On the 8th day of Christmas....

Welcome to the 8th day of Christmas @ DIVA'S!

My project to share with you all is a real simple mini Album. I have used Little Yellow Bycicle 25 days of Christmas range that Michelle kindly supplied me with from the SHOP. It was great to use this range for this type of mini because the papers were so thick and heavy and the added bonus was that they were double sided! So here are the instructions....


STEP 1: Cut a 12 x 4 inch strip of Patterned paper. Fold every inch along the paper (as shown in the 1st photo)

Step 2: Use double sided tape to adhere the folds together (as shown in the 2nd photo)

Step 3: Cut five 4x4inch pices of patterned paper and adhere them into the concertina to make the pages of your album ( as shown in the 3rd photo)

Step 4: Fold a 2.5 x 4 inch piece of Patterned paper in half to create a 1.25 x 4 inch bind for your album. Use double sided tape to adhere it to the spine of the album.


Thats all the hard work done! now the fun stuff.... Choose your photos and embellies and fill the album with memories!

It may look hard but once you start you will realise how easy it is. It took me only an hour from start to finish and that included filling it with all the LYB goodies!

If you have any question, ask away! either here or in the christmas thread @ Diva's and I will be sure to help you out!

Here is my finished Mini Album, I have used all the Little Yellow Bicycle papers 25 days of Christmas range. the only thing I added were Alphas! It was a fantastic range to use... I loved it!

I hope you liked the Mini Album and give it a go its so easy!
Merry Christmas to you all and get SCRAPPING!!
