“Hi G45ers! This is Linh (@LVHandcrafted) and I just learned about this new type of mini album – a Squash book!! This is a really cute book that resembles an explosion album. My version all folds down to a 4.5” square book. It’s great as a brag book that’s small and easy to carry around. I chose the Warm Wishes collection – perfect for showcasing your favorite holiday photos.



I used the Policy & Decorative to create some photo corner tuck spots so it’s easy to swap out photos if you like. The Tag, Pocket & Butterfly die set has a pocket and insert that fits perfectly in this album. The pockets are great for filling with ephemera, journaling cards, more photos, etc.


You can learn how to make this squash book in a minute!

Some of the triangle sections fold in such a way that you can attach larger elements (like the clock and pocket in the photo on the left). Even though it might seem hard to decorate these triangles, take advantage of these sections to attach larger items.
