Class # 510 Summer’s Sunniest Shots
Step 1
Cut two 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" squares of AG1180 Blue and Green Pattern. Adhere one piece of chipboard to the center back of each piece of paper. Trim the excess paper from the corners of the paper, removing a triangle shaped piece from each corner. Apply adhesive to each of the remaining edges of the paper and fold the edges over the chipboard.
Step 2
Cut a 6" x 4" piece of AG1179 Green and White Bamboo and adhere it centered on the front cover.
Step 3
To decorate the front cover, cut a 6" x 1 1/2" piece of ivory cardstock. Apply the stickers for “Sunshine” and the palm tree to the ivory cardstock.  [You will need a second piece of cardstock for the tree.]
Step 4

Cut a 6" x 2 1/2" piece of AG1183 Tropical Stripe. Trim the top and bottom with decorative scissors (optional) and adhere the piece to the back of the ivory cardstock.

Step 5
Cut the ribbon into 2, 6" inch pieces and adhere behind the striped paper so it sticks out as a boarder.  [My piece of ribbon was a little on the short side, but it still worked.]
Done!

Class # 510 Summer’s Sunniest Shots
Step 1
Gather one sheet each of AG1178 Palm Leaves, AG1179 Green and White Bamboo, AG1180 Blue and Green Pattern and AG1182 Green Floral. Cut each paper in half so you have two 6" x 12" pieces of paper from each sheet.
Step 2
Fold each of these pieces in half and stand them up like a book with the folded “spine” facing you and the open flaps facing away from you.Line up one of each design left to right in this order: AG1178 Palm Leaves, AG1179 Green and White Bamboo, AG1180 Blue and Green Pattern, and AG1182 Green Floral. This set will make the front half of the accordion pages.
Now, take the other set and line them up with the flaps facing you and the “spine” facing away from you this time and also line up the designs in REVERSE order from above. This will make the back side of the pages. (SEE PHOTOS).
For example, on the front side, you have the AG1179 Green and White Bamboo next to the AG1180 Green and Blue Pattern. On the reverse side, these two will be connected by a folded sheet of AG1180 Green and Blue Pattern.
Adhere the pages to each other, making a long sheet that is accordion folded.
Step 3
You will notice that the ends of this set of accordion pages are not backed by other papers. Apply adhesive to the printed side of these squares and then adhere each of them to the covers of the album.
Cut two 6" x 6" pieces of AG1179 Green and White Bamboo and adhere them to cover the back sides of the paper left exposed when you adhered the accordion pages to the covers.
Step 4
Cut the remaining papers into 5" squares. Use these as photo mats throughout the album.Add the remaining flocked stickers to the pages to complement the photos! [It is left up to you.  Have fun designing your own pages to fit your pictures.  Tip:  use the corners of a paper to make photo corners on a coordinating mat.]
Done!
