(Video) How To Create a Quick, Easy & Cute DIY Mini Album – Lydia’s Crafty Corner

by Lydia Evans

Hello there, everyone! Happy Friday. Lydia here. Today, I'll be sharing something a little different. Instead of a card, I'll be sharing a cute little mini album that you can create for yourself or maybe give away as a gift.

Cute, right?! For the pages, I started out with a piece of 12×12 paper from the Enjoy The Ride Collection. I scored this at 3″, 6″, and 9″, then turned it and scored at 3″, 6″, and 9″ again. Now, the paper will be divided into twelve 3″ squares. Fold along the lines to reinforce the score lines. Cut along the top score line but only until you get to the last 3″ square; you still want it to be connected to the whole piece. Now, cut the middle score line in the opposite direction, but again, leave the last 3″ uncut. Now, cut the third score line the same as the first. Add some adhesive to the back of the piece and concertina together to create the pages (I show this process in the video below).

Once I had the pages, I cut another piece of patterned paper to 3 1/4 x 7″. I scored this at 3 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ to create the cover. Before adhering the pages into the cover, I added a little twine that will help keep the book closed.

Now, it's ready to decorate! I used elements from the Enjoy The Ride Collection but you can use anything you like. Add photos and quotes to make it truly your own.

For a video, to see how this came together, please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

Great video of the process. I like how the pages come together so quickly. Good use of the embelishments.
