Mini Accordion Christmas Album VIDEO

Hi Friends! If you're looking for another last-minute Christmas gift to make for your friends and family, you're going to love this project! These mini accordion albums (inspired by Jana's Papercraft) are fast, fun & easy to make! You can make these for any occasion, season or holiday simply by changing up the colours, papers and stamps that you use. You could fill these albums with motivational quotes, journal some memories or even turn the pages into coupons (ie: for dinner & a movie, lunch date, home-cooked meal, massage, etc). Here's my video tutorial for you:

Measurements for cutting and scoring:
***Notes: you only need two pieces of the 2" x 11" strips, if you wish to cover the inside front and back flaps, as shown in my video tutorial. You can also just cut two pieces that measure 2" x 4" - I just had an extra 2" x 11" strip handy, so that's what I used. Also, in the video I mentioned that I used a full sheet of 6" x 6" DSP, when in fact I only used half a sheet for each album.

Here are some of the mini albums I've made:

In my video, I showed how I filled this album with photos. I also mentioned "PicMonkey" as the program I used to create and edit a photo collage for the album. You can check out PicMonkey here. I use this awesome program to edit ALL my photos on my blog and youtube, to create my youtube thumbnails, as well as graphics for my business and more!

I stamped the inside of this album with the Snow Front set (shown in the photo below) and I'll finish it by adding holiday quotes. I also used the Barn Door Stamp Set and coordinating dies for the wreath on the front cover, and the sentiment is from "Playful Penguins". 

Here's a non-Christmas version that I also showed in my video. I've since finished the front cover, using the Four-Petal, Sprig & Leaf punches and I added a "Perennial Essence Floral Centre" on the flower. The sentiment is from the "From Our Home to Yours" set. I stamped the inside pages with the "Love What You Do" and "Beautiful Friendship" sets.

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
