One Sheet Wonder #3: Mini Scrapbook

This is the mini of mini albums and boy is it cute!  What makes it extra cute? The adorable baby at the center of it all – Mr. Brady! I think I’ve mentioned my coworkers have the cutest babies ever in a previous post. Well this little guy is a nephew, so he’s part of the work family.

This one sheet wonder was probably the first mini album I found that you could make, but I didn’t think it had as much dimension as the other ones I have already blogged about. However, I think I might be wrong about my first impression. This mini album fits in the palm of my hand – measuring 3 inches x 3 inches and it’s super sturdy.

To make your own mini album, you can watch the video tutorial I used here. I will warn you that she made a mistake when pre-taping the album, so don’t add tape until you watch the whole video. I found it easier to tape after I folded the album competely.

Depending on how you choose to secure the folds (meaning which direction is the inside of the album versus the outside), you can have more pages than I have in this album. I chose to use the lesser amount of pages and I’m glad I did! I had to be really careful not to over-embellish the album because it started to get chunky. The tags add a lot of oomph to the thickness of the album so it’s best to use stickers and doodling to embellish your pages if you don’t want to have to create a belly band to keep it closed.

It’s a pretty quick mini to make. The hardest part was finding the right amount of photos and coordinating papers.  In totality, this album probably took me 2 hours to make once I gathered all my supplies. I spent most of the time resizing photos and choosing what embellishments I wanted to use as opposed to the actual assembly. In fact, I may or may not be bothering my friends for photos because I want to make them one for each of their kids at the upcoming Scrapbook Expo.
