Christmas Mini Album

Hello everyone, last week I shared how to make this beautiful Christmas Mini Album for 6″ x 4″ photos.

I do love making Mini Albums, there is something about holding a finished album in you’re hands, which beats any shop bought one!

Christmas Mini Album

I wanted an album to hold 6″ x 4″ photos and can’t wait to fill this one, this year.

I stuck with 3 different page layouts and then duplicated them throughout the album.

I did a pocket page with a photo mat.

Then a flip page to hold two 6″ x 4″ photos and a 4″ x 4″ photo, along with some journaling.

Christmas Mini Album

To make this album you will need…

2 pieces of 5.1./2 x 9″ 2mm chipboard for cereal box card doubled up. These will form the front and back pages of your mini album.

10 pieces of 5″ x 8.1/4″ Kraft card for your pages.

2 pieces of 10.1/2 x 7.1/2 pattern paper to cover your chipboard pieces.

2 pieces of 5.1/4 x 8.5/8 red card to stick on the inside of your front and back pages.

2o pieces of 4.3./4 x 7.1/4 pattern paper to mat all of your pages.

Flip pages

4 pieces of 11.3/4 x 4.1/2 for your flip pages. Score along the longest side at 4.1/2.

8 pieces of 6.5/8 x 4.1/4 pattern paper to mat your flip pages.

4 pieces of 4.1/4 x 4.1/4 pattern paper to mat the square area of your flip page.

Pocket pages

5 pieces of 8″ x 3.1/2 Kraft card for your pockets. Score along 3 of the sides at 1/2.

5 pieces of 2.5/8 x 6.5/8 to mat your pockets.

5 pieces of 2.3/8 x 6.3/8 to layer on top of your mats.

Tuck spot pages

These can be made however you like, I used the cut outs from the paper pack.

Photo mats

I used 8 photo mats measuring 4.1/2 x 6.1/2 but you can have double the amount if you wish.

16 pieces of 6.1/4 x 4.1/4 plain paper to mat on both sides of each photo page.

I used 2″ binder rings available from Amazon or eBay.

All decoration is entirely down to you. If you would like to get your hands on the Echo Park papers I used I’ve found them here or visit Thompson’s Craft Supplies for the newer Echo Park collection below.

Echo Park Merry & Bright

You can find very similar gold metal corner protectors here.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.

I also added these extra pages, shown below, for me to add more journaling. These were made using the cutouts in the paper pack.

I added little bells and my real life looking leaves from some Ikea flowers I purchased.
