Pineapple Shaped Mini Album

Hello friends, I hope you had a fun weekend! I heard June 27th was International Pineapple Day. I never knew there was such a day but ... it inspired me to create a pineapple accordion mini! So, tadaaaaa! I never made one of these before but I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

The yummy pineapple has been known as a symbol of welcomeness and hospitality so ... while I was making this, I thought of a few fun ideas for it. It would be a really sweet gift for a new neighbor to welcome them to the neighborhood. 🏡

You could use this in a vacation rental to welcome your guests. Fill it with local information they might find useful like great shopping, restaurants and fun activities. Or use it as a guest book where they can leave positive comments or signatures for others to read.

Fill this with photos from a tropical themed birthday party, anniversary, bridal or baby shower or ... a Hawaiian luau! Add lined paper instead of photo mats and again, it could be used as a guest book! 

Change out the Welcome title (which btw is from the Doodlebug Hello Chit Chat, link below) and you could save your summer photos here. It would be great for a weekend getaway, pictures by the pool or beach side with a Pina Colada in hand! Yum!

Tropical or Hawaiian themed nursery? Adorable! Fill this little album with sweet baby pictures. But, maybe leave out the cocktail die cuts, lol!

I love the bright colors, tiny pineapple printed paper, pink flamingos & palm trees from the Doodlebug Fun in the Sun Collection. One of my favorites! I used the icons stickers which were the perfect size and also incorporated Bella Blvd Besties Hearts and Ombre paper in Bell Pepper & Guacamole. (Links below)

To create the shape of this album, I used the Doodlebug cutting file called Pineapple (link below). The Hello Sunshine die cut and the pink heart are from the Fun in the Sun, This and That. You can find some of this Doodlebug collection at Starlit Studio HERE like the pretty Paradise Plaid shown in the pic above.
I hope this mini inspires some cute pineapple projects! 🍍

  2. So cute! Do you have tutorials available to show how to make an accordian album. I’m sure it’s probably simple but for newbies all of this can be overwhelming.
    Thank you for the inspiration.

    1. Hi Judy! I don’t, but I could try to make one :). I did this with my Silhouette cutting machine. Do you have a cutting machine?

  3. Can’t find the paper anywhere 😞

    1. Check out Starlit Studios! She may not have the exact papers, but Doidlebug’s Sweet Summer collection is very close :)

  4. This is so darling!!! Loving the pineapple shape!!!
