Photo Booth Album

I made several of these photo booth albums for Christmas presents and they were a huge hit. I decided to make a couple for gifts for Valentine's Day.  You can view the tutorial  here.

This is what you are going to need:

1. 5 or 6 sheets of patterned paper, either single or double sided is fine. These need to be cut to 5" x 8 1/2". They will be scored at 2 1/2".

2. 1 piece of heavier weight card stock for the front and back cover, these will need to be cut at 2 5/8" x 8 3/4". You will also need a contrasting piece for the spine, this will need to be cut at 
1 3/4" x 8 3/4".  The spine will be scored at 3/4" and 1".

3. Glue, red tacky tape, or a ATG gun

4. Bone folder 

5. Decorative edge punch or decorative scissors.

6. Embellishments for the cover.

Here is a close-up of the front cover embellishment  and the spine.


When I give these as gifts I also include a small tin full of photo corners, brads, stickers, die cuts, bling, ribbon, or anything that can be used to decorate the album.

If you try making one, I would love to see it. :)
