How I Assembled My Gatefold Album

I received some requests for a tutorial on how I made my gatefold albums posted to YouTube.

For the inside pages, I used a tutorial I purchased from Kathy Orta (Paper Phenomenon on YouTube) called Build-A-Page. It's available on her website at http://shop.paperphenomenon.com/Build-A-Page-Mini-Album-TUT-056.htm.   I reversed the instructions to construct the pages on the right side of the album.

For the binding, I used Laura Denison's "Stack the Deck" method. She has an excellent video which shows you how to do this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z_6pe2ZhDI.

I came up with my own measurements and technique for the covers and spines and wrote down the measurements as I was working on the album. You can download them from this link.
