Hues Of Happiness Drop Down Mini Album Tutorial


Hello, and welcome! I made another Drop Down Mini Album with the same design as the one I showed HERE. I thought I would include some pictures, and measurements so you can try one for yourself. Be sure and visit the previous blog post for more information, as I just made a smaller version than the one that inspired these cute Mini Albums. I can thank Mary Gunn of Craft Roulette. She showed a 12" x 12" Drop Down Album on her first episode of Craft Roulette. It is linked in the first post.

I started with an 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" piece of Gorgeous Grape Card Stock for the base. Score this piece at 2 3/4" on all four sides. Burnish the folds with a bone folder.

Next, remove some sections using a paper cutter, or scissors. You can take out more sections if desired. You can't leave too many sections attached because it would be too bulky to fold. I removed two squares on the left, and one on the right. 

Your album is now ready to decorate. I used pieces of the lovely Hues Of Happiness Paper that measure 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". I also used a comparable size square cut from the Stitched Shapes Die Set, as well as a circle that fit. Stamp images before adding them to your album. You can add stickers, die cuts, and even photos to personalize your album. 

I added a Belly Band to keep my albums closed. It measures 1 1/4" x 7", and had a 1" strip of Designer Series Paper on it. You could also use ribbon, or even a stretchy band. 

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you will try one of these cute albums for yourself!
