How To Make a Folio Photo Album Tutorial

Here is my Joyous Christmas album that I made right before Christmas and I wanted to share how to make this folio photo album with you guys.

Joyous Christmas folio album


  I want you guys to be able to make this and have fun with the whole process of seeing this folio album come alive when you decorate it.  I will be giving you the cutting guide for this folio.  Even a beginner can accomplish this album from start to finish.  It’s that easy ladies!  Here is a few pics of what the album will look like, and it doesn’t have to be a Christmas album.  It can be anything you desire it to be.

This is what the folio album looks like when you open it up

This is a view of the folio album of the left hand side of it with photo mats outside of the pocket.

I taught a live class on how to construct this folio over on my Facebook page, I will put the link in here if you would like to go check out my Facebook page.


This folio photo album measures 7 x 7 with a 3/4 spine with a waterfall on one side and flips and pockets.  This album will hold up to 30 of your favorite photos and is a quick and easy folio to make in no time at all.


What I used to complete this folio


Kraft Cardstock from Hobby Lobby

Recollections  Christmas Noel collection form Michaels

Ribbon – for the closure of the album

Small magnet – for a closer on the waterfall

Score-pal tape – for the construction of the album


As you can see, it doesn’t require a lot of supplies to make this folio album.  It took me a total of 4 hours or less to make this photo album!!

You can watch a YouTube Show and Tell of this little cute folio album if you want to see the whole album in all its beauty.
