Our love affair with Paper Crafts, as well as Easy Origami for Kids continues. Yes, paper never ceases to astound me, in it’s versatility! There really are endless paper crafts for kids that you can make! Today, we share a super duper cute Mini Photo Accordion Book – origami photo album. It is based on a super simple Origami Photo Frame, that we have made a few times here on Red Ted Art, but that has one additional (slightly!) trickier step, in order to turn them into these darling little paper photo albums.
I love that you can make this origami folding photo album out of plain paper, pretty paper, colourful paper.. any which way you want. Make it plain and decorate. Personalise. Turn it into a friendship photo album or a mother’s day photo album. The handy little size, makes it perfect for fitting in a handbag or purse. Oh how cute these mini photo books are!
Mini Paper Photo Books – Materials
- Per accordion page you need 2 square pieces of paper – we used origami paper which is approximately 15x15cm wide. But you can also cut down A4 paper and create 2 square piece per sheet. These Mini Accordion Photo Albums and be as LONG as you wish. We chose six pages. So used 6 rainbow coloured origami sheets.
- You **may** choose to use a little pritt stick.
- Ribbon for tying (optional)
