Mini Tutorial

Good Morning! My name is Angie Gutshall and I'm excited to be a contributor to What's Scrapping! I little bit about me: I have 4 kids and have been married to my sweetheart for 10 years. I'm currently on the DT for Sweet Peach Crop Shop. I love to scrap and I don't only do layouts; I enjoy making canvas, mini albums, cards, and altering anything I can :)

Today I have a mini album tutorial for you. I sat down this week and worked on the measurements for this so I could share it with you. This would make a great "brag" book for grandparents or a nice little mini to send to someone.

Here it is open.

Here it is with the flaps open.

Here is close up of one of the pictures.

First cut your paper 12 x 4 inches. Score paper at 3 1/2, 3 1/2, and 1 1/2.

Then cut your flaps 3 x 7 inches and fold in half.

Then adhere the flaps between the scores.

Then cut a piece 7 x 1 inches for your band that goes around it.

Last just add pictures and embellishments. The bigger/thicker the embellsihment the harder to close. So place them where they won't hit each other when closing ;)
Thanks for having me!
