Side B Was made the same way as side A except we move the flaps and the pockets around. These are basic building blocks to the mini album that might take a moment to learn but will guide you into making beautiful albums in no time!

All photo mats are cut .25" smaller than base layer. Always remember measure your pages twice, cut your pages once. 

I also cut out the PL cards but you can use pattern paper measuring 3"x 4" of course with the mat being 3.25"x 4.25"
