Gatefold Album Tutorial

Gatefold Album Tutorial

In this Tutorial, we will be learning to use varied techniques to construction a full size (10” x 12”) interactive gate fold album. The basic construction of this album includes multiple variations of the pocket page. The album will accommodate pictures up to 8” x 10”. It will contain lots and lots of Real Estate to attach photos to.  The techniques presented in this tutorial are techniques that can be adapted to create other album types.  A moderate to advanced skill level is required to meet the challenge of this project.
