Tutorial Tuesday-Mini Album

Hello everyone and welcome to another Tutorial Tuesday!  Erica here with you this week to bring you another one of my favorite mini albums to make!  A couple months ago I shared one way to create an accordion mini album using a sheet of 12x12 cardstock and you can see that full post HERE.  This month I want to share with you all how to create a similar mini using a plain old office file folder.
Here is a list of supplies you will need to create and decorate your mini album.

  • file folder
  • scoring board
  • scoring tool
  • wet adhesive
  • variety of pattern papers
  • matching embellishments
  • photos
Instead of listing all the directions with photos I thought I would do a video for you all instead this month.  I hope you can follow along and please leave any comments or questions for me down below and I will answer as soon as possible!

To dress up my mini album I used the September 2014 Nesting Components kit.  I am in love with this beautiful kit!  The paper collection and embellishments from My Minds Eye are gorgeous and Carrie has hand picked some amazing pieces that coordinate beautifully with these two products!  I also pulled out a handful of Paper Wings Productions stamps to add to my album as well including the brand new Say It stamp set!  Here are some photos of my completed mini album.

I love how this album has a ton of pockets that allow you to add more tags, photos and ephemera.  I also added one of the mini envelopes that came in this months Nesting Components kit to the inside of my mini that will house some journaling tags.  I hope you enjoyed my video and my mini album this month.  If you have not already purchased this months kit you can head on over to the Paper Wings Productions shop and get one today!  There are only a few kits left and I think this is my favorite kit so far so act fast!  If you give this mini album I try I would love to see your take on it so leave me the link below or enter it into this months challenge for your chance to win a gift certificate to the PWP shop!  Thanks so much for stopping today and remember to let your creativity take flight!
