The paper pad is already pre-cut to the size of the mini edgy album. I don't think I'd have the wherewithal to cut the paper so precisely, so thank goodness the process was done for me!
The paper pad had extra sheets of designer paper so that I could create photo backings and journal tags. I rummaged around for beads, buttons, ribbons, twine, die-cut flowers, and anything else I could find to make the pages interesting and layered.
As always with paper crafting, there is no one right way to make the album. Let your creativity soar!
