For a long time I've been intrigued by the concept of 'One Sheet Wonder (OSW)' to make a mini album or an insert that holds a few photos, and I searched Pinterest for ideas. There are many tutorials, with many variations of OSW, and I decided to use this tutorial by Claudia. The measurements are in cm, so if you need the instructions to be in inches, you can use this tutorial, which has a table of measurements in inches.
I used papers from a very beautiful Graphic 45 collection - 'Portrait of a Lady'. For the base I used 12x12 DP (these papers are so thick, and it's perfect for mini albums!) and for the decoration I've used some 8x8 papers, fabric flowers, lace flowers, eyelets and baker's twine.
You can close the mini album either with a ribbon (make sure to adhere it to the base before you decorate the front and back cover. Another option is to use magnets to close the album (again, make sure to put the magnets before decoration the base.
You can see more closeups of my mini album on my blog HERE. There are many other mini albums on my blog, so feel free to scroll through the 'mini albums' tab. Thank you so much for inviting me to be your GD this month,
