Using just a few pieces of leftover patterned paper and sheets of heavy card stock, this mini album is so quick and easy to put together!  The assemblage is similar to a child's board book and is also very accommodating  for layered embellishments!

To begin I cut five sheets of 110lb. white card stock to measure:
9.75" X 6.25"
9.5" X 6.25"
9.25" X 6.25"
9" X 6.25"
8.75" X 6.25"
Next, I placed each of the sheets onto a scoring board. Each sheet was scored at 4.25" and then turned 180" and scored again at 4.25".  After folding all of the sheets along the score lines, I started building the pages beginning with the longest sheet first.  I added an extreme double-sided tape between all of the sheet's score lines and began assembling the pages.  

For all of the pages I used a 4" X 6" mat of patterned paper  and adhered to the center of the page.  As shown above, I cut a small strip of 1.25" X 6" paper and attached.

Below is a peek at all of the inner-pages that are photo-ready!  

I decided to leave a few of the pages blank so that larger photos could be added.  
The top of the album was finished off with a trio of Jelly Clips and now it's all ready for gift giving!

Thanks for joining me today!
