Charity here with a great big shout out to Lisa for switching days with me this week so I could bring you instructions for this accordions style mini-album and the altered tea box on the same day.
3 yards ribbon
40 squares of patterned Paper…3.5×3.5
assorted journaling cards, embellishments, Kreaxions Punches
Divide squares into 2 groups of 20, for the front and back of the album. Divide the squares for the back of the album into two groups of 9. The final two squares will be for the ends. Fold ribbon in half and mark the middle.
Beginning at the middle of the ribbon sew the first group of 9 squares for the back onto the center of the ribbon leaving 1/2 inch of space between. Sew the front end of the album on as shown in the photo below.
Repeat Step 2, sewing the back end of the album on as shown in the photo below.
Add title and embellishments to each end of the album.
Add Journaling cards, brads, and die-cut embellishments to the squares sewn to the ribbon.
Adhere photos to group of 20 squares, reserved for the front of the album. Adhere squares to prepared album, sandwhich ribbon inbetween. 4×6 photos can be cropped and split between two squares.
Fold book, accordion style, begin with the first page. Tie ribbon, slip into box.
Instructions for the altered tea box can be found on the SWAT blog (here).
A list of supplies used can be found on my blog, Scrappin' Chaos.
