In this tutorial, I show you how to create my Birdhouse & Scrapbook Mini Album Set.
The birdhouse is made of chipboard and comes in two pieces – the bottom section that holds the album, and the top section which forms the roof (lid). It measures 8-1/2”w x 10-1/2” h with a
thickness of 5-1/2” at the top of the roof.
The scrapbook album measures 7”w x 5-1/2”h and is 3-1/2” thick. The left side of the album has two cover flaps that fold over a stack of photo mat pages. The right side of the album has pages made with paper bags.
I show you how to make your own “paper bags” from cardstock or scrapbook paper in case you don’t have the same size bags. I used mostly paper I had left over in my stash to make these sets. I did use a few sheets of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology bird-themed papers for the set on the left. For the cat album set that I refer to as a demo in this tutorial, I used a few sheets of cat-themed paper by “Forever in Time”.
The tutorial is in PDF format and contains 50 pages of extremely detailed step-by-step instructions with about 225 photos that show how I created this project from start to finish. Measurements are included for each piece you will need to construct the set.
In addition to the written tutorial, I'm including free links to my series of unlisted ONLINE VIDEOS that show how to make the journal album as I create a brand new one from start to finish. I plan on making these videos available to everyone who purchases my tutorial for as long as the service provider can continue hosting them for free.
Below are videos of the two sets I made based on this tutorial. (If you have difficulties viewing the videos, you can click the links below each one to view them on my YouTube channel.)
