Linen Closet mini album tutorial.

Here is a written tutorial on how I made this mini album I showed in my Tresors De Luxe more projects video

Covers re 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 and I use medium Graphix brand weight chipboard that I get from or

There are 6 pages in this album.

The base pages:  7 x 9 and 7 x 10

Score the 7 x 10 sheet on the 10" side at 1/2 and 9 1/2  The score marks are indicated by the solid red lines.  

Fold on your score marks and attach the 7 x 9 sheet on top to create the base page. You will make 6 of these.

 The next step is to make the flap that I attached to the right side of the front of the base page. You will need a 7 1/2 x 9 sheet of card stock. Score on the 7 1/2 side at 1/2 and 6 1/2.

You will fold on both score lines and miter the corners on the 1/2 side. This is where you will attach this flap to the base page. The Right side of the flap is where I used a border punch and punched out a design.

  I then folded that to the back of the base page and applied score tape next to the fold to create a tension style pocket. 

Next you will create the criss cross pocket style page. Which looks difficult but really isn't.  First you will score the 8 x 10 sheet at 1/2 on all sides as see below.  Again indicated by the solid red lines. You will then cut out the squares that are formed i all 4 corners mitering each as you cut out.  

Next you will need to cut the sheet in half diagonal. You can do this with ruler or your paper cutter. 

You will need to cut out the square on all 4 corners. Mitering each one as seen below. 

You will need to cut off 1 inch of the 1/2 flap on the left bottom side. 

Then fold the flaps on the sheet you cut to the front and the other sheet to the back.  

Attach the sheet that is on the top right in the above picture to the left side of the base page as seen in the below picture. 

Attach the other sheet (the one you cut 1" off on the right side of the page as seen below. 

Next take the 10 x  4 sheet and score on the 10" side at 1/2 and 9 1/2 and on the 4" side at 1/2. You can use  border punch on side that is not scored if you wish.  Cut out the squares that are formed after scoring the pages and fold back. Attach the pocket you just made to the back of the base page. 

Now do this to the next 5  pages. I have a tutorial on my YouTube channel on how to make the hidden hinge binding, covers and attach the pages to the album.
