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.

Mini Album Base Measurements and Tutorial

  • Two pieces of chipboard that measure 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches

  • One piece of chipboard that measures 2 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches

  • Join two pieces of black card stock that measure 8 1/2 x 11 inches to construct the mini album.

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!
