Sandra has created this great project - she has decorated with Christmas papers but it would be so easy to use for other occasions.
Memory File Folder Album (my own version with measurements in inches)
You’ll need four (4) A4 Manilla Folders
Co-ordinating cardstock OR extra manilla folder
Cut each to folder to 8 ½ ” on open side and 6 ¼ ” on the fold side then score at 1” from fold side so it opens more easily and fits into the hinge.
For the hinge cut a piece of cardstock or manilla folder to 8” X 6 ¼ ”
Score at 1” all the way along the 8” length.
Fold in a concertina fashion. Fit the first file folder into the first valley of the concertina fold. Repeat with the other three folders. See tape position in the photo.
Tape the bottom and sides of the folder that will glue to the second folder and the open top will form a pocket for tag or smaller page.
Cover each side with your choice of patterned paper before creating and affixing the spine. To make the spine cut a piece of co-ordinating cardstock to 6 ¼ ” X 3”. Score on long side at 1” then flip and score opposite side at 1”, this will give you a ¼ ”spine.
Decorate the memory file as desired.
For the tags or smaller pages that fit into the pockets cut cardstock to 6” X 4 ½” then cover both sides with patterned paper and decorate as desired. I used a spellbinders die cut in half for the tabs and adhered them to the top of the smaller page but in hind sight I would have adhered before adding the patterned paper ie. Adhere over the top of the tab.
