Hello everyone! Cassandra here today to share a short tutorial on how to make a DIY magnetic album using the June Kit filled with Crate Paper products!
I found the magnetic tape at my local craft store in Singapore but any similar magnetic products will work fine too!
Cut out the cardboard using the measurements as shown above. Then fold it inwards and glue it down. You may cut the patterned papers at each fold till the start of the cardboard to facilitate folding and glueing it down.
Then use another patterned paper and glue it down. Add the magnetic strip at the last 1" and glue it down to the other patterned paper.
Make the accordion by folding it at 0.5" marking and cut out patterned papers of 4.5"x5" and slot them into the accordion and glue them down. This will form the inner part of the album.
Then glue it down on the album and embellishment it with lotsa yummy goodies from Crate's Journey collection!:D The magnetic strip will hold your album tightly together! Oops if you have already noticed, the sides of the album are slightly torn as I pulled the patterned paper too hard and tight when bending the album. Alternatively, to prevent something like this from happening, reduce the 1" cardboard slightly to about 0.8". That would give it some flexibility from long term handling of the album! Hope it helps!
Thanks for dropping by! Hope you like this project as much as I have enjoyed making it! Till my next update, take care and God Bless!:D
