White Flowers on Green Mini Album

Hello Bloggers
Finally finished this album which ended up being very 'wide' & as you go through the pics you will know why.
I used vanilla cardstock inside the book & green cardstock for cover.. 

There are 7 pages in total that are 11 3/8" with the 3/8" score & fold in the centre at 5 1/2" in from each edge. Each page has an outside front 5 1/2", an inside left 5 1/2", an inside right at 5 1/2" & an outside back 5 1/2".

There are 2 pages tied with ribbon that have an additional inner set 
- pages 3 & 5.

In addition, there were 2 pages  towards the centre that  were tied together with ribbon as seen above

Cherish side is attached to back of front cover. The rose is fussy cut & a foam mount added inside to keep the rose open for the tickets.  The back of page 1 is left as is

Inside page 1. Ephemera added on both sides with lace belly band

Back of page 1 & front of page 2 used ephemera, lace, heart doily & vintage trinket with pearl

Inside of page 2 - corners torn to open for ephemera, tickets & flowers

Back of page 2 - ephemera & doily tucked behind ephemera on green.
Front of page 3 on the right is the 1st of the double pages. The ribbon was attached to the back of page 3 with ephemera tucked into the ribbon.  This page is  16 3/8" - 3/8" at centre with 3 1/4" folded in on each side.  The inner piece  is 8 6/8" with 2/8" at centre. 

View of page 3 with ribbon untied.  The edges of the flaps & the inside smaller page were deckle edged & the same matching paper used on the outside & inside of the flaps

This one shows the left flap open, the inside of page 3 & the outside of the smaller insert - the lace allows ephemera to be inserted

Back of the insert page & right flap

The back of the insert page is  on the left, the right flap is open & the inside of page 3 

The  inserted page is now open & shows the embellishments

The back of page 3 & front of page 4 sere just decorated

Inside of page 4

Back  of page 4 has a fussy cut wreath which is decorated with green tassels & ribbon.
The left page is the front of the second page that has a mini insert tied with ribbon - page 5

Close up 

Inside of page 5 & front of the insert page. There were no flaps on page 5. The insert page had green cardstock to allow ephemera/photos/journaling to be tucked in.  The insert page has vintage trinkets folded over the edge for turning
Inside the insert page - same size as inner of page 3

Back of insert page & inside of page 5.  All the pages had the same papers used on them

Back of page 5. The front & back of page 5 has a small vintage trinket & pearl in front of the ribbon.  On the right is outside front of page 6 with a lace belly band

The insides of page 6 were simply embellished

Outside of page 6 with 'non white' flowers.  Ont the right is the outside of page 7. The fan ephemera was fussy cut & folded to appear as a fan

Insides of page 7 has matching pieces to tuck in notes, pics, journaling. The frames were fussy cut & could have pics in them

Back of page 7.  The right side is the back of the back cover with the rose fussy cut to allow tuck ins which fell out when photographing
All pages were glued directly to the spine.

Hope this has given you some ideas for mini albums.  The embellishing can easily be used on cards, scrapbook pages & more

Bye for now
