Class # 502 Pretty As A Picture

Accordion Album

Click image for a larger picture.
 

This project will be created in steps. First, you'll make the sleeve for the finished mini album, then the base for the mini album and last, the three 6" x 6" pages for the album.

[This sleeve is a very tight fit.  Rather than trying to enlarge it, you might want to just trim your chipboard pages a smidgen.]

 

Step 1
Cut a 7 1/2" x 12" piece from the 12" x 12" ivory cardstock. Position the paper so that the smaller side is parallel to the edge of the table. Mark and score the paper at 1/2" and 3/4" in from each side, so that the scores go up and down. [For each measurement, you will start on the outside edge.]
Pivot the paper so that the larger side is parallel to the edge of the table. Mark and score the paper at 5 7/8" and 6 /8" [My carpenter says you never give a measurement of 6/8". The correct measurement would be 6 1/8"] so that the scores go up and down.
Step 2
Turn the paper again so that the smaller side is parallel to the page [table]. Make cuts from the 3/4" score marks to the first horizontal score mark. Make another cut along the second horizontal score lines to the same 3/4" score lines.
Step 3
Carefully fold the paper up along the score lines. Bring the trimmed side up and adhere the inside of this piece to the flaps at the other sides and the bottom tabs. This makes a neat tidy box.
Step 4
From a sheet of AG1133 Evelyn Stripe, cut a 3" x 12" strip from one edge of the peach section to the opposite edge of the peach section next to it. From AG1137 Large Floral, cut a 2" x 12" section. Adhere it to the center of the AG1133 Evelyn Stripe
Step 5

Adhere this piece to the sleeve, centering it onto the back center of the sleeve, with the paper running parallel to the opening of the sleeve.

Wrap the ends around to the front of the sleeve and adhere. The ends of this paper will not meet.
Step 6
Cut a 4 1/2" x 2" piece of AG1134 Orange Floral. Adhere it to the center of the sleeve front, covering the opening between the striped piece of paper. Cut a 4" x 1 1/2" piece of ivory cardstock. Apply rub on to the ivory cardstock and adhere it to the center of the orange floral paper.
Step 7
Rub on two flowers onto scraps of ivory cardstock. Trim the flowers and adhere them to the cover.
Done!

Chipboard Album
Step 1 & 2

Cut two 4" x 6" [Should be 3X6".  You will want to cut your paper into four 6X6" pieces first.   You will use the three 6X6" squares later.] pieces of AG1135 Soft Pink Floral.

Stack three pieces of chipboard neatly on top of each other. Adhere one of the AG1135 pieces to the right edge of the top chipboard, with half of the paper hanging over the edge. Lift up the middle piece of chipboard with the top piece. Adhere the remaining half of the AG1135 to the underside of the middle piece of chipboard. Re-stack the chipboard as it was to begin with.

Step 3
Turn the stack over by turning it from the left to the right as if you were turning a page. Repeat the hinging with the second piece of AG1135 in the same way you did with the first two pieces. This will mean that the middle piece of chipboard will be connected to paper on two sides. You will also be able to unfold the chipboard pieces as an accordion-folding album.
6 X 6 Pages: General Preparation

Score the paper 3" [1.5" not 3"] in from one short end of the stripe; fold under this piece and adhere.
