Fancy Fold Mini Album or card

I saw this over on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and thought I would share.

To make this you need an 11X11 piece of fancy paper (used the pattern from the Dotty Pack) , a 4x12 piece of contrasting paper and two 2X2 pieces(sunflower)and the stamp of your choice(mine are from the word play stamp set.)

With the side of the paper you want on the outside facing down fold from corner to corner to make a triangle

Score with the fold line against the side of the scoreboard at 4 1/2 inches.

Turn with the fold on top. Score at 3, 5 1/4, and 10 inches flip over and score other side at 3 also.

Clip corners at top of triangle.

Fold on all score lines. At the 3 inch mark open the corner to make a pocket. I found it easier to squeeze the paper, put my finger inside and push out the sides.

Score the 4X12 piece at 4 and 8.fold in an accordion fold. Open album and adhere to inside.

Close album and adhere 2X2s to the corners. With the stamps of your choice stamp the corners and I added a stamp to the bottom of the fold out as well.

Fold sides in making sure the pockets face out and tuck the top flap into the front pocket.

Thanks for checking me out!
