Instructions: This a very easy and fun way to make a super interactive mini album that fits in the Classic Wedding train caboose that was highlighted a few weeks ago on this blog. The inspiration for this project came from My Sister Scrapper. Instead of making a mini album that is rectangle as described in the video I altered the mini album to a 3 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches mini album that is put together the same way.

For the pages: You will need to cut six pieces of white cardstock 7 inches by 7 inches square. Score both ways at 3 ½ inches. Cut one of the four score lines to the middle intersection mark on each of the six pages. Cut six pieces of white cardstock 3 inches by 4 ½ inches Score on the 4 ½ inches side at ½ inch from each end and with the 3 inches side across the top score at 1 ½ inches. Cut a small notch at the ½ inch and 1 ½ inch intersection for ease in folding the pockets on each of the six set of pages. Fold on the score lines of the 7 inches by 7 inches white cardstock pieces with the open side on the page on the top and bottom with the folded page with the opening side on right side and bottom forming the pocket. Attached glue to the ½ inch borders of the 3 inches by 4 ½ inches pieces and glue in place to form the pockets. Refer to pictures for details. Attach the pockets with glue. Cut six pieces of white cardstock 3 inches by 3 inches and 12 pieces of white cardstock 2 inches by 3 inches. Cut 30 pieces of Classic Wedding decorative paper 3 inches by 3 inches and 12 pieces of Classic Wedding decorative paper 1 ¼ inches by 4 ¼ inches for the pockets. Attach decorative papers to white cardstock with glue.

For the hidden hinge: Cut a piece of white cardstock 3 inches by 12 inches and score every half inch across the 12 inch side. Glue six sets of hinges starting from the middle and working your way outward with one open hinge that lays flat between each raised page hinge. You will have 1 inch and 1 ½ inches of scored lines left over at each end.

For the cover: Cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 3 ¾ inches by 10 inches. On the 10 inches side of the paper score 3 ¾ inches from each end. I used a ½ inch gusset in between the pages and the hidden hinge system described in the video. Glue the hidden hinge piece in to the binding of the mini album and the extra to the inside front and back cover. Cover the cover with four pieces of 3 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches Classic Wedding Paper and 1 piece 2 ½ inches by 3 ¾ inches paper for the outside of the cover.
