Squash Albums Made Simple: Tropical Chic Folding Card Tutorial

When was the last time you made something and couldn’t believe how much FUN it was to assemble and then play with your finished project?  The Squash Album Folding Card – or just plain Squash Album – is one of the most fun projects out there. Fun to create, fun to play with, and you better believe it’s fun to receive one!

Picture this project with your photos on the panels – triangle panels or just the square ones, and you can mix and match with any Designer Series Paper, so this project is a perfect fit for my 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper Hacks this month!

Haven’t seen them yet? Yikes – don’t miss out! I’ve shared some great ways to use your DSP, which is perfect timing because you can Buy 3, Get 1 FREE on selected papers during JULY only.

Ready to learn how to make this project? The steps are pretty simple, but you’ll likely find it easier to figure out from watching the video tutorial below. And you can always request my Stamps in the Mail Club kit for July, which includes this project plus 3 others that all feature the Tropical Chic stamp set.

This project is very adaptable. Just pick any size paper and adjust your layers to fit. Base paper squares here are 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″, but I’ve also done these as a fun folding album (fits more photos) with 12″ x 12″ paper squares as the base pages.

  1. Meg this is a great project – definitely one for lots of people to sign or as you mentioned to put photographs in. We do not print off enough photographs these days as they seem to stay on Face book or on our phones or other types of tablets etc. I love the DSP 3 x 3 hacks because at present I am trying to use as much DSP as possible on my projects because it does seem to get left behind and not used enough in projects. Thank you for sharing this particular project with us crafters. :O) xx
