Halloween Week - Kathy Byrne


Oh my goodness
what a treat we have for you today!
Kathy Byrne is here with us to 
show you one of her fabulous mini albums!
I have been doing her album 
classes this year and I am
absolutely loving them.
You really will love this......

This is how to make it -

Take a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock
and score at 6".  Rotate and score
at 3 3/4", 4", 7 3/4" and 8".

Cut 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" (depending on how 
deep you want your pocket) off top left side
 section. (Save this piece to create flap on 
lower right hand section)
Cut away sections shown in picture.

Score a 1/4" gusset on the bottom flap to 
create space for photo and journalling 
tags in the pocket.
Fold and sharply crease all score lines.

Fold album together before you start to 
decorate. You might have to cut a little 
off the top to make the cover flush with 
the body of the album.

From A4 cardstock cut two hinges 5 3/4"
x 1" and in the landscape position, 
score at 1/2".
Using wet glue, adhere the hinges to 
the edge of both sides of the left 
centre flap.  Fold over and adhere to the
opposite side creating a pocket with 

Decorate the back of the pocket page 
at the base of the album before 
attaching the pocket.

Carefully apply a thin line of wet glue 
to three sided of the pocket and attach to
the page with the opening facing
in to the fold.

Decorate and embellish!!

Now you know why I have been joining in 
with these classes......the albums 
just get more and more amazing!!

Materials if you want to have a go -

12" x 12" Cardstock
