Accordion Book

Well, this is the last of my "catch-up" posts showing projects I've made over the last couple months.  This project is an Accordion Book I was inspired to make after watching Robyn's (My Pink Stamper) video - here is the link.  This was my first attempt at an 'album' like this and I really like how it turned out.  Now I just need to figure out either (1) what pictures to put in it, or (2) who to give this to as a gift.

Although I didn't use my Cricut when working on this project - it does in fact have a Cricut cut on it - I used a left over cut from my scrap stash.  I also used my Cuttlebug "Seeing Spots" embossing folder to emboss the front cover.  The "memories" sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper Family and Friends stamp set.  The ribbon is also from my stash and the flower is a Prima flower.

The front and back covers were made by cutting down an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of Recollections cardstock to 4 1/4 x 4 1/4" and layering 4 pieces together for both the front and the back.  All in all, I cut 8 pieces to 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  The inside was created by using 3 sheets of 8 x 8" DCWV cardstock and scoring it.  For detailed instructions on how to score it - please check out Robyn's video.  I then adhered the 3 pieces together and adhered the 'inside' pieces to both the front and back covers using my ATG gun.

Have a great day.....
