Booking It - Scor-Pal Style with Steph Ackerman

Hey everyone, this cute little accordion album would make a perfect brag book for a new baby and is made from only one sheet of double sided pattern paper.

To begin, score the paper vertically every 3"
Turn the paper and score at the 6" mark

Fold the paper in half, then fold along the 3" score lines to create an accordion effect

Score, trim and fold each section as follows:

Score the first section from the fold to the score line
Cut the corner from the 2nd panel, approximately 1" from the score line
Cut from the fold line to the top edge of the 3rd panel
Cut 4" down and across to the score line on the 4th panel

Double fold the top edge of the first panel and adhere with Score Tape

Cut pattern paper to fit the inside panels
Adhere ribbons between the layers of the first and last panels
Add Score Tape along the bottom of the panels and along the edges of each scored panel

Gently ink all edges with Ranger Pumice Distress Ink
Add ribbons to office tags and insert in the panels

Decorate the book as desired
I added a Memory Box die cut baby carriage on the front cover

Thanks for stopping by today.
