measuring 5.5 by 5.5''.


Step 4 - Cut pattern paper as per your choice and distress it with distress ink vintage photo to give a complete look.

I use tacky tape/tacky glue for sticking my pattern paper.


Step 5 - To Decorate Cover, i simply used a Leather paper which is locally available in my near stationery store, I adhered MDF Cut Out, Die cuts, Mulberry Flowers and Resin Charm to give an Vintage look. 


Step 6: Decorate the inside pages as per your choice.  


Tip: When you'll adhere MDF cutout, let it sit for few time to get it adhere with base strongly. I've used Aleene's Tacky Glue
