Creativity Prompt – Waterfall Mini-Album

February 6th, 2009 by Avital

Waterfall Mini-Album For this week’s Creativity Prompt I have a fun little project for you – The Waterfall Mini Album. It’s a whimsical album that showcases your treasured memories in a playful way.

I have seen a couple of these mini-albums online but non had provided any instructions for assembling it. Therefore I have reversed engineered this album by trial and error with copy paper, until I managed to get it right. It ended up looking nothing like the ones I have seen online, but I love it and I can call it ‘mine’.

Now you can learn from my mistakes and have the full proof way of making your own waterfall mini-album…

      Thank you for your kind comment and thanks for the link – I didn’t know this website before and it looks like a fantastic place to wander at…

    Hi Avital, Might you consider posting written directions? I only have access to the web at work and most of the time, I can’t get videos. I’d love to make this album (I’ve made other projects of yours and your instructions are always so clear – I love it!) but can’t quite get the hang of how to do it from the pictures.

    • Avital says:

      Thanks for the feedback. Would it be sufficient if I wrote down the same written instructions from the video’s captions? (you can find the measurements here. I’ve made this photo public for you).

    LOVE this waterfall mini! I have made it several times and shared it with a friend. Also, I belong to a club of 180 retired women and showed them how to make it too. Thanks for a very successful, useful, economcical project!
    I have enjoyed looking at your creations, thanks for sharing!

    • Avital says:

      Thanks so much! I’m so glad you liked it and shared with other crafts-enthusiasts.

  7. Donna says:

    I too would like detailed written instructions.

    • Avital says:

      I really wish I had time to do that. I’m so sorry I cannot help you right now but if I ever write them down, I will definitely let you know! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Shanice says:

    Hi, may i know how do i make a waterfall album of about 20-30 pages? what are the dimensions that i should follow? thanks it looks great!!!

    • Avital says:

      You need to add the length of your page times the number of pages to the album, and double that for the strip.
