I've been wanting to make a flip album mini scrapbook for awhile. I've
been seeing these mini scrapbooks all over the scrapbooking sphere of the internet. They're just so
cute and they're not that difficult at all.
Cut solid scrapbooking cardstock as follows:
1 piece measuring 6 inch x 12 inch
3 pieces measuring 5-3/4 inches x 12 inches
Cut contrasting solid cardstock to four pieces 5-1/2 inches square each
Score the piece of 6 inch by 12 inch at 2-3/4 inches and 3 inches on one end. Flip it over and score it on the other end at 2-3/4 inches and 3 inches also. This is your cover.
Score the three pieces of 5-3/4 inches and 12 inch sheets at 3 inches on each end.
Place double sided tape on both of the 3 inch ends of one of the 5-3/4 inch and 12 inch pieces of cardstock.
Adhere the other two pieces of 5-3/4 inch by 12 inch pieces of cardstock to the one with the double sided tape so that it looks like this.
Fold the flaps in. This is the inside of your mini album. Take your 6 inch by 12 inch cover and put double sided tape just inside the middle score lines.
Place the inside of your mini scrapbook onto this double sided tape.
Attach one of the 5-1/2 inch squares to the inside first flap, which will create your cover.
Adhere a piece of ribbon as shown using regular tape.
Run double sided tape down both sides and attach another piece of 5-1/2 inch square cardstock on top. This is now your completed cover.
Attach another 5-1/2 inch square to the back flap to create the back flap of the scrapbook.
Attach ribbon as shown.
Adhere the final 5-1/2 inch square over the ribbon.
Cut patterned scrapbooking papers as follows:
6 @ 5-1/2 inch Square
8 @ 5-1/2 inches x 2-1/2 inches
Adhere these to all the inside pages.
Embellish as desired. Don't these mini albums make scrapbooking more fun than ever?
You can create these in many different themes as well. See our theme section to get all kinds of ideas for possible themes.
