With the help of our 5x7 Handmade Album Online Class instructions, it's easy to transform any CS® Page kit and mat board into a beautiful handmade mini book featuring Club Scrap's unique U-hinge binding. I knew the vibrant color and cheery florals of the Bright Blooms collection would make a great gift. The recipient is sure to cherish it for years to come!

Bright Blooms 5x7 Handmade Album

Gather a Bright Blooms Page Kit and one 12x12 Mat Board. Next, purchase and download the 5x7 Handmade Book Instructions (Flourish version). Use the following paper substitutions when sorting and trimming your papers:

Greenery Print = Big Blossom Print
Wreath Print = Corner Blossom Print
Dk. Green = Black
Brown = White
Lt. Green = Orange/Pink Duplex
Kraft = Yellow

Bright Blooms 5x7 Handmade Book

Follow the instructions and video tutorial provided to assemble the book structure. After assembly, use the remaining paper and embellishments to decorate the book as desired.

Are you ready for a tour?

Crop and mat your favorite cutapart to decorate the book cover. Embellish with a Satin Rosette. (The printed paper is so pretty, it needs only minimal embellishment.)

Tie a length of the Black Ombre ribbon around the cover, next to the spine.

Add trimmed panels, ribbons, and cutaparts to the inside pages and trifold flaps.

Staple a bit of Orange Silk ribbon to the top of a tag cutapart.

Each trifold page opens to reveal even more real estate for photos and embellishments. Each book has plenty of space for 20 or more photos!

Trim border strip cutaparts to 6.75" to fit the nesting panels.

The finished book turned out even better than I imagined! Fill it with photos from a special occasion or event, or gift it to someone special.


You won't believe how easy it can be to transform any CS® Page Kit into an awesome handmade gift. Just imagine possibilities - the ability to customize each book to the personality of the recipient or to document a special event/occasion.

I'm pretty sure I'll be making more of these in the future. Click on the links below to gather everything you need to make one for yourself.
