Pink Paisley Secret Crush Mini Fold Album

Good Morning all you Flock Followers!!

  For this project I decided to do a Valentine's mini fold album using a recycled craft file folder and  the Pink Paisley Secret Crush collection. With this album, I used  the entire  Secret Crush line, threw in some Teresa Collins stamps from the Vintage Finds collection, as well as some Prima yummies !  Hope you enjoy this mini . Stop in  Flamingo Scraps and pick up some sweet treats to make your own mini album. ANd while you're there, check out the latest in trending scrapping goodness !   

This is my take on a project I saw online. Not sure who it was by, but I like it so I had to make it.

Start with a folder with the tab on the top. I am using a craft recycled one ,but you can find the yellow ones anywhere. The one that you use is the first one of the 3 different tabs.
You want to open it up to where the tab is on the top.
Fold the bottom up to the tab on your left side in half. And crease your line.
Now , fold the left side of your folder with the tab going over the center of the first half of folder.
Crease this down so it is flat
Use a score board and line it up against the edge. You want to score the line right next to the fold of the first part so that it will be flush to the first half. This is very important. That is why I use my score board.
This is what your folds will look like.
Back of your folder.

Now,  it's time to decorate !  I decorated, then glued the folds  with a quick dry adhesive.
This was such a fun and fast project to make. Have fun with your own folder and be sure to share your take on this with us here at Flamingo Scraps !

 Hugs, and hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day!!
