Star Album Tutorial

I did this tutorial for JuJu Bees Scrapbook Corner. I make these star albums every year for stocking stuffers for family and friends:-) They are super easy and fun to make!

If you have never made one before, here is one way to make them:

Step 1: Cut seven 4 x 12 pieces of cardstock (mine is red)
Step 2: From these strips, cut at 5.5 inches. You will now have seven pieces of 5.5 and seven pieces of 6.5 inch pieces.
Step 3: Cut four 4x12 strips of cardstock (mine is white). Then cut these in half at 6 inches.
Step 4: You will now have all of your pieces to make this album.
Step 5: Fold all of the pieces in half.
Step 6: Put adhesive on the biggest piece and the medium piece on the outside edge only.
Step 7: Adhere them together - edges only - with the smallest piece on the inside.
Step 8: Continue to do this with all of your pieces.
Step 9: Time for finishing touches! Adhere some patterned paper over a piece of chipboard (I used a cut up cereal box). Adhere a piece of ribbon to the front and back of your book and then place your covers over top.
Step 10: Your star book is complete! Add embellishments as desired!
