Hello FJ Friends!
Kerstin here and I am super excited to show you my Folded Heart Mini Album today with the magical Margot! These patterns, motifs and colors have me again under their spell. I wanted a simple and quick mini album in which I can put many of the great papers, embellishments and photos. I came up with this idea - my daughter is thrilled with it. But enough of romanticizing - I'm going to show you the mini and how I made it.
By the way - at the end of this post I've put together a little video so you can see the main steps too! But let's get started now!
I took a 12 x 12 Essentials White Cardstock and folded at 2 1/4 inches, 4 1/2 inches, 6 3/8 inches and 9 inches and cut 11 1/4 inches off the cardstock. I did this up and across so that there were small squares.
Then I used my scissors to cut out different squares. In the first row I cut out the squares 1, 3 and 5. In the fourth row, I cut out squares 1 and 5. And in the sixth row, I cut out squares 1, 2, 4 and 5. By cutting the squares, a heart is created.
In these little squares I glued a variety of papers from the Margot 6 x 6 Cut Apart Sheets, Margot Die Cut Shapes, Bella Epoxy Stickers and Bits and Pieces from other great collection.
In the photos you can see the most diverse examples!
In this photo you can see how the mini is folded to get a square. You see, if you hold the mini in your hand, not at all what hides the wonderful behind the cover!
Finally, I have designed a front and back. For this I used the amazing Margot Floral paper, a few of the cute Tiny Tulle Pom Poms, sequins, a Bella Vellum heart and an Emily Word Sticker - the cover is done! To close the cover, I used Essentials Cotton Ribbon taped between the cover and the folded heart with double-sided tape.
A simple and quick mini album that you can put lots of memories in!
You can see the process in the video below …
I love this mini and it will certainly not be the last of this kind!
I hope you like this idea as much as I do!
Be creative! See you soon!
