Cut 1/4" from each end of the lower half to make an 11 1/2" x 6" piece with the large holly in the center. Adhere to the bottom half of background sheet AG1229 with even margins on both sides and bottom edge.
Tag Pocket
Cut one sheet AG1230 in half vertically (6" x 12"). Fold both pieces in half, making two 6" squares with the fold at the bottom.
Unfold and cut off 1/2" from both sides of the half with the UPC markings. Then fold the bottom up. Turn the piece over, score flaps. Fold flaps inward and adhere to the back of the pocket.
Punch 1 1/4" half circle at the top center of the open end of pocket.

Class # 517

A Sentimental Holiday

Right Page
Begin:
Cut the second sheet AG1230 to 11 1/2" square. Center and adhere to background sheet AG1223.
Pleated Border
Cut two 12" x 3 3/4" strips AG1229, one from the bottom edge and one from the top edge. On the back of one strip, mark and score at the following measurements across the strip: 1", 1 1/4", 2 1/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", 3 3/4", 4 3/4", 5", 7", 7 1/4", 8 1/4", 8 1/2", 9 1/2", 9 3/4", 10 3/4", 11". This is the center of the pleated border with a 2" box pleat in the center.
After scoring, fold the 5" and 7" folds back and then accordion pleat in each direction from there. Adhere to the center of the page 1 1/4" from the lower edge.
You will now add a pleated section to both ends so it extends across the page. Mark and score the second strip moving at 1" and 1/4" intervals across the strip (1", 1 1/4", 2 1/4", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", etc.). [I cut this piece in half before pleating.  To make your pattern match, you need to pleat in opposite directions.]
Accordion fold the strip. Cut in half to make two 6" pieces. Adhere to both ends of the center strip, overlapping and trimming ends as needed to extend across the page.

Cut and adhere a 12" x 2 1/4"[You will need to make this measurement 2" not 2 1/4" if you are going to make the second measurement 2 1/4" .] strip of music from AG1228 to a 12" x 2 1/4" strip leftover from the first piece of AG1223. Adhere to the center of the pleats. Add sticker to the center.

Photo Mats
Cut remaining strip AG1229 in half to make two 6" pieces. Center and adhere to page.
