You’ll Want to Join Our Gang!

By Mara (Oceanlover)

Hi everyone! I’m going to show you how to make a great little mini album…from just 1 piece of 12×12 paper for the base. Quick and easy, would make a fantastic Mother’s Day Gift, teacher appreciation gift, thank you for being a friend gift…the possibilities are endless!!

First, pick a piece of 12×12 paper.  You’ll also need a bone folder to make the creases.

Cut the paper in half to make 2 6×12 pieces.

Score each 6×12 piece at 4 inch intervals. Fold both ways to make the folds nice and ‘folded’.

Overlap the last and first panel of each piece to create one continuous accordian piece.

And there you have it…a great mini album! Now embellish with whatever papers and embellies you want. Again, i’m using all product from a past Scrapbooker’s Club House kit. I made this for my youngest brother who we don’t see very often. He made an impromptu visit to us this spring and had so much fun with my kids!

I used the white rubons to add some fun to the acrylic crowns in the kit.

I also used stickles to embellish the acrylic pieces, adds so much fun!

Added rubons to the photo and more stickles on the acrylic pieces!

You can hold the album together with a button and ribbon, or have it open out on display.

There you have it! The easiest mini album ever!!!
