Tutorial - Beaded Scrapbook Mini Album

In my tutorial, I show you how to create a scrapbook album like the one pictured on the left. It's made with the Primrose cardstock stack by DCWV and other papers I had in my stash. You could use any paper you want to customize your album.  The album covers measure 8 x 6-1/2 inches and the inside pages measure 7-1/2" x 5-1/2" inches. There are 16 pages, 8 fold-out flaps and 8 large tags. The pages are stitched together and beads are added to the exposed spine.

The tutorial is in PDF format and contains 35 pages of EXTREMELY DETAILED step-by-step instructions from start to finish with lots of photos I took as I was creating the album: making the pages, flaps and tags, making the covers, stitching the pages together and adding beads to the exposed spine, making the closure and ideas for embellishing with your own supplies. Measurements are included for every page, flap, pocket and tag you will need to construct this exact album.

In addition to the written tutorial, I'm including free links to my series of unlisted ONLINE VIDEOS that show how to make the album as I create a brand new one from start to finish. You can refer to the videos anytime as I plan to leave them online for as long as the service provider can host them.
