Double Accordion Album

Another Bind-It-All project, YAY! I designed this project as a "challenge" during online-TAC-seminar on Paper Wings. Hope you enjoy it too!

by Vicki Hook

(4) 4” x 4” cardstock
(2) 3 3/4” x 9 3/4” cardstock
(2) 3 3/4” x 6 1/2” cardstock
(10) 3 1/4” x 2 1/2” cardstock OR tags, circles, etc.
(2) 4” square chipboard coasters
Bind-It-All & 5/8” O-wire
Adhesive, ribbon, stamps, ink, etc.

1. Score both 9 ¾” long cardstocks at 3” and 6” using the Scor-Pal. Fold accordion style (mountain, valley, mountain)

2. Score both 6 1/2” long cardstocks at 1/2” and 3 1/2”. Fold accordion style.
3. Adhere the 1/2” sections of the step #2 cardstocks to the back of the 3” sections of step #1 cardstocks. (See the picture above how they overlap in the back.) You should now have two long accordion folded pieces that are 15 3/4” long. Each piece will have one end section that is longer than the other sections.
4. Cover the front and back of both coasters with the 4” x 4” cardstock pieces and adhesive.

5. Using the Bind-It-All, punch holes in one side of each coaster as well as the longer end section of each accordion folded piece.

6. Assemble the album with 5/8” O-wire. The longer end section of the accordion pieces will be next to the coasters and the folded parts will face each other in the middle. So this album will open in the middle and you pull the accordions out to the sides, one to the left and one to the right.

Let me know what you think and thanks for stopping by!
