May Arts Ribbon/Scor-Pal Blog Hop


Welcome to the May Arts Ribbon/Scor-Pal Blog Hop! If you came here from Toni Storie's Blog, you're on the right track! If not, make sure you start at the beginning today on Charlene Driggs blog so you don't miss a single project! 

For my project today, I created a mini album using ONE single sheet of double sided 12x12 paper. I wish that I could take credit for this idea because it is soooo creative and simple to make, but I scrap-lifted from my dear friend Shellye McDaniel (with her permission to re-post this fabulous tutorial). I thought a little patriotic mini would be perfect to kick off this holiday weekend!

To create this mini album you will need one 12x12 sheet of double sided pattern paper, a scor-board, scor-tape, and some ribbon. 

I chose Authentique Paper for this project because of the texture and nice thick quality. You will need to scor your paper at 3", 6", 9"

Then turn your paper sideways and scor at the 6" mark.

With a paper trimmer or scissors, cut your paper down the middle all the way up to the 3" mark. Be sure to leave this last little bit attached. 

Your paper should look like this. 

Add scor-tape so your paper looks exactly like this. Remember, the patterned side that you want on the front and back cover should be facing you, the back side will be the pattern on your inside pages.

Peel off the tape backing and fold/adhere EXACTLY as follows... be careful, this part is a little tricky: 
Adhere #2 to #3. 
Fold down and adhere #1 to #5. 
Adhere #6 to #7. 

Now you will have this. 

Add another piece of Scor-tape to the front and back cover.

Add ribbon. 

Tie & embellish. Fill with photos and you are finished! 

Here's the cover of my mini album with some embellishments.

Thanks for the directions for the mini-album. I've made one that was smaller. I thought it would be possible to enlarge it but never tried to do that. Now I can make a larger album without having to tax my math skills (what skills??). Your album is very cute.

So glad there are directions. Thanks!

fun project and great tutorial details. Wonderful choice of papers. I can see where the quality of the tape would be most needed to hold things together and to add the beautiful ribbon. Wonderful project.

Hands down your Mini Album is fabulous. Hard to believe you made it from on 12x12 sheet of paper. I so had to pin your album so I can try my hand at making one myself. Sending a big Thank You to your friend Shellye McDaniel for her graciousness.

Cute mini idea!

Caryn S said...

THAT is COOL! I am totally pinning this! Like probably most paper crafters I HATE the idea of wasting a scrap of paper and this is the ultimate in paper thrift.
