Hello Girls! Today, I'd like to share with you a pocket mini album constructed from polaroid windows in which you can insert mini pages that include both photos and journaling. The principle is relatively simple and very fun! So, lets get started!
Polaroid Pocket steps (Basic Premise of the Album):
1. From patterned paper, cut a slim, tall envelope (Actual Pocket). Cut two squares slightly larger than Pier's small chipboard polaroid frames from different patterned papers. Sew them to the front of the pocket (envelope) as shown above.
2. Position the polaroids on these two pieces of sewn paper and with a pencil, trace in and around the opening of the frames.
3. With an exacto knife, cut the traced areas from the two papers.
4. Finally, adhere the chipboard polaroids to the front cover. On the back, adhere a piece of transparency so as to put embellishments on without them sticking to the photo that will be in the pocket.
I designed four pockets in different sizes to give the album a more eclectic feel; some rectangular, some square, some with large polaroids and others with little to nothing.
I bound the envelopes together with the Bind It All and created a page from each pocket.
I love the idea of pulling the page "out" to see the journaling. In some of the pockets, a photo fills the entire polaroid and on others, they're smaller than the frame, leaving room to see the patterned paper beneath.
Essentially, I mixed two collections; The Pier and Maggie Holmes. There is a hint of Party Day - they match perfectly!
What is ultimately most interesting about the structure of the album is that you can add more photos to the pockets, or even pages. Keep this in mind when constructing an album of your very own.
I hope you enjoyed this splendid, colorful tutorial! Link to us if you happen to make an album like this for yourself - we'd love to see it! Thank-you for spending time with us - see you soon!
