Mini Two-Ring Album

Club Scrap's "Blog Hop Time" at the end of the month is bittersweet because it is my final item on my task list for every collection. Today it's time to feature June's Pattern Play kit and then I have to jump right directly to the next collection . . . Vintage Botany!

(If you'd like to view the entire blog hop line-up, click HERE. And if you're playing along, you've hopped over from Roni's blog.)

I unearthed a box of album component kits in the warehouse and decided to make a mini book with these cheerful Pattern Play papers.

With the snap ring closure, thick book board, and fastening hardware included in the project kit, this little album came together in a jiffy! Well, more like an hour or two.

Trim your favorite Pattern Play papers to wrap the cover boards and spine at the following measurements:

  • 6x7.5" Outside Spine Cover
  • (2) 5x7.5" Outside Covers
  • 5.25x6" Inside Spine Cover

To aid in the assembly process, simply follow along with Karen's video from the original "Twinchie Album" workshop! Substitute with Pattern Play papers, and you're all set to make a gorgeous book. Be sure to have your basic bookbinding supplies on hand including our awesome Bookbinding Glue, a bone folder, Grid Ruler, scissors, pencil, and Crop-A-Dile.



In lieu of the page protectors, trim the desired number inner pages to 5x5". Measure and mark a spot to punch holes for the binding 3/8" from the edge. Punch between the 7/8 and 1" mark for the top ring, and between 4 and 4-1/8" for the bottom ring. Test the page to ensure it fits into the rings properly.

Use the first punched page as a template to punch the remaining pages for the book. Alternate the page colors to add variety.
