Customize the album for a special mom using cutaparts from the Mother's Day version of the page kit.

I filled the album with photos of my niece and her son. I plan to give it to her on Mother's Day when he turns 18.

Lavender Fields Mini Album Instructions:

To create the inside pages of the book, gather eighteen 7x10" Lavender Fields papers. Score and fold each paper horizontally at 5". Pierce stitching holes into the fold of each signature at .75, 1.5, 2.75, 4.25, 5.5, and 6.25". (A Piercing Cradle makes it easy!)

Kettle stitch the signatures together with waxed linen thread. Slide beads onto the thread where the long stitch lands on the outside of the binding. Add 1x5" paper stabilizing strips to reinforce the mini album.

Once the stitching is complete, adhere the stabilizing strip ends to front and back covers with Bookbinding glue. Embellish the front and back covers with layered panels.

The completed spine is both bold and dramatic!
