Accordion Mini Album


This cute little 6” x 6” mini album is another concept of Laura Denison from Follow the Paper Trail. (You can find her video by clicking HERE)

To make this mini album you will need five 6” x 9” manila (or white if you can find them) envelopes. I purchased mine from the local Wal-Mart in a pack of 6. After removing the metal closure, both ends are trimmed so the final “tube” measures 6” x 8 ½”. Each of the five envelopes is scored at 6” and folded. To attach the envelopes together, you will be attaching a short end to the back of a long end. You can see an example of that in the following picture. (I have highlighted the way the envelopes are stacked together with a black line.)


This design will give you a big 5 ¾” tag for each large pocked and a smaller tag for each short pocket. I can’t remember what size I cut the smaller tags, this was a gift and I didn’t write the information down before it was wrapped. Ooops!

All of the papers, cardstock and pattern papers as well as the ribbon are from the Sun-Kissed Autumn paper collection by Gina K Designs. The tag on the front has Stickles on the punched letter to add some sparkle and shine.

Here are all of the inside pages of the book:







After flipping to the page above, you will see you are the end of the front of the book…keep flipping to the back cover…


And around to the backside of the album for even more space…





Here’s a view of the front pages of the book…


And here’s the backside…


Sadly, the pictures I took Christmas Eve night do not even begin to do the color of these papers justice. They are all so very pretty, and such a good quality of paper as well.


Thank you for dropping by and please do come back for a visit anytime!
