Hello Boardbook Mini Album

Happy Saturday!
I shared this so-fun-to-make mini album over at
DOODLEBUG DESIGNS
a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share here too!
I also have it up for SALE in my Etsy Shop :)

Using just a few pieces of leftover patterned paper and sheets of heavy card stock,
this mini album is so quick and easy to put together!  The assemblage is similar to a
 child's board book and is also very accommodating  for layered embellishments!


To begin I cut five sheets of 110lb. white card stock to measure:
9.75" X 6.25"
9.5" X 6.25"
9.25" X 6.25"
9" X 6.25"
8.75" X 6.25"
Next, I placed each of the sheets onto a scoring board. Each sheet was scored at 4.25"
and then turned 180" and scored again at 4.25".  After folding all of the sheets along
 the score lines, I started building the pages beginning with the longest sheet first.
I added an extreme double-sided tape between all of the sheet's score lines and
 began assembling the pages.  



For all of the pages I used a 4" X 6" mat of patterned paper  and adhered to the center of the page. 
 As shown above, I cut a small strip of 1.25" X 6" paper and attached.

Below is a peek at all of the inner-pages that are photo-ready!  










I decided to leave a few of the pages blank so that larger photos could be added.  
The top of the album was finished off with a trio of Jelly Clips and now
 it's all ready for gift giving!

Have a wonderful weekend!
