Club Scrap's Big Deal Blog Hop

Welcome Big Deal Blog Hoppers!

This month I've put together a Glue-Free Cover Accordion Mini Album made from February's Big Deal Collection. By the way, this blog hop originates at Club Scrap Creates if you would like to start at the beginning.




1. Start with (2) 3x4" Matte Board Covers, (2) 3x7" Vertical Paper Covers, and (2) 6x4" Horizontal Paper Covers. Use a bone folder to score and fold paper around matte board for both horizontal and vertical paper wrap.



2. While holding the vertical wrap in place on one side of the matte board, slide the horizontal wrap between the matte board and vertical wrap, covering the other side of the matte board.




3. Cut (5) 12x4" strips for the inside accordion and score every 3".


4. Attach papers together to create accordion and cut pop-outs for added interest.


5. Trim first and last panels of accordion to aid in sliding into front and back covers.


6. Decorate accordion. I stamped the card suits from the Big Deal Collection UMs and cut them out for a fun embellishment. 




7. Slide accordion into front and back covers.



8. Use Ivory Cut-Apart to create belt for holding accordion mini album.


Next on the hop is Cathy at The Artful Gamut. Go check out her project now!

Thanks for looking, and I wish you a creative day.

  3. Kay just love your Glue Free book. This was one of the first prizes I ever won from Club Scrap and was amazed at how fun and easy it was. This one has such dimension and loving the way the little die cut card suits stamps pop out!

  6. Lol, Toni - I read "gluten free" too! Not enough coffee yet I suppose...

    Kay, I am so impressed with this glue-free book - all of those nooks and crannies and 3D elements you created really makes this special. I will have to try this technique out! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. Thanks a lot! It's a rather simple mini album structure that I realize many of you have done more than once, but cutting the pop-outs in the accordion made it more interesting I think:)
