Easy folded mini album tutorial

This tutorial was published on Craft Gossip

This very easy and quick mini album is a perfect for teen girls workshops, quick last minute homemade
gift or can be used as a gift card holder

Step 1

Take one single piece of 12*12'' double sided patterned paper and score it first to half, and then open and score again to 3 thirds as shown on picture #1 . Now keep it opened over you cutting mat

Step 2

Make 2 single cuts as shown on the picture #2 –you just cut above and under section #2

Step 3

Fold the paper beginning from section 3 over section 6, and then fold it again over section 5

Now fold section 1 over section 4 and again over section 5 where the previous fold was done as shown on picture #3

Step 4 and a last one

Make some decorative cut on section #2: use your decorative scissors, make a template from your cutting die or do it just a free hand. Now fold this last cut section over the previous folds and make some closure. You can use ribbons, magnet, double sided scotch or whatever you have at home

Your mini is done, now go and add some pictures, embellishments, journaling or just put your gift card inside and add some greetings

And now a my finished project to show

This is absolutely adorable! I second "A Creative Operation" :) This would be cute for a bridal shower gift to have a bunch of mementos in there, cards and pictures from the shower. Thanks for sharing!
