Mini Album Madness: 2 Papers= 1 Album

Hello!  I'm sharing a sweet mini album today at 
LITTLE YELLOW BICYCLE
with just two of their double-sided 12X12 papers and fun embellishments from the
FERN & FOREST BOY COLLECTION


Here's a quick and easy little tutorial to get you going:
(I've also created this same-styled mini album using only one paper)

1- Select two matching 12X12 double-sided patterned papers.  
For each paper you will score down the middle at 6"; turn paper and score at 4" and at 8".
 
2- Next, cut along the 6" score mark up to the 4" score line only; repeat for the second sheet of paper.
 
 3- Fold paper accordion style (see photo 1 or 2)

4- Decorate each page before adhering pages together with a high-tac adhesive
 (I used Sookwang 1/2" tape) (see photo 4)

5- From left to right, the first flap adheres to the next flap; these are pages 1 and 2.  
The next set of pages will contain the section that has the intact fold at the top; adhere.  
The final two flaps will be joined to the first two flaps of the second sheet of paper. 
 The last two flaps on the second sheet will adhere together.  This will give you a 10 page album.
 
 Little Yellow Bicycle's double-sided papers are the perfect thickness for such a mini album.  
Try changing up the score marks to create different-sized mini albums! 
  
For the inner pages I used the "5 Things Pocket" that are available for most-all 
Little Yellow Bicycle Collections.
