It's an accordion album with a difference - I guess the best way to think of it would be two books intertwined. Sounds complicated, but it's not.......it's all made from one die: the Sizzix Bigz Accordion Flip 3D Album.
You simply need to cut out however many pages you'd like in your album. I wanted four, and I followed the simple diagrams in the die packaging to put mine together. Further detailed instructions are available online. Being a Sizzix Bigs die, it can cut a number of pages at once, so the cutting part actually takes very little time at all. Here's how I assembled my book:
I cut four pages from white cardstock, five pages from green patterned paper and four orange stripe centre pieces. I have used KaiserCraft's Curiosity range of papers and stickers.
Glue the green papers to the white cardstock. The fifth green paper will be glued to the front of the book. Sponge all edges with brown ink.
Glue the orange pieces to the centres.
There is a die available that fits perfectly in the centre piece (called the Bracket Frame die), but I found the Spellbinders Labels One a suitable substitute. I cut four of these out from cream polka dot paper and embellished these pieces before adhering them to the book.
I started by applying Coral Glitter Paste through the Fancy Feathers stencil:
and then I embellished each page with stickers and images I cut out from the patterned paper. Here's the front page:
and here's a view from the top so you can see how the book is put together:
Thanks for looking.
