Tutorial | Twist & Fold Pop Up Mini Album (Mother’s Day)

Every now and then, you make a project and it makes you smile with glee every time you go back to it. This is one of those projects – I will never get bored of opening and closing this one.


So first thing’s first, this is not one of my original projects – I was inspired by Kay F from her YouTube tutorial and she was inspired by whom I believe was the creator, Alagaina Scrap. Their links will be down at the bottom, so check them out 🙂

When I saw this, I just had to make one and share this with you all. I have recently finished a commission for Die Cut Essentials Magazine, so I used the papers that they sent me. The collection is from Kaisercraft, called Wildflower (my stockist down below). I love this collection and thought it perfect for decorating this album. I teamed it with matching cardstock, paper blooms and embellishment pack.

As always, I continue to decorate the inside of my album when I add my photos – I plan to make this a Mother’s Day mini and fill it with black & white photos.
