Graphic 45 Mini Album Tutorial | One Sheet Wonder

By Sandi Nagel


“This is an easy Mini Album Tutorial.  Beginners and experts are welcome. You can make these cute mini albums for gift giving, wedding favors and quinceaneras.  The possibilities are endless!



You’ll find that the Graphic 45 Tags are made out of good quality card stock.  This makes projects such as these possible.


For this one sheet mini album project I’m using one 12×12 sheet from the Imagine collection.


With just one piece of 12×12 paper you’ll be making the front and back covers as well as the photo mats and tuck sleeves for the pages within.



Although this mini album doesn’t leave much room for embellishing, you can always use the stickers from the Imagine collection sticker sheet.



Tip: As you see here, the pages of this mini album are put together in a Z-Fold (or zig zag) fashion. In order to get your pages just right, use your scoring board. By squaring your pages on the scoring board, you’ll get a perfect alignment each and every time.


The Tutorial:

I put together this easy to follow tutorial, where I show you step-by-step how to make this cute mini album, using just one sheet of Graphic 45 paper.
