One Sheet Mini Album
 Thank you for selecting my album as Top 3 - Nov 10, 2015

Howdy Crafters -  I am on a mini-album kick! I have been checking several You Tube videos for creating Mini Albums and I found  one that uses one 12x12 sheet of cardstock and has pockets! 

For this mini album, I have tags, blank papers to write on, and one stamped insert as well as glitter glue, ribbon, button, some NEW stuff, and much more. I have listed the items found on each page in my recipe. This is my "Fly by the Seat of My Pants Mini Album." For this album I did not make a binding by gluing the backs of the album - I will work on one with a binding in the future.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you create your own mini album - it really is easy to do and I like that this one has pockets!  - have a blessed day. ~ Gail ~

Mini Album Recipe
Click HERE For tutorial - Please Note: I used my Scor-Pal to score all line for this project - you can follow the tutorial and fold - but for me it works better doing the scoring - 6 inches, 6 inches, 3 inches, 2 inches -you will understand the scoring once you view the tutorial.

A Bone Folder is A Must for this project.
