Inside: how to make inspirational and unique mini album page ideas

 

If you are like me you have probably made many mini album pages before and no doubt they are beautiful. But there comes a time when you are looking for something more than the regular scrapbook structure or shape. You are looking for thew wow factor, that something unique and different that will take your photo album to a new level.  Let's make some odd shape mini album pages!

 

 

 

 

DIFFERENT SHAPE MINI ALBUM PAGE IDEAS

 

When you make a handmade album your first instinct is to make it square or rectangle. But every mini album looks like that and you want to make your DIY photo album unique right? Why not make unusual mini scrapbook album pages that have a different shape?

 

MINI ALBUM PAGE LAYOUT IDEAS

 

Your pages don't need to be the regular square or rectangle shape. They can be:

  • Circle
  • Heart
  • Specific shape like flip flop
  • 3D album in a shape of a box or a milk carton

 

TIPS ON HOW TO CREATE ODD SHAPE MINI ALBUM PAGES

 

DON'T LET THE SHAPE CONFUSE YOU

 

Sometimes when you have to create or embellish a page that has an unusual shape you find yourself intimidated or frozen. Because we're used to working on squares a different shape can be confusing. But don't let that discourage you! Whatever the shape of the page is limit yourself to it's boundaries and work within them.

 

MATCH EMBELLISHMENTS

 

Usually when a page has a different shape it effects what you can or can't put on it. Curved lines for example, don't match the straight lines of an envelope or tag. Use smaller shapes that would fit the space you have and attach them in an angle so they'll fit the curved edge. It's OK if the embellishments stick out a little bit as long as they don't interfere with the binding.

 

USE THE SAME COLLECTION

 

Use the same paper collection for the pages and the embellishments. This way you'll be able to cut out images and shapes to match the theme and colors of the pages. Try to find shapes that have the same characteristics as the page. For example: circles, curved shapes and images that are not squares will fit your pages perfectly.

 

ADJUST SIZE

 

If you want to use a square that is too big for the page adjust its size by cutting it or folding it. This way you'll be able to create interactive mechanisms like flaps and inserts for the mini album.
