For my Stamping Bella Tutorial Thursday this week I am making a Camera Box Photo Album that sits into the box I made last week. This project is a labour of love but so worth the effort. I used A Tale of Two Rosies on the Camera Box last week and on the album I've used another Rosie stamp - Rosie and Bernie Plan a Trip. I've also used the Snapshots Mini Polaroid Die, which was still available at the time of preparing the tutorial.

Apply double sided tape on the 0.5" section of the first piece.
Remove the backing from the end of the first scored piece and adhere it to the 0.5" section on one of the three other pieces. Apply double sided tape to each of the 0.5" section on the remaining two pieces and adhere each to the end of the previous piece to make one long album.
To make some flip pages, take the 5.75" x 3-7/8" pieces of card and score at 0.5"
Adhere the 0.5" section to the top of the inside panel. Round the corners of the end. Repeat on the bottom.
On the last section of the album, add two more side opening pages using the 4.25" x 5.5" pieces of card. Score at 0.25" and round the ends of the opposite side.
Adhere all the paper pieces to it's corresponding card piece to create layered panels for the front, back and inside/outside of front flap. (There is no card layer on the inside pages.)
Adhere the front outside panel.
Take the two sides of the magnet closure and stick them together with the stickers to the outside.
Remove the backing from one of the magnet sides and adhere it on the inside front flap.
Remove the backing from the other side of the magnet, close the front flap down onto the front of the album and press down well to secure.
Adhere the inside flap and front panels over the magnets.
Adhere the paper panels to each of the 'pages' and flip pages.
Adhere the paper strips into spines.
Adhere the back panel.
