Meandering Mini Album

I promised you instructions for making another mini album, so here they are...

This time, we are creating a "Meandering" Mini Album, as that's what you end up doing with your one piece of cardstock that you start with.

Score your cardstock at 3", 6", and 9". Turn your cardstock and score the other direction at 3", 6", and 9". Then you are going to cut your cardstock as shown in the photo below on the red lines.Then you just start at one end and accordion fold (or "meander") your way to the end of the paper.Once that is done, you are ready to decorate your pages. I chose to use up a bunch of scraps to decorate my pages (what a great use of scraps).Cut 2 pieces of chipboard at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and cover them with patterned paper of your choice. Add a ribbon or hemp to tie your book closed and then put your little album inside your covers.Finished...Faster, Simpler, and Easier - just the way I like it!

As always, if you have questions or just plain don't understand, let me know and I will try to explain better.

Happy Scrappin'
