I call this the triple pocket mini scrapbook because each page has 3 pockets! Makes sense to me! LOL There is one pocket on the top of each page, one in the front, and one in the back. When you add up six or more pages you can see how many pockets there are going to be! By the way, these are way easier to create than I ever thought possible and they make the most charming gifts imaginable. Well, don't all mini scrapbook albums?
For each page that you want to create take a piece of 12 by 12 double sided scrapbooking paper and fold it in half horizontally.
Now open it back up. Fold each side in 3-1/2 inches. Score these creases with a bone folder.
Open back out again. Cut on the fold line of the original horizontal fold up to these new folds on each side as shown below.
Fold from cut line at a diagonal on all four inside edges. Simple Simon!
Fold each side in so that they overlap as shown below. Adhere with double sided tape or use your
to apply adhesive. This tool is awesome!
Fold mini album page in half with the pockets on the outside. Use adhesive across the bottom and the left side.
You will bind on the left. You now have 3 pockets - one on each side
and one on the top. Repeat this process for however many pages you
want in in your mini scrapbook. I would recommend about 6 pages. If you
use too many it might become too thick.
For the covers, cover chipboard slightly larger (about 1/2 inch all around) than your pages with scrapbooking paper. Cut diagonal corners and fold over, using your bone folder. Adhere down. Add an additional piece of matching scrapbook paper to the empty spot and your covers are complete.
Bind the book together with your
or whatever way you wish to bind it. Several different bookbinding techniques will work for this project.
Fill the pockets with tags and photos.
And of course you will want to decorate the front as desired.
That is it! You have just created a triple pocket mini album! Wasn't that easy? And fun to boot! Show us your Bind-It-All Minis!
