decoupage a mini album


  • Foam brush
  • Mod Podge
  • Small plastic tray
  • Paper, fabric or ribbon (I used Bella Blvd papers)
  • Flat embellishments
  • Chipboard or old book cover (I used a vintage book cover)





  1. Start by measuring your naked cover and choosing paper or fabric. Once it’s measures cut the paper down to fit leaving a 1” border around all sides. Trim the corners away to make good folding corners.
  2. Next add a layer of Mod Podge and using either your hand or a Brayer smooth the paper onto the cover.
  3. Fold the flap over also using Mod Podge and hold to secure. Add a thick layer of Mod Podge over the top and layer more paper or embellishments from there.
  4. Each layer should get a little Mod Podge and in the end cover the entire thing and let air dry for about ½ hour.
