Make a mini with me! Video series #3 Building the album

We are getting so close to my favorite part!!! Decorating! But in order to get there we need to build the album. The covers, spine and the hinge you will put your base pages onto. 

Here is the video of that process.


Please don't hesitate to ask a question. 
I know it is still tricky for me sometimes and I've made over 20 of these! 

In case you missed them on the video, here are the measurements for the chipboard cover: 2@ 8"x6" for the covers and 1 @ 2"x8" for the spine

Kathy Orta Files "Hidden Hinge" binding system is what I like to use for my mini albums. It's easy to make and sturdy. My measurements for the hinge is 7 3/8"x11".
