Mini Album / Journal - Using One 12x12 Paper +

I super love how this mini album / journal came out. It is so fun to put together, and you only need one sheet of 12x12 paper to do it. If you wanted to add the centre pockets to it (optional) you will need an extra scrap piece of paper. I show you in the video how to make one, make sure to check my instagram for updates on others that I am finishing up. 

Here are the measurements I used for this project:

12x12 paper - if you have single sided paper / non directional that works best
Score at 5 1/2", 6" and 6 1/2"
Turn once and score at 4" and 8"

For the pocket page:
12 x 5 1/2" paper
Score on the long side at 5 1/5" x 6" and 6 1/2' 
Turn once to the short side, score at 1 1/2"

Have fun crafting my friends. Remember to tag me if you make one, I love to see what you create!
