Mini Pocket Album Tutorial By DT Aditi Mahajan

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to a fun tutorial today! I am excited to be here and today I'm sharing an easy to make album tutorial. This one does not require a hinge system and is a cute small book that can fit into a handbag.

Before starting the tutorial, have a look at the album.



Let's begin...

First cut two pieces of chipboard for the front and back cover. (measurements in inches)



Next, cut card stock and score for our pages. Score on the 7" side first at 3.5", flip the page and at the 6" side score at 4.5".




Keeping the 7" side, fold over the score line upward. Next, turn over and fold over the 3.5" score line. Do this to all five pages.





I wanted to add some design to the pockets, so I used a punch for this.




 Using 5 different pattern paper sheets from the book, cut papers for the pages. (3.25" x 4")

 


Distress the edges and stick onto the cardstock page using tacky tape.

  
              



Time to stick the pockets. Add a thin line of glue on the extreme ends and fold the flap upward and press to stick.


 

Cut patterned paper for the pockets and stick.




To close the page, add glue as shown below, fold and press firmly. This way, we get a pocket on the top of the page as well.



Once all pages are done, punch three holes on the end that is stuck together; one in the center and two 3/8th from the top and bottom. You can use one page as a template to mark holes on the other pages.


 

Cover the chipboard pieces with the same cardstock and add patterned paper (pp- 3 5/8 " x 4 5/8"). Once done, using the page as a reference, center on the chipboard pieces and punch three holes. 





Add eyelets to the pages and the cover. Initially I wanted to use the rings to put the book together, but later decided to use some ribbon. So you could use either.


 

For the pockets on top, cut 5 tags using the cardstock. Pattern Paper measurements would vary according to the style of your tag.



With this the basic structure of the album is ready. Let's move to the decoration.

Now in this tutorial, you will notice that my main focus has been on using a single 6" paper pack and minimal wastage. For the entire album including the tags and photo mats, only 9 sheets pattern paper sheets and five 12x12 cardstock sheets were used. 


Since this is a small album, I made the photo mats according to the left over rectangle pattern paper pieces from the pages and cover. I used the die cut sheets in the paper pack, to embellish further. Some places, I used them to make a pocket and add smaller die cut elements inside. 


The composition of the cover page is very important in such a project as that is the first thing anyone sees. I do not like to add anything and everything and clutter my cover, so I decide on a composition before I begin.


For this one, I used a die cut piece and stuck it with glue only on two sides to make a pocket. I inserted some quotes from the sheet, inside the pocket and embellished it with hand made flowers.


Here's a quick tutorial on how I made the flowers:

Stamp the image onto your paper, and die cut it. Next color using inks you have; I used Ranger Dye Inks, as they dry fast and are rich in pigment giving me vibrancy in the coloring. 





Next using the shaping tools, shape the flower. Flip it over and press on each petal dabbing the tool moving outside to inside but not in the center. 




Once done, this is what it will look like. 




Flip over and press in the center. Stick a smaller flower inside a bigger and add some beads, You can add glitter or frosting powder as well. 




In the same way you can shape your leaves. 


I then arranged these hand made embellishments, and was careful to not add too many as the size of the album is small. 


I added some different flowers, on my tags as well to dress them up. 


Here are some closeups and pictures of the pages.


















Hope you're inspired and want to create your own album.

Guest DT Afrreen: Folding Album Tutorial

Hello Crafty Friends,

A very good morning to you all.

Today in our Teaching and Learning Program we have Afrreen Banu as Guest DT. She is passionate about making handmade crafty products like Kundan Jewellery, Quilling and Papercrafts. She will gonna teach us Folding Album, so sit back and enjoy the step by step tutorial from her.

Over to you Afrreen,

Hello Everyone,
This is my first GD post for Rainbow Craftykari and thank you Maninder for this opportunity. Today am going to share a pictorial tutorial of making Mini Album.

Lets begin,

Step1: For album base we need chipboard (gsm as per your wish). Need 5 piece of various size chipboard size as follows (11x6.5cm ,11x3.5cm, 11x8cm, 11x3cm, 11x5cm), then 2  different pattern sheets for covering the chipboard outer and inner part (size of pattern sheet 26 ¾ x 11¼ cm and 30 x 14cm).

For inner pages need 4 piece of black cardstock 16.5x8cm score them at (8|0.5|8) here I used Penguins in love pattern sheet from Papericious.

 
 
Step 2: Adhere the chipboards to the pattern sheets for outer cover, trim the corners now you can see the excess of pattern sheets outside the chipboards, just fold them and stick it inside the chipboard I used red tacky tape for sticking them , you can also use white glue, now stick the inner part with another sheet of pattern paper and trim it off the excess ones outside the chipboard, and I have put magnetic clips on both the sides.


Step 3: For hanging charms, I used eyelet on top of the 11x3.5 size and chained them using jump rings, hanged charms in the chain using jump rings.


Step 4: Adhere pattern sheets as per your wish for inside pages now stick inner pages one after other, note a point while sticking adhere them opposite direction( if one page folded side is at the left then stick 2nd page, & folded side should be on right)


Step 5: for inner page decorating I just created a pocket and tags and I have fussy cut penguin from the pattern sheet and adhered them to the inner page, I used just for you embossed sentiment, so as I created pockets and put some tags and die cuts for other pages, adhered ribbon in center of the page & added die cuts to it.

Step 6: Used stitched oval die cut and frame, adhered at the center of the page and I used  corner die cuts, flower and leaf to decorate it.


Step7: Now adhere the accordion type folded pages to the center base (11x8).


Step8: I used fussy cut love you from Papericious pack and adhered it, for decoration I arranged flowers, leaves (flowers and leafs are made out of dies) added glitters in leaves and flowers.


Step9: Added few dew drops for leaves and flowers using glossy accents.

For adding glitters just sprinkle glitters over the flowers and leaves, if you are satisfied with the amount of glitters sprinkled just take a pic of it, now shutter all the glitters down, for adhering  glitters for 1 part of glue 1 part of water mix them well, it will become thinner, wet your brush and dip it in the mixture ,now just carefully splatter the mixture using brush (refer the pic taken by you ).


If you feel you want light sparkles then give slight coat, and now sparkle the glitters over it and shake the excess, if u feel anywhere excess amount of glitters adhered don’t worry use napkin and spread the excess.


And your project is ready. If any doubt, feel free to ask and leave your comments here.
