Prima Cartographer - Mini Album

Hello everyone!

I want to share with you today a new mini album I've created, using the paper collection "Cartographer" from Prima. I almost finished the 6X6 pad, only 2 sheets were left.

I wanted to make an album with an irregular shape, something that will look like a ticket, but to still be able to use a hidden hinge binding system. Here is the outcome:


The album's measurements are as follows:
Covers: 6 1/4" X 4 3/4"
Spine: 3 1/4" X 2 1/4"



It has 5 pocket pages, each holds a tag and has 2 flaps on the base of the page:







 Here are some close-ups:



And here's a quick video of this project:




I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.


Hugs,
Alexandra

  3. Love your album! Where do you get the little things that hold the flaps closed? It looks like they are attached with a brad.

    1. Thank you Marilyn. The "little things that hold the flaps closed" are called "turn buttons". You can get them from E-Bay. Just type "turn buttons" in the search section and look through the results.
      And indeed they are attached with the brad to the paper page, although sometimes they are used on wooden or metal frames to hold a photo from behind and then they are attached with the screws.
      I hope this helps.
