Accordion Fold Mini Album

Back in March I shared this mini accordion album I created using the How Sweet It Is DSP (retiring at the end of May). But it didn't have any photos in it when I shared it. You can see the original post here. I thought I'd share an update now that the album is filled with photos and journaling.

Let's start with how I'm storing it. I decided it would look really cute standing up in a little bakers box.

I love that the box has a window so you can see what's inside. The outside of the box is really simple. I just added some dsp, ribbon and a little tag.

Then you open the box to reveal the mini album. Here's a look at the pages.

The first page has a little pocket in it with a journaling tag and a photo with some journaling on the back, sharing my first 'stalker' experience:) Shout out to Christine Dionne if she's reading.

The next page has a tip in that opens up to reveal more photos and some journaling.

The Labeler Alphabet is one of my favourite sets. It's such a simple little alphabet set but it just provides so many opportunities for journaling and titles.

And then here's a photo of the front bit all the way open.

And then you flip it over.

And then all the way open on the back.

It's such a quick and easy album to make, created from one 12" x 12" piece of card stock! Just cut it in three 3" x 12" pieces, score each piece at 3", 6" and 9" and assemble the pieces together. Voila! The base of the album is done! If you'd like me to film a video showing you how it comes together just comment below and I can do that.

Have a creative day!
