SIMPLY SPRING | Mini Album with Virginia

I love making mini-albums with little inter-active elements like pockets and flip outs. I've used the beautiful patterned papers and embellishments from the Simply Spring collection for my project. The mini-album I'm sharing today repurposes the regular file folder! A file folder is strong and sturdy, it can hold up really well to being the base for a mini-album.

I've included a simple tutorial template to show how the file folder is scored and cut to create the album base. There is an additional Step 7 to create the album cover.  A separate piece measuring 8x5 is attached to the little flap (Step 6) to create your album cover.  If you have lots of dimension in your album you may need to make a few vertical score lines to create a spine so that the album cover can close flat.

Hope this inspires you to search out some file folders and craft your own mini album joy!
