Rolodex Mini album

Rolodex Mini album using graphically speaking cricut cartridge

You will need…

16 –   8.5″x11″ black cardstock { or what ever colour you would like your base pages to be }

24 – 12″x12″ patterned paper { you may want to choose an entire paper pad collection and go from there }

2 – 8.5″x11″ chipboard { this is optional depending on how you choose to cover your album }

graphically speaking cricut cartridge

using your cricut , cut out the image on page #67 of the graphically speaking cartridge <imag40-s>

Set the size to 5.5″ {five and a half inches}

cut out all cardstock and patterned paper of your choice in this size.

Cutting out 16 cardtock rolodex cards gives you an 8 page album { cut more if you need to }

If you choose to make the exact album as I have made you will need to cut 24 rolodex cards from your patterned paper, giving you the extra to make the additional ” flap down page”  style as I have shown you.

Cut left over cardstock { scrap leftover after cutting with the cricut} into 4 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ strips these are your hinges, score these at 1 1/8th of an inch and 1 3/8th of an inch { placing 2 1/2 side flush with the top of your score board/tool}

Reload remaining patterned paper into your cricut, cut out your favorite tags for extra journaling spots within your album.

***don’t have a cricut, get some rolodex cards from the dollar store trace out onto patterned paper make some hinges and front and back covers and enjoy!!***
