The construction to the mini album base is quite simple, and I’ve done a separate video tutorial that you can apply to any mini album size that you want to construct.

The metal details are amazing. This is one of my all time favorite paper collections. I love it so much, I am hesitant to use it--I never have. I need to dig into it!
