Create | Accordion Mini Album...

My beautiful niece has just started her first year at Boarding School and I wanted to send her some love via the mail. What better way to make someone smile.

She's been having a difficult time adjusting to her new schedule, but hopefully these love notes will help remind her that she is truly special.


To recreate this look, all you need is one sheet of Bite Size Bits (3x4 cut aparts) from Jillibean Soup; and coordinating embellishments. I have used Bowl of Dreams.

step 1. Trim the cut apart patterned paper into two rows.

step 2. Select one row and trim the left side to form a tab. See photo above. This will mean losing part of the 3x4 images on the patterned paper.

step 3. Score fold line (valleys and mountains) along the 3x4 image borders, including the tab. 

step 4. Adhere the two rows together.


step 5. Embellish each section, creating hidden pockets and tags.


step 6. Fold the mini album along the score lines to reduce the size and secure with a piece of bakers twine.


And now it's as simple as popping your gift in the mail!


Thanks for visiting..x
