Accordion Album Page




How's the New Year going at your place? I'm getting back into the swing of things at last!

I decided to take up a challenge and scrap a page about a significant birthday.
I also wanted to fit heaps of photos on one page. I used an accordion album to do this. You can see from the pictures how it is done - all I did was fold up a piece of cardstock and use each flat surface as a picture area! You could make your accordion longer or shorter. Attach more cardstock folds for a longer album, but bear in mind that will make it thicker when it is folded up. How thick a page can your album take? LoL!

I have the layour in a magnetic frame right now and once I put it in my album, I will cut a piece out of the page protector so the album can still be unfolded by any viewers. I'll need a little flat clip for it or maybe I can make a little 'clip' out of cardstock by using a circle or other shape and my slit punch - hmmmm! I'll let you know what I decide!
