Inside: how to make a one sheet wonder mini album
I sometimes feel bored with making mini albums and that I'm doing the same things over and over again, so I decided to challenge myself to do something different. The challenge was to make a mini album from only one sheet of 12x12 cardstock including a cover...
WHAT IS A ONE PAGE WONDER PROJECT
A one sheet wonder project is a craft project that is made from only one piece of paper, ususally fom a 12x12 or a 8.5x11 paper. These projects are usually mini albums and cards and they are very popular because they are easy and fast to make.
