Mini Waterfall Album

Hi everyone,

As promised in an earlier post, I can now show you the mini waterfall album I made as a Christmas present for my daughter and my youngest grandson (5 yrs. old). I thought it was a lovely way to show off some family photos and make a gift that will be treasured for a long time.

I learnt how to make this album at a Kaszazz workshop a few months ago and it turned out so well that I know I will make more of these. I have modified the instructions so if you like what you see and want to know how to make one for yourself, contact me for more information - (see my contact details at the top of this blog).

Here is the cover page - the album uses two - 12" x 12" sheets of cardstock (with some left over) and any patterned papers and embellishments of your choice. All you need to add are the photos - one 5" x 7" for the inside of the cover and 6 or more which can be cropped to size to add to the inside panels of the 'waterfall'.

The photo below is of the inside cover which you can decorate any way you choose and it also shows the photo panels in their folded state.

As you pull the tab at the side, the 6 panels slowly unfold to reveal your photos and embellishments (see below). I was fascinated when I first saw one of these albums and I have had the same reaction to mine whenever I show it to other people - they are amazed at how it all works and can't believe how easy it is to make once I show them how.

Each panel slowly opens and falls back on itself creating the 'waterfall' effect.

To close the album, you just push the side tab back in again and the photo panels return to their original positions. You can make this album as simple or as decorative as you like by adding journalling, 3D embellishments, stickers, stamped images, ribbons, flowers, etc.

One of my friends Debbie Pamment has already made one as a gift for some friends of hers - check out her blog here to see her wonderful version.

I hope you like my album and if I have inspired you to create your own, please contact me for more details.

Well, until next time - happy crafting !!
