Directions Setp by Step:
  1. Cut <CmpctCard> from black chipboard
  2. Cut <CmpctCard> from Audrey Patterned Paper
  3. Flip the image and cut <CmpctCard> from Audrey Patterned Paper
  4. Using ATG tape, adhere the Audrey paper to the chipboard
  5. Using an Xacto Knife, cut the chipboard cut and the Audrey cuts from <CmpctCard> along the seams. You will now have 3 pieces
  6. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock at 2 inches by 1.25 inches.
  7. Using Martha Stewart Scoreboard, score every ¼ inches on each one.
  8. Fold into an accordion firmly
  9. Cut 4 small strips of Terrifically Tacky Tape that are 1 ¼ inches long. Apply along outer spine of the scored paper on each side (on the 1 ¼ inch side).
  10. Glue the spine to the left hand cut and then glue the other side to the middle. Repeat for the other side.
  11. Using a Circle Cutter, cut the pages of the album (George or Plantin Schoolbook could be used to make these as well). First cut the black chipboard at 3.75 inches 4 times.
  12. Using Circle Cutter, cut Audrey paper at 3.75 inches 8 times- 4 with one pattern, 4 with another.
  13. Using ATG tape, adhere the Audrey paper to the Chipboard
  14. Cut 4 more strips of TTT at 1 ¼ inches and apply them to the spine for the inside pages.
  15. To conceal the accordion folds of the spine, cut 2 flowers off a ribbon and use TT to adhere them to the covers. Plain ribbon could be used as well.
