Making an Album Day 4 an Inside Book

Well I am sure glad you stopped in again today. I sure hope me sharing these steps give you some help in making your own album, or at least some ideas to try yourself.
Today I am adding a little booklet to the right side of the album. This picture is a view of all the pieces added together.You will need five (5) pieces of paper. The measurements for each piece is below:
  • 5 x 4
  • 5 x 4 1/2
  • 5 x 4 1/4
  • 5 x 4
  • 5 x 3 3/4
score each piece on the long side at 1/2 inch. Next round the edges on only one side. (see picture)
You are going to start with the 5 x 4 piece as your base. Each piece starting with the 5 x 4 1/2 will be
laid on top- lining up the left side that hasn't been rounded . The last piece 5 x 3 3/4 will have the crease wrapped around the whole stack and attached to the back  so the seams won't show for the rest.
I added patterned paper to both the front and back of each page. I tried to leave a little sliver uncovered toward the inside so the book would close easier. Not sure it helped much.
I attached the whole book to my album.
Here is a view of the album so far, what do you think? Remember I wasn't the person that came up with this wonderful album. I purchased a kit from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon, stop over and check out all the measurements and u-stream videos. You can also go back on my blog and catch up the past three  posts I posted directions from day one.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for visiting  I hope you come back again soon. I will be posting the final album decorated really soon.
