I came home from convention and made these for my granddaughters and made a box like Shiloh made to keep them together. This shows the end with the hodgepodge label holder. **Edited to add that I entered this into the Iowa State Fair in rubber stamping on paper and won 2nd place!!!

I have received several requests for directions for the mini albums in my gallery and the box that I made for them, so I'm posting here as well as answering directly.
MIni Accordian Album
I used 1 12x12" sheet of cs and cut 3 strips 3 3/4". Score at 3 3/4", 7 1/2", and 11 1/4". Cut off the 3/4" on one strip. Glue/tape all together to make an accordian strip with 9 pages. You could also use the accordian book kit. For the cover, I used 2-4x4" squares of lightweight cardboard and covered with 2-5x5" squares of designer paper. I used sticky strip to adhere pages of album to inside of covers. I then used 20" ribbon to tie together. Use 1" sticky strip on the middle of the ribbon to fasten on the back cover. See mini albums instructions on SU website by Paula Hogan for directions on inside of album. Box was adapted from Shiloh's demos. I made 3 albums and made my box to fit that. You need 2 pieces of CS 6"x7 1/2". Score at 1 1/2" on 3 sides (2-6" sides and 1-7 1/2" side). Cut out squares in corners and use sticky strip to fasten flaps together to make a box. Finished box size is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".
Have fun making these. I used this as my project with my stamp club last month and 7 gals came and made them. They loved them. Kathy
