An original folding technique !
The making of technique of this mini-album described on this page is not new, far from it! But it is not well known and remember those who had forgotten it is usefull.
With this folding, you will be able to quickly make and decorate a 8-page photo mini-book- from a sheet of A4 paper.
Everything is then possible: embellishments, hardcover ... At your convenience! The only obstacle: to have and use a picture processing software (Photoshop, PhotoFiltre, PhotoImpact, PaintShop Pro ...) in order to place the photos, which will pose no difficulty for many of you.
So get yourself an A4 sheat of paper... and begin!
Making of the mini-album :
how to fold and cut the paper
Start by folding your paper in half (in the height direction). Flatten the fold! Then open the sheet.
Now fold your paper in the other direction while continuing to well score the folds.
Without opening the previous fold, fold again in half :
Open the last fold and cut to the crease central ...as indicate on the sketch
|Now open the sheet and fold it in the height direction. An opening is formed in the center ...
Continue to tighten and push toward the center:
Push more ... the two central flaps back together and fold forward, forming a 3-page mini-book. Fold the fourth page forward ...
Folding your mini-book is finished!
Where to set up the photos?
On the mini-book test, you can number the pages from 1 to 8, with an arrow symbolizing the direction of the photos. Completely unfold the mini album, you can see the map of the page.
You now see where to put the photos during the mini-album making of for their correct assembly ... Remains to work with your image processor to put them in the right place ...
