Tutorial | Small Twist & Pop Album With Micro Twist Inserts

Today’s project was a highly requested one from my Christmas in July bonus tutorial – The giant twist & pop album. Inside I made a mini twist & pop album that sat inside a pocket. You all asked for a tutorial for that…so here it is – with a few surprises inside!

So, lets get to the gorgeous Christmas papers that I used. They are from a new collection called Wonderland by Helz Cuppleditch (Trimcraft). I have used the paper pack, the decoupage pack and the accessories from the collection. Details and dimensions are down below 🙂 But first some close-ups!

Aren’t those micro twist & pops adorable??!!! Here are the dimensions and if you make this project, I would love to see your creation! I love sharing your makes on my Facebook Page 🙂

    • Hi Pamela,
      There is only this video as I just demonstrate how to make the basic album. I have left all the measurements you’ll need to mat your papers and make the micro version.
