I really love this die cut. Even though it is possible to make this template from a piece of paper, a bone folder and a scoring board, this die cut makes it fast and super easy to create the template for mini albums and it actually makes it possible to make several mini albums template at once- You just run this die through your cutting machine and make as many templates as you want! It's a fantastic little tool for making simple mini albums in no time! Paired with scrapbook.com double sided adhesive, chipboards and lovely pattern papers and you've got yourself a lovely mini album in no time!
The size of the finished template (once the hinges are ready) are 1.5 inch (W) and 4.5 inch (H)- 5 hinges and wings from both sizes. I wish there were another plate with a higher template (8 inch (H) ) - That would be lovely for making larger albums but this template for mini albums is just perfect, I love it!

This is a helpful tool when making large quantity books.
Last summer I made mini album kits for about 20 kids, while I did cut, score and fold each binding...this tool would have made the process much more fun for me.
This is just one of those helpful tools to have and is so worth it jmho.
Very happy the scrapbook.com carries the latest and greatest tools!
These dies work perfectly, of course. The hinge die saves so much time and the score lines are easy to see and fold, even on 110# paper. The only draw back is that it is so small. I didn't check the dimensions, and for some reason, I thought it was larger. Still, it is a great die to save time for a smaller album.
I haven't quite figured out how to use the edger die but it cuts just fine.
