Here's hoping that all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving had a wonderful gathering with friends/family!
Today I'm sharing a mini album that I made a few months ago with the use of Authentique's 'Legacy' collection. I call this mini a 'Tri-Fold Mini Album'. It's a relatively simple album to make but provides the access to store several pictures, journaling & even a sentiment if so desired.
These pictures of me & my son were taken this past Mother's Day. I loved all the different action shots & wanted to showcase them in a quick & simple way. While navigating through Pinterest, I found a tutorial for this sort of mini album. I'll supply the list to this tutorial at the end of the post as well as a brief video showcasing this mini. The tutorial is in French--but luckily with the help of 3 years of French taken at college & the photos provided in the tutorial I was able to easily create this mini.
What I liked the most about this mini is that you can either store it closed or display it on a desk or shelf standing up as shown in this screen shot. I have my mini album displaying on my desk at work. So this mini also makes for a nice keepsake or gift.
The photo shown here is of the back of the mini where I've included two photos of my son & husband along with 1 pocket to store journaling and 1 sentiment.
This mini is designed to hold 8+ photos--depending on your needs/preferences. Each square measures 3" inches x 3" inches--so the photos measure about 2 3/4" inches x 2 3/4" inches. The album itself measures 3 1/4" inches wide by 9" 1/4" inches high & it has medium chipboard covers.
For those of you that are saavy with the paper & scissors--here's the link to the tutorial. For those of you that are not too savvy with the paper & scissors--I'm offering to make this mini in my Etsy shop 'The Kraft Nook'. I don't usually make this sort of offer because I don't have sufficient time to create made to order albums or altered projects. However, I found this mini simple & quick enough to make that I feel I can squeeze it into a typical busy week. It can be made in any theme--if interested, just send me a message via Etsy & we can discuss the design of the mini.
Here's a video showcasing the mini.
Supplies: Paper - Authentique, Embellishments - Prima, Ribbon - May Arts, Flowers - The Felt Shoppe, Prima, Other - Medium Weight Chipboard
