KATHY ORTA from Paper Phenomenon developed this style of binding pages into an album. It is not difficult to do once you master the scoring and side tabs to lock your binding into the cover.
When I saw the new “Botanical Tea” Papers by Graphic 45 I knew that this was the style of album I wanted to use, it gives a professional and strong finish allowing you to add as many pages as you wish. This Binding system is very versatile as it can be made to any size and page number. This particular album is using a 7 page binder with a 1″ flap either side to lock onto the cover.
The finished album measures 5 1/2″ x 4 3/8″ .
Showing album with pages attached. As you can see it gives a very nice even finish to the album. I have set the binding about 1/4″ from the top and bottom edges. There are three pockets on each page, so potential for decorating this album is endless.
One more Peek. This album is not yet complete but I will post more pictures in the next few days.
I will be running classes teaching the Hidden Hinge Binding Technique in June and July. If you would like to make an album similar to this please contact me: 0414 887738
