This album measures 8" high, and 7 1/2" wide. I used some papers I found from Office Depot that are 11"x17". The brand is "Neenah Creative Collection". It is 32lb paper so it is heavier duty, not quite cardstock but better than standard paper, and it comes in black, kraft, and white.
ADHERE THE RIGHT SIDE 1" FLAP DOWN FIRST BEFORE FOLDING UP AND ADHERING THE POCKETS!!
I scored and cut the second piece exactly the opposite of the above piece. (Please ignore the length of the hinges. I goofed!)
The third piece is scored at 1", 8", 8 1/2", 9" and 16". Then at 3" on the bottom. Cut as shown. The pockets will be formed with the 1" tabs on the side and the 1/2" tabs in the middle.
When everything is scored, cut folded and adhered, take the two cut edges of the pages and stand them up. Put two strips of score tape on the inside of the 1/2" scores on the third piece, and adhere them down. You do NOT want to adhere anything between the first two pieces. Just adhere the cut edge into the 1/2" score. Line up the pockets as shown.
I used My Minds Eye papers for most of the book, with one page of Recollections. This book is not good for a lot of embellishments, so decorations with paper, stickers and tags is a must since it folds pretty flat.
I hope you liked this book! Let me know if you have any questions.
Stay Scary, My Friends!
