Enchanted Forest Petite Album for Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog
Hello, Friends! Welcome to another great challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Cec is our hostess this round, and the theme is “It’s a Small, Small World.” In keeping with that, I’ve prepared an Enchanted Forest Petite Album. But before we look at it, let’s see what Cec had in mind when she imagined this wonderful challenge.
Create or alter something small in a shabby chic or vintage style. Your finished project can be anything from the size of an inchie, matchbook or domino to the size of a playing card or note card, which means anything from 1 inch to 4 inches and it does not have to be flat. Be creative and let us know in your post just how small your project is.
And here’s my Enchanted Forest Petite Album….because it’s mini-er than a mini album!
I found a pattern for a really neat folded mini album that uses just one sheet of 12×12 paper. (You can find it HERE.) I had to cut the size down to make it work for this particular challenge, and after some trial and error, found that a 10×10 square worked perfectly.
If you do try to make one of these albums, I recommend that you use very thin paper…like the brown paper that The Funkie Junkie wraps all orders in. Or, a brown paper grocery bag would work well…and newsprint, too. Otherwise, with all the creasing that goes on, the album becomes too bulky.
The covers are slightly larger than an ATC; they measure 2.5″ x 3.5″ . It’s got quite a lot of room for goodies inside, despite it’s small size. There are two inside slash pockets that I stuffed to the gills (you know me) and there are two hidden pockets between the front and back cover that I loaded up with a couple of fun pull out cards.
A Look Inside the Enchanted Forest Petite Album
Here’s a quick look at the inside spread. The pockets are formed in the folding, which is fun. I fussy cut these gorgeous images from the 8×8 pad and created some fun inserts.
The back of the pockets is lined with black cardstock. I have loads more photos for you to peruse in the short YouTube Video below.
If you click on the little symbol in the lower right corner, you can view full screen. And, if you want to stop and study a page, just click on the pause button. I figured this was easier than overloading you with elebenty hunnerd detail photos.

Kathy! Now you’ve really gone and done it! I cannot believe you can get so many wonderful details into such a small space! I really enjoyed seeing the details on the video–perfect accompaniment, too, for this G45 set in my opinion. You rocked the Small, Small World theme! Big hugs!
Oh I love the enchanted paper and this mini album is the perfect whimsical charming project to showcase it so beautifully! Love it!
Well, it may be small, but it is mighty full of goodies! What a fun project and you’ve chosen beautiful papers. I love it!!!
What an ‘enchanting ‘ mini album, the detail is gorgeous and I love how you used the little postage images from the Graphic 45 collections.
