It's no secret I enjoy making projects, especially mini albums and handmade books. Our online store has a variety of project downloads available. It's just like taking a private "virtual workshop"! Many of these projects, like the Trifold Album Workshop, would make great gifts for the upcoming holiday season. Why not get started now?

Industrial Evolution Trifold Album

The first step is to download the Trifold Album Workshop Instructions. Your purchase includes a link to a handy full-length video tutorial that supplements the written instructions.

To replicate my version, you'll need to gather a few basic tools, along with an Industrial Evolution Page Kit and three sheets of Black Folding Board.

The finished book measures approximately 6x9" and is just one inch thick. But don't let that fool you...there's plenty of room inside for photos and memorabilia.

Just as the "trifold" name indicates, the interior of the book is divided into three main sections.

On the left, a pair of mini folios feature a closure constructed from a punched card stock circle and a brad.

The center section features an interactive waterfall panel designed to hold 10+ photos. Embellish the reverse side of each panel with cutaparts (or additional pictures).

The third section of the trifold features a pocket with closure. As the artist, you have the option to fill the pocket with whatever you desire!

I used additional papers from the page kit to create a simple 5.25x8.25" pamphlet-stitched insert. It tucks neatly inside the pocket and is a great place to preserve even more photos.

Fill the insert with photo mats (trimmed from 12x12 papers) and add cutaparts, ribbons and other embellishments from the page kit.

It's so easy to customize this project to fit your needs. I invite you to visit our full selection of projects (and workshop downloads) currently available in the store.

Let's make it a handmade holiday this year!
