Tricia recently developed a new mini album that can be created using any Club Scrap page kit. The finished U-Hinge Book measures 5.25x7.25" and is designed to easily hold horizontal 4x6" photos. The instructions and video tutorial are now available for immediate download in our online store.
You can load up the inner pages liberally with photos and embellishments because the unique spine structure features a 1/4" gap between pages to allow for expansion.
Creating the book is somewhat involved, but if you follow Tricia's instructions step-by-step, you'll experience success. Visit the project landing page for details and a list of tools and supplies needed to complete the book. And for a limited time, you can purchase a Craft Along project bundle, while supplies last.
U-Hinge Book Project
During the development of any project, Tricia makes one or more prototypes or samples. Below are photos of the three different versions of the U-Hinge Book. Each book has a completely different "feel". You, too, can customize the U-Hinge Book to suit any occasion or theme.
This version was made using the Peony Page Kit, which features papers and embellishments with a soft, feminine feel.
The interactive pages open to reveal more real estate for photos and embellishments.
Gone Wild Remix
Creating a U-Hinge Book from the Gone Wild Remix kit gives it a completely different feel from the Peony version.
Round the corners of each flap on the inside pages for a fun twist.
If you're going for a more masculine or outdoorsy feel, create your book using the Lakes Remix kit.
This mini album would be perfect for documenting a special vacation or any outdoor adventure.
I recently made a U-hinge Book using the Beautiful Noise Page Kit. Visit my blog post for details and additional photos.
And if you're looking for tips on embellishing your U-Hinge Book, Julie's post is sure to give you plenty of ideas.
I hope seeing this array of finished samples will inspire you to give this project a try. Happy crafting!
