One Page Mini Album

Easy one page mini accordion album

Learn to make this cute and quick little one page album.
Photo of album opened.
Take your 12x12 piece of cardstock and score it at 4" and 8"
Next turn your paper 90 degrees and score again at 4" and 8"
Your paper should now be a grid of 9 squares each one measuring 4x4.
Now cut the cardstock into 3 strips each 4x12
See Photo Below
Next Take one of the strips and cut one of the squares from it.
See photo below

Next fold the two pieces with three squares in an accordion fashion.
See photo below
Fold the one strip with two squares in half at the score.
See photo below

To assemble, position each piece like the photo demonstrates below.
When attached together, your album should now look like this.

Photo of Covers.
Covers can be made from chipboard or even some sturdy cardstock.
The covers should be 4.25" x 4.25" in size.

Just a note: you will want to make your patterned paper 6x6 to allow it to cover your chipboard if you want to "wallpaper" your covers with a corresponding paper.
Make sure and apply the ribbon across the inside of the back cover before attaching the inside of the album to the cover. See photo below.

Now you can have fun and attach your mats, embellishments and memories!
