I am Ava Gavloski and I want to share with you a cute zig zag album I have made to keep photos from our visit to South Korea.
Having a small album that can slip into a purse is super cute. Keeping the album slick and minimally embellished gives the presentation of a modern look. A clean front and back cover of the album will ensure that the covers will look fresh even after many times of being pulled out and back into a purse.
Kay F. has the perfect tutorial video on YouTube (Accordion Zig Zag Mini Album Tutorial) which inspired me to create this mini album.
Ava used the following to make her album:
7gypsies Epicurean 6×6 or any other paper pad
Architextures Trinkets – In the shade
Architestures Treasures – Stacked Wicker Trunks
Canvas Corp – Black and White Diamonds
Canvas Corp – Red and White Ribbon Stripe
Canvas Corp – Turquoise and White Damask Reverse
Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L
May Arts Ribbon
Personal paper trimmer
Westcott Brand Scissors
Gather all papers from 7gypsies, Architextures and Canvas Corp.
Cut cardstock covers and inserts .
Adhere inside zig zag pages with adhesive.
Adhere cover’s together and adhere ribbons into the inside of the covers.
Once ribbons are in place, adhere pattern paper to cover and spine.
Once cover’s have been adhered, open album and ahere the zig zag bound pages to back inside cover.
Decide where to place and then adhere the white pockets onto the zig zag pages.
Start embellishing your album with Architextures and pattern papers.
Look how great this Stacked Wicker Trunk looks on the inside cover with the themed pattern paper from 7gypsies Epicurean 6×6 variety pack.
I added the “In the Shade” Architextures book embellishments to the pockets.
Great embellishment since the ribboned tags are held in the pockets.
How do you like the album? I think it’s a cool way of storing our memories from the distant travels.
