Today I wanted to show you how I constructed this mini album . When I came up with the idea for the album I knew I wanted it to be a square chipboard mini. Looking through my basket of blank minibooks, I didn’t have one that fit my idea, but I did come across a package of 5″x5″ Bazzill Really Big Chips. I’d also been hoarding some kraft book binding tape for a couple years now, and thought this would be the perfect time to try it out!

Above are the supplies I used, plus scissors and a craft knife. The tape is gummed and when wet becomes sticky.

I cut three pieces of the tape just longer than 5″

Then lay two of the pieces of chipboard next to each other, like so

Then with a sticky piece of tape attached them together

The tape forms the hinge between the pages. To finish up the book I folded the pages up

cut off the excess, then added the next page

and so on until the book was complete.

I used a fourth piece of tape as a binding on the outside of the book.

Finally, I covered all the pages with kraft cardstock.

And voila! A blank mini- album ready to fill with memories!
