Today, we will be making an 8×8 album with flaps and pockets. I will also be showing you how to add magnets to your mini albums, so flaps stay in place and make the album fun to use!
I’m using the beautiful digital collection from Nitwit Collections – it’s called Vintage Garden and there are various parts to the kit that can be bought separately or receive 20% off with the whole bundle. The colours and the florals are absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to get photos put into mine!
The cutting guide, tutorial and links to supplies are down below. I’d love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment and subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already!
Thank you for dropping by today. If you have enjoyed today’s project, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any future projects. You can also find me on Facebook and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have – I try to reply to as many comments as I can after a video is posted.
