Inspiration: 5 mini albums from just one 12 inch sheet!

All the templates, tutorials and mini albums that are floating around on the web.. I decided to make a short video in which I show you how to make 5 different mini albums from just one 12″ sheet of paper! You can use whatever paper you like, black, patterned, anything. The only requirement is that it has to be a 12 x 12 inch sheet.

You can embellish, paint, distress or stamp in the albums as much as you like. The templates that I have made all allow you to make pockets, cut out a thumb hole, make a cover with patterned paper, stitch or staple the spine, put tags or photos in the pockets, punch nice borders with border punches, add charms, tie them up with string or with small clasp.. The possibilities are endless!

This mini album is great for using up pretty paper you have left. You can embellish it with just 2 pieces of patterned paper or go all out with gorgeous embellishments. It does need a little tweaking when you are done folding it, cut off pieces here and there to make everything fit. Distress the edges (or not!) and start decorating! I used this template on my Vintage Circus, Fortune Teller and Sweet Nothings albums, so check out those videos to see how I’ve done it!

You can cut off the top flaps with a corner chomper or with a fancy border punch. Make sure to first add your desired closing (buttons, magnets, velcro) on the right pocket before you glue it closed. I have used this template on my Tea Time and Tropical Travelogue mini albums, you can see me decorating them in my videos.

This album is quite long, so you can flip it 90 degrees and also use it that way. This album has top and side pockets, which is great for adding tags, paper paraphernalia or photos. You can round of the corners if you like. Tie it up with a string or staple or stitch the spine. Lovely and easy.

I really love the simplicity and the charm of this super easy mini album. Each page has pockets AND top and side pockets! Great for storing photos or tags. Make a cover with patterned paper or chipboard, or tie the album close with a pretty string or Baker’s Twine.

This is the cutest album of all, because it is so small & chunky. Each page has either a top or a side pocket, which is really neat. This album can also be tied with a string or put between two pieces of chipboard. Decorate away!
