2. Prepare the interior of the structure of the leaves using the 9 1/2in x 7 3/4in in light grey already scored you need to fold the small part going to be part of the base, and the larger is for the leaves, then cut the corner of each as you can see in the photo.

5. Prepare the leaves using the cardstock at 8 1/2in x 5 3/4in and already scored, use two of them and star to paste from the scored part to made a pocket open in two sides and decorated with the pattern paper (7 1/2in x 5 1/2in), once the five leaves are ready you need to paste in the spine of the album with strong adhesive.
