Guest DT Kriti: Triple Pockets Album Tutorial

Hello Crafty friends,Today we are presenting Our first Guest DT Kriti Mishra with her tutorial. Over to you Kriti.

Today I'm so happy to be a  guest DT on India's one of the most prestigious blog and a store Rainbow Craftykari. Today I'm here with a album tutorial which has a different pockets and fold. Grab your coffee and kick back on your favorite chair as we are going to start an detailed tutorial onTriple Pockets Album.

There are five basic points to keep in mind while making a mini album: 

1. Size of the album.
2. Number of pages.
3. Type of pages.
4. Color coordination.
5. Embellishments. 

This mini album measure 6" x 5". There are three pages. The style I have used for pages is Triple pocket with Tri fold flap(The style of all the pages has been kept identical so that the tutorial do not look heavy). Colors I have zeroed in on Pretty Purple and Sunny Yellow. And some embellishments which are listed below . Hope you all enjoy making it.


Step 1:- Take 3 chipboard pieces. Two of them are 6" x 5" in size, which will be the front and back for the album and one of them will be 6" x 2" in size, which will be the spine of this album. 

Step 2:- Attach all the three pieces with a piece of cello tape from both the sides, leaving a little bit gap between the chipboard pieces so that it can bend easily (This step is done so that when we cover it, chipboard pieces will not move and we will be able to cover it properly). 

Step 3:- Now cover it with the cardstock of size 8" x 14".


Step 1 :- Take a cardstock of size 5- 1/2" x 5", and start scoring at every 1/2" on the 5" side. 

Step 2:- Then, leaving an 1/2" space, pinch up the 1" score line to make the first hinge then leaving 1/2" space for gusset now pinch up the 2 - 1/2" score line for the second hinge then leave 1/2" space for gusset and lastly pinch 4" score line to make the third hinge. This process will make three hinges. 

Step 3:- Now, attach the hinge with the glue on the spine


Step 1:- Trim two pieces of cardstock. First of size 9 - 1/2" x 9", to make triple pockets and second of size 13" x 5- 1/2", to make tri fold flaps. 

Step 2:- Take the first piece n the longer side, score at 4- 1/2" and 9". Now, rotate the paper by 90° and score at 5- 1/2". 

Step 3:- Next, apply score tape to the 1/2" tab on the right and cut a notch at the 5 - 1/2" score line. 

Step 4:- Crease all the score lines well. Next, remove the tape backing, fold the left panel over and adhere the 1/2" tabs. 

Step 5:- Cut and adhere a mat for the top section (Size of mats should be less than 1/4" of the size of the page. Suppose size of the page is 3 x 4, then mat should be 2- 3/4" x 3- 3/4"). 

Step 6:- Apply tape along each side of the bottom section, remove the backing tape, fold up and adhere. Now, adhere a mat for this section. 

Step 7:- You now have three pockets, one on the bottom side, other directly behind it (both of them can be used for journaling)and a top loading pocket(can be used as a photo mat),which is larger in size.

Step 8:- Attach this to the left side of the first hinge after removing the backing tape. 

Step 9:- Now to create the tri fold flap, trim a piece of cardstock of size 13" x 5- 1/2". Then on the long side, score at 1/2", 5" and 9- 1/2". Crease all the score lines well. Now, adhere the flap to the right side of the first hinge by putting left most 1/2" tab on the hinge. 

Step 10:- Now, cut mats and adhere to each panel. Turnover, then cut and adhere mats for the remaining panels. 

Step 11:- Repeat all the steps to make 2 more pockets and 2 more tri fold flaps.

Step 12:- After adhering all the three pages, mat the back side of the cover of the album, by putting a ribbon and then hide the gusset also with the pattern paper. 


Step 1:- There are three pages in this album, which have three pockets, so there will be minimum 9 tags. Mat them accordingly.
Sizes of the tags
1. 4- 3/4" x 4- 1/4"(Three tags)
2. 2- 3/4" x 3" (Three tags)
3. 2-3/4" x 4- 1/4" (Three tags) 

Step 2:- As a finishing touch for the tags, take a thread of around 11" size of the coordinating color and fold it twice and tie around a clip. Attach the clip to the tags. 

Now tags are ready to go into the pockets.

Here are few inside view of the  album

Front Cover

For front cover I had adhesive a mat of purple color and then pasted a yellow color burlap sheet measuring 5'' by 4-1/2''. Then cut a piece measuring 5'' by 1'' from purple color burlap sheet and paste a yellow color lace on it.

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!!
