Take one piece of the 6 x 6 printed paper or fabric and
place on table with the wrong side up. Center one of the 4.5 x
4.5 cardboards on top (Fig. 1). First, fold each corner of
fabric and glue all of the corners down (Fig. 2). Next fold and
glue the sides in place (Fig. 3). Repeat with the other 6 x
6 fabric/paper and 4.5 x 4.5 cardboard. Set aside to dry.
Take your 3 5 pieces of 8 x 8 cardstock. Fold in
half across both ways (Fig. 4). Then fold each sheet diagonally
across only once (Fig. 5). Make sure that the diagonal folds
opposite/backwards of the cross half folds.
each cardstock piece and lay it in front of you so that you are
looking at it as a diamond shape. Then take the right and left
corners and pull them in and down towards the bottom corner (Fig.
6). This will fold the paper into a smaller 4 x 4 square
your 3 5 folded cardstock squares one on top of the other. If
you are using different colors of cardstock, arrange the colors in
your desired order. When you stack your squares, you will need to
alternate the openings. Your top square will have its opening side
facing you. The next will face its opening away from you, and so
the 3 5 squares together. Do this by gluing the bottom of the
top square to the top of the next square and so forth. Allow each
to dry a bit before gluing the next one to avoid them all sticking
Glue the covered 4.5 x 4.5 cardboards pieces to the top and
bottom of your accordion-style cardstock pieces. Center the
cardstock in the middle of your cardboard.
1 -You can glue your strips of ribbon closure in place before
gluing the covers on. Cut ribbon in half and place each ribbon
strip with the loose end coming out from a
corner. Match the cover
with the folded cardstock to find the opening of the scrapbook and
correct placement of the ribbon. Then glue the folded cardstocks
2 After gluing the book together, tie the book shut with the
yard of ribbon tied into a bow on top of the book. Then use a
small amount of glue and glue the ribbon in place on the bottom of
the book. This will enable the ribbon to stay attached to the book
even when it is untied.
