Three Page Mini Album 12x12's #2 

This adaptable three-page mini album is perfect for paper crafters in various ways, from junk journals and happy mail to craft shows, gifts, or even as special occasion photo book favors. As a bonus, this enjoyable project includes a total of five ephemera pieces and 4-7 pockets, all customizable to your liking. Once you grasp the beginner-friendly construction process, you'll be inspired to explore more creative ways to create each page and infuse your unique style.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 12″ x 12″ double-sided scrapbook paper (preferably non-directional for ease).
  • Scoreboard or scoring tool.
  • Glue.
  • Scissors.

Start with a 12″ x 12″ sheet of scrapbook paper, preferably non-directional and double-sided for beginners. Score the paper at 4″ and 8″, then turn it a quarter in either direction and score again at 4″ and 8″. Cut along the score lines up to the middle to create the basic structure, as demonstrated in the video. Now, you can plan where to place your pockets and which squares to cut for ephemera. The tutorial showcases various techniques, so feel free to experiment with different cuts, folds, and flips. If your folds are stubborn, there are tips included to help.

Once your pockets are set, cut and arrange your ephemera as desired. Depending on how many items you want to include, choose a suitable closure for the mini album. For instance, using a hidden paper clip can add a special touch if you're gifting the album or sending it as happy mail. The mini album lays flat if you stick to the demonstrated pieces, ensuring a neat and compact finish.

If you're a fan of mini albums, remember that you can create them in different sizes using simple math for project planning. The creative opportunities are vast with this quick and enjoyable mini album, making it a favorite among paper crafters.

Happy paper crafting!
