How to make an album
Cut two 135x170mm pieces and one 150x170mm piece of aqua card. Score and fold both smaller pieces 15mm from one long edge. Score and fold the bigger piece 15mm from both long edges. The 15mm folds will form the spines of the album. Add tape to the folds on the 150x170mm panel and attach to the spines the other pieces at each side to create the album cover.
Score two pieces of 145x95mm white card 15mm from one long edge and both short edges. Trim diagonally where the fold lines cross, then fold scored sections under. Glue patterned paper onto the front of each pocket. Punch a semi-circle from the centre of the top edge. Attach one pocket to the top centre panel of the album, glue the ABC Collectable to the front and place the 'Birth Record' inside.
Attach a piece of patterned paper to the top of the inside left flap. Die-cut 'Every baby is a blessing' from 12x12 Cherub paper with a scalloped square die, and attach to the panel with double-sided tape. Stick gems to the flowers. Add rabbit and bird Collectables. Attach a 115x165mm piece of patterned paper under the flap, and glue 'It’s a boy' Collectable to the top left and the 'Notes' banner to the bottom right.
Cut two 110x160mm pieces of patterned paper, with a baby and a plane. Layer onto two 115x166mm pieces of white card. Attach a 240mm length of gingham ribbon centrally to the right edge of the front cover and attach the baby paper. Fold the album so that the 150x170mm panel becomes the back. Attach ribbon centrally to the left edge of the back panel and attach the plane paper over top.
Score 115x298mm of white card into four equal sections along the length. Mountain and valley fold, and round the corners. Attach five 110x70mm pieces of patterned paper with rounded corners to each section and the front. Add two 240mm lengths of ribbon to the back, and attach to the bottom centre of the album. Add 1-4 months Collectables to each section and 'Baby' to front. Tie closed.
Attach a 110x165mm piece of patterned paper to the back right panel. Die-cut 'Be little and dream big' from the 12x12 Cherub paper with a scalloped square die, and attach to the centre with double-sided tape. Glue the 'Tiny and Sweet' to the top right and the rattle Collectible to the bottom left. Add tiny gems above the 'i' on the 'Be little and dream big'. Fold album closed and tie together to finish.
Die-cut a 'New baby' sentiment from white card and attach centrally to the front of the album. Attach the 'Sweet boy' Collectable to the centre right using sticky fixers, and add gems to the baby boots. Glue two aeroplanes from the Collectables to the back and add a 'Dream Big' Collectable centrally to the top of the panel using sticky fixers. Turn your album over and open to the inside.
Score and fold two 180x115mm pieces of aqua card 15mm from the short edge. Attach by the tabs inside left and right of the album. Cover with patterned paper and add pocket from step four to the panel on the right. Place the postcards and 'remember' note inside. Add baby and bird Collectables. Attach a 115x165mm piece of patterned paper under the panel, covering the tab at the top. Add pram.
