One sheet mini album

I wanted to get back to basics and create a mini album using one sheet of 12 x 12 paper.  There are several different folds out there, I know, but this is the most simple.  I also wanted to create my own background using paint and stamps for no other reason than it’s fun to do.

So here it is, my one sheet mini or is it a rather over sized card?!!

The first thing I did was use a sheet of bright green scrapbook paper and painted turquise, yellow and white acrylic paint onto it with a brayer.  When that was dry I stamped randomly with stamps from the Graphic Borders and Repeat After Me sets.

I folded my paper in half, turned it 90° and folded in half and in half again so I ended up with 8 rectangle shaped pages.

Cut the centre 2 folds where the 4 middle pages meet.

Fold the paper back in half as shown.  As you press down the creases you’ll end up with a star shape.  Simply fold these up into book pages.

I stitched a very simple 3 hole binding and decorated it with stamps.

I added a little bit of machine stitching and some washi tape.

The image stamps I used are Garden Sketches, Striped Stems, Funky Flowers, Lovely Houses, Rustic Outlines and Border Lines.

I hope it inspired you to make one of your own.
