Hello, G45ers!  

  Make gift-giving fun and personalized with this Simple Tri-Fold Mini Album that is a cinch to make and cute as can be.  This Mini Album is a part of our #ClubG45LeveledUp series, where we ask our Brand Ambassadors to take one of our  Club G45 tutorial ideas and take it up a notch.  This mini was inspired by our One-Page Mini Album Tutorial from Club G45 - Vol 08 - 2019 and has been created by the lovely and talented Kavitha using our Princess paper collection.  


Princess Mini Album

By Kavitha

“Hello, dear G45ers!!

I am excited to share my #Club45LeveledUp project for this month. For my assignment I decided to try the super cute “One-page mini album” from Club45 - Vol 8 .  I upscaled the size to 5 by 7 inches (the original one was 4 by 5 inches), so it's no more a one-page mini album, I have used three sheets of cardstock. I have also made a belly band for closure instead of using ribbons.



Here are the Measurements:

One 10 by 10 cardstock, score it 3 inches horizontally and at 5 and 5 ¼ vertically

One 5 ⅝ by 10 inches cardstock, score at 3 inches horizontally and at ½ and ⅞ vertically

Using the half an inch fold stick the second piece of cardstock to the first one

For the bottom flaps take three pieces of cardstock measuring  5 by 6 inches, score at ½ inch at 6 inch side and attach them to the base as shown.


Decorate them with pattern papers on all sides. Add some pockets and journal cards as you like


For the top flap, I used some journaling cards and matted them on the cardstock.


To create the belly band, take a  2 by 12 inches cardstock, wrap it around the album and hold it together in such a way that it is not too tight or too loose so that I can be easily detachable and also holds the album well. Apply glue where both overlaps and hold it for a min for it to dry.


Take a 1 ⅞ by 12-inch pattern paper and wrap it around the band. To decorate the band I have used fussy cut elements from the paper pad, flowers, and chipboard pieces. Die-cut a circle , stick it in the center and arrange all the elements.










Have a nice day.

Happy crafting!”

How beautiful. I have that collection, but haven't used it yet. I am waiting for just the right project since it is SO SPECIAL. I really like your design. I am going to look at it again and see if I should make something similar. I have a little grandgirlie now, so I will be using the papers for a project for her, as well as other things. I go to Europe each year, and LOVE castles, so I will love using the papers for many projects that will be just wonderful. Your fussy cutting of the flowers looks really nice. I forget to do that with my G45 papers. I like how precise your cutting was for the flaps and things. It makes all the difference in the world to make them look perfect. It is worth the extra time and effort. You did a really excellent job, and should be very proud of your work!!!!!
