Folded travel mini album

Having a diverse design team with crew members situated all over the world means we get to travel to various locations from the comfort of our homes and studios. Today we would like to share with you an eclectic travel mini album from CCB Crew Member, Irit Shalom from Israel. This global inspired piece was created using the newest papers from our 7 Gypsies Paper Line, Wanderlust. These papers really make this project come alive. Lets scroll down and see how Irit made this…


I used pre-made folded mini album from the craft shop; but I am sure there are instructions how to fold it on web. The whole piece was made as a small album for travel photos, but all photos are inside the flip and should be very small to fit the flips inside.

 Materials Used:

Tools Used: Die Cut Machine, Heat Gun
Step 1
Find or make the folded mini album of 5*7” size.
Step 2
Cover one side of the album with different papers from Wanderlust collection. Distress the edges with sand paper/file.
Step 3
Cover the front and other sides in the similar way. The front piece is the only one that is not cut into halves.
Step 4
Fold a few Kraft cardstock piece into small cards and glue them randomly over the both album sides. Add some post cards cut outs over each flip and ink the edges with Dragonfly mist as shown. Those are the places to add photos later.
Step 5
Glue the flips over the album as shown; the photos shows just one side, but there are same photo flips on the other side too.  You can also add little envelopes like the mini envelopes from Canvas Corp that measure 3″x3″ or 2″x4″. 
Step 6
Stamp the sayings using Canvas Corps stamp sets with black ink and heat emboss them with clear embossing powder. Die cut the labels as shown.
Step 7
Die cut vintage shapes with Die Versions dies using Kraft cardstock, Then heat emboss all with copper embossing powders and add some Chalk mist over the cool pieces to get a vintage look. Arrange most of those ” copper” pieces over the front cover and add some inside.
Step 8
And more dies inside the album
Step 9
Add metal piece as shown. Mist the cover and the pages with Dragonfly and Chalk mists. This is how this album looks when opened
Step 10
And this is the closed view from the back side
