DIY Holiday Gatefold Folio Album

Hello, G45ers!

Seasons greetings! Today on the blog we are creating a DIY Gatefold Folio Album using our Warm Wishes paper collection. This gorgeous mini album and video tutorial have been created for us by the fabulous, Sascha K.  This project is a part of our #G45LeveledUp series. This is where we ask our Brand Ambassadors to take one of our Printable Project Sheets, try out the tutorial, and then add to it!

DIY Gatefold Folio Album

By Sascha K


“Hello crafters!

I am SO ready for Christmas!

For this month, I wanted to create a Christmas version of the Album Kit vol. 8

If you haven’t seen the tutorial for the gorgeous Charmed Gatefold folie Album designed by Maria Cole, you can check it out here:

DIY Gatefold Folio Charmed

It’s full of great ideas, techniques, and so many cool details.


This was super easy, and really fast to make!

A great idea for a homemade Christmas gift.




I added magnets in the front piece, so it would be easier to close.




There are so many hidden places to journal and add photos.

It also has some great pockets, maybe for gift tags or recipes.
