Hello friends, it’s Lucile! I find you today to make a mini album! This mini album is easy to create and you will only need three items: a pad of paper, stickers and ephemera. If you want to see the full tutorial, check out the video at the end of the article.
The album is square and opens to the front in the center. To close it, I sewed a thread on one side. To hide the seam I sewed three butterflies. It also helps to give volume to the cover. I tied a tag at the end of the thread. To close it just wrap the thread around the butterfly.
The album is built as an accordion. I added a thickness to each page to be able to add volume without distorting the album. The accordion album allows to put photos on both sides and to have two different part in the album.
I decorated the first page with stickers from the collection. For my title, I used letters cut from a paper. When you do not have a lot of embellishment do not hesitate to decorate items in your papers!
You can also use cards to decorate your pages. Most collections have papers with several cards to cut. It’s a great solution for decorating your scrapbooking albums or pages.
Finally, I present a page that mixes all these little tricks! It is possible to create mini albums without having a lot of material, just have a little imagination and a good pair of scissors! I hope this mini album and these little tips will have pleased you. Feel free to watch the video if you want to re-create the same mini album! I’ll see you soon for a new creation.
