Spring Mini Album Page Tutorial

Okey Dokey, Crafters...Good Morning!  I have the tutorial for how I made the pages in my Spring Mini album!


This is an open view of the pages.


This shows the first flap lifted to reveal another pocket.  The scoring and cutting follows...


Oh, Yeah, it is also confession time.  I don't know how to get a PDF on the blog.  So, I made this lovely diagram on my computer, took a picture of it, and imported it that way.  If you click on it, it will enlarge, and you should be able to read it.  Ahhhh, technology!


 I hope this makes sense.  The purple lines are scored, then the line that the red is hovering over, is the only place to cut...just that one 5" line.


Fold up the bottom 2" score, burnish well.  You will glue on the two sides of this 2" piece and in the 1/8" space to create the pockets, but wait until you read the whole post and do all of the scoring so you can really see what it will look like.


Fold over the left side, burnish well.  You will have two scores here, it give you a 1/8" space for more room so your book will lie more flat.  This back side here will also be how you attach it to the previous page (or to the cover).  Open back up.


Fold the top part down...burnish...


Then fold that piece over...


Then fold the little 1 1/2" piece back again.  This little strip is glued on the top and the bottom creating the little pocket, glue the 3 1/2" piece on the top and bottom, creating the other pocket.  This flap lifts up to show the big pocket underneath.  The left side is glued on three sides (on the back side) to attach to the previous page, and also has a pocket!



I sure hope that made sense.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Stay Crafty, my friends!
