Hi everyone, Christine here today with a mini pocket album. These albums are great to make as they consist of pockets to store photos, tickets and more – a great gift or perhaps a keepsake for yourself of a memorable event.
First cut two chipboard covers – these measure 5” x 4 ½”. Then cut four pieces of your choice of patterned paper to match the chipboard sizing – I chose Kaisercraft Bow and Arrow papers, affix to front and inside covers using E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable.
Put these to one side and then create your inner pockets. Cut various colored card 8″ x 8″, score at 4″, rotate and score at 3.2″. Fold longest section first, then fold in half – this will create pockets. The open side goes to the spine of your mini album.
Now for the decorating. I affixed a tag to the front cover using 3D Foam Squares White, Regular.
To bind the pocket album, punch holes 1¼“ inches in from each edge of the cover and also hole punch the pockets. Insert book rings. It’s a good idea to do this before you decorate the pockets so you can see where your holes are. I decorated the inner pockets by die cutting aperture shapes and adding patterned paper behind with Crafty Power Tape.
Have fun creating pockets for photos, quotes, tickets…the list is endless 🙂
