One Sheet Mini Album 12 x 12’s #8

One Page Mini Album

Once you learn this simple binding method you’ll be making a bunch of these mini albums with any paper. Only one sheet, great for journals, photo keepsakes and collage. Add some simple corner tucks or pockets and will hold ephemera. Nice flat mail project too!


What you’ll need:

1 12×12″ scrapbook paper of your choice, non directional if beginner

Single hole paper punch

String or twine

Scoreboard of scoring tool

Begin by cutting your 12×12″ paper into three equal strips that measure 4″x12″. 

Score each piece at 5 1/2″, 6″ and 6″ 1/2″. Fold and burnish each score line as shown in the video tutorial, choose your cover piece and then either keeping all papers the same direction or choosing to reverse one to the opposite pattern for variety.

How you decorate or embellish your mini album is up to you. Pockets and corner tucks can easily be added. 4×6″ photos will have to be trimmed. 

This binding technique is so simple you can use it to make notebooks for your journals too using digitals. The backs make for lots of writing space. 

Happy paper crafting!
