Album Size: 4" x 6" (cover is 4.25" x 6.25)The Scrapbook Cottage and made a cute mini album. I took my instructions and came home and made a ton more. Okay, lol, not a ton, but at last count I made 14, with a few more prepped on my desk to finish. It's one of the one 12x12 sheets type. But with this album you can add as many 12x12 sections that you want. For these I added 2 12x12 sections.
The way the cardstock is cut and folded, you can adhere the pages to make pockets for tags...which is all included in the measurements of the CS and PP.

I found the instructions online at Astrid's Artistic Efforts. It may look complicated but it's not really. I decided to re-draw her cutting instructions for you. For instructions on how to fold and glue, you can click the link in the sentence above.
Album Piece (I used 2 of these)
Cover and Tags
(I increased my spine from 2 1/4" to 2 1/2")
Once you've read Astrid's instructions, here's a diagram of how I like to fold the album.
Using her numbers from the first diagram above. I like to fold 1 up to 2, and 6 down to 5.
Then I fold the bundle at 2 behind 3, and the bundle at 5 behind 4.
And finally fold 4 up to 3.
Then continue with her instructions for gluing the album together, making pockets.
