You and Me Mini Album by Yvonne Blair featuring Stationary Noted

Hi everyone! Yvonne here today with Mini Album.  I did this mini for my daughter, it is featuring her and her boyfriend.  They have been together for 3 1/2 years and wanted a little photo shoot.  They asked me to take some pics of them, and of course that meant I had to do a little mini, hehehe.







 Below is a close up of the binding. Hope that might help with the instructions. 
 You and Me mini album

2-6 x 8 chipboard
Stationary Noted Papers:
1-8  x 12 Poppies side a 
Wrap around chipboard and adhere, wait to adhere the inside of the front cover until we have the spine ready  to adhere.  
1- 8 x 11 ¾ ledger side b, fold in half.
2-5 x 8 Polaroid side b, wait to adhere together.
1- 4 x 8 Damask. Score at 1” and 3”
1-8 x 11 ¾ Damask side b, fold in half. 
1-8 x 11 ¾ Flowers side a, fold in half.
1-5 ¾ Damask side b
Adhere to the inside of the back cover chipboard. 
1-6 x 8 Polaroid side b
 Wait to adhere until we have the spine ready to adhere. 

Cut a piece of black cardstock to 8x 8
Score at 2 ¾, 3, 3 ¼, 3 ½, 3 ¾, 4, 4 ¼, 4 ½, 4 ¾, 5, 5 ¼, 5 ½.
Fold on all the score lines.  You will want to create an accordion type fold throughout.  Once you have the accordion fold, you will want to adhere the accordion folds together skipping the center ¼ inch of each one. Then adhere the open parts of the folded pages to the cardstock.  The exception will be page two. For this page adhere one piece of the 5 x 8 Polaroid to the front accordion fold adhere the 1” piece of the scored damask paper to the right inside edge.  Now adhere the other 5 x 8 piece of Polaroid.  Fold the edge of Damask over the back side and adhere along the top and bottom to create a pocket.    

Adhere the accordion fold cardstock to the inside of the front cover on the right side. Then adhere the folded cover paper to the chipboard.  This will create a seamless cover to page effect. 
Adhere the back part of the accordion fold to the left side of the inside of the back cover.  Now adhere the 6 x 8 Polaroid side b to the inside of the back cover. 
Apply Decorative tape to the edges of the spine and the back right edge of the book’s back cover.  

Embellish as seen in pictures.
