One Sheet Mini-Album

Here is a quick way to make a mini-album from just a single sheet of paper.  This episode will show you how to create the booklet from either cardstock or patterned paper.  Double sided patterned paper is my favorite for this project because you get to see both sides in different areas of your little book!

Although this sample has a definite holiday theme you can create one for any occasion, or any reason!  You can use little pictures, sayings or quotes, journaling, a tiny art journal… you get to decide!

What better way to use bits and pieces to embellish this little album, than pull from your stash!  Plus, what are you ever going to do with all that patterned paper you are “saving” for just the right project!  Come on, use one!  This IS the project a perfect piece of paper has been waiting for!  Wow, say that fast several times!  Create something fun, and then come over and join and post to our new Artful Adventures Facebook Group.

The next episode will show you how to use different sized of paper, other than a 12×12 sheet.  You will also learn how to determine the number of pages and the page sizes when creating your one sheet mini-album from any size paper!
