Quick Quotes Mini Album Fun!!!

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here and I have to thank my friend Annie for this idea, as I was trying to think of a project to do which I had not done in the past, that would be fun for anyone to make. And this is such a fun and easy project.

To make this mini album I am using the Serenade paper pack. I really do love this set. Take a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock and score all the way down on the 3", 6," and 9" marks.

Next you will turn the page one time, and again score on the 3", 6", and 9" marks; this will give you 16 3" x 3" boxes. 

The next step will be cutting and somehow I missed the photo on this one, but you cut like an M... in the first row cut up to the 3" line, the 2nd cut down to the 9" line and the last cut up to the 3" mark again. You will then start at the far left and fold up, when you reach the top fold under, then fold back down, fold under, fold back up, and repeat same for the last. You will then end up with a book similar to this image below.

Next step is to cut 2 pieces of chipboard at 3.25" x 3.25", and 2 pieces of coverstock at 4.25" x 4.25".

 You will then decide which side of the paper you would like to use as your cover, for this one I decided to use the light side as my cover since the inside pages are dark. Using double side adhesive I was able to adhere the cover to the chipboard all the way around.
 Another photo I did not take was the ribbon which I attached between the mini album pages and the covers. and this is the book with the covers on.
 Using 2 small strips .05" x 2" I made a binding in the back of the book so that it would not come apart here. I supposed you could leave this set up out and the book can open both directions.
 I then cut from the same cardstock used for the inside pages a 3" x 3" square for the front cover, and then used a tag from the kit. Using a Gina K Designs stamp and Mocha Mama Powderpuff Chalking ink I stamped the sentiment I wanted to use. The pearled brad is from a Quick Quotes kit from earlier in the year and this time I chose to leave it as the pearl color as it matches the original cover for this album.
 I really hope you enjoy this project as much as I did. Realistically it can be made in under an hour. Thank you for stopping by.
