G45 Pocket Album

This week Graphic 45 is celebrating

Alumni Takeover Week.

As a Graphic 45 Design Team Alumni

you may have seen this mini-book on their blog this past Monday (Sep 12).

I used Graphic 45's Communique Collectors Kit

and the 

Square Tag & Pocket Album.

Comm 2

The front of the album was decorated with a Tiny Matchbox Theatre (coming soon) from

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts

as well as an antique pair of spectacles.

This Graphic 45 mini-book comes with lots of pages inside.

I was able to create pockets by putting two pages together with a hinge.

To make a hinge:

You will need:

  • Cardstock that matches the pages you want to hinge
  • A Score Board
  • Adhesive
  1. Cut a piece of cardstock as tall as the page you want to hinge (in this case 5") X 1.25" wide.  
  2. With the 1.25" wide side of the paper to the top of the score board, score at 1/2" and 3/4".  This will give you a left side that is 1/2" wide, a 1/4" middle and a right side that is 1/2" wide.  Fold on the score marks.Hinge 1

     3.  Apply adhesive to one of the 1/2" sides (one side only) and apply that 1/2" to one of the pages.

        4.  Do the same thing with the other 1/2" side, creating a pocket that has a 1/4" seam.

Using this method, you may create either a hinged page that folds out,

or a pocket page by closing up the bottom with another hinge

or a flip page.

The photo above shows the center page as a top pocket page

with the 1/4" seam showing.

The possibilities are endless and fun!
