Day-to-day pocket mini album - with a quick tutorial!

Happy Wednesday everyone!'t we all looking forward to another long weekend, yes? Wouldn't it be great if we have this like...every other month? Hehe....

This month of February, I would like to kick start the DT post with a simple tutorial for a 'Day-to-day pocket mini album'. Yeah...quite a mouthful title to it but believe me; it is such a simple craft project to do. I was actually inspired by the patterened paper which comes with the Feb DT kit, which is the main pp I have used here in this project. Scroll to the bottom of this post on how to construct one. 

This pocket mini album has a slot on each page with a special tag inserted in each. You can write daily reminders or your favourite daily quotes or even things to accomplish each day for the rest of the week! And the best thing is, you can just slip it in your handbags and you are ready to go! 

See the tag below, which is for the Sunday slot. 

A bit on how-to do this pocket mini album:

1) Cut out a piece of 9 x 3" of pp and fold in the middle. You will get now a 4.5 x 3" folded piece.
2) Cut out a piece of 4 x 1" pp. Fold it on the shorter side into half. This will become a 4 x 0.5" folded piece.
3) Cut out a piece of 1x1.5" pp. Fold it on the shorter side into half. This will become a 1.5 x 0.5" folded piece.

Attach the no.2 piece to the bottom of the pp no.1 done earlier. Secure it with glue. Do the same with no.2 onto the side of pp no.1 and secure with glue. Use a punch to poke 2 holes on the side of pp. no 1.

Now you can start putting in your embellies as you like!  And don't forget to do your 'days' tab and stick it onto the inner top side of the slots! Lastly, add your tags to be inserted into each daily slots!

Easy peasy lemon squeasy!
