For my Design Team Project I decided to submit with my smash album that I made for Christmas.
This is the front of the album as well as a photo of the inside.
2 pieces of Chipboard cut 5" x 5"
2 pieces of Cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
2 pieces of coordinating stock 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Ten squares cut 4"x 4"
3 Sheets of Cardstock 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Favorite adhesive and embellishments
Special Ribbon for closure
Take your 2 pieces of chipboard and your pieces of cardstock that are cut at 5 1/2"x 5 1/2" and adhere to chipboard. Cut the corners at an angle to have nice corners. Then may ink edges if desired at this point. Now take your three sheets of cardstock that are cut at 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" and first fold in half, then turn and fold in 1/2 the other way; then take and fold a third time, but this time on the angle. This way forming a triangle. Now to make them a square you will see that the points want to go inward push them in toward the middle to form a square. Do this to the other two then adhere them together first one points wanting to come upward. The second with the points wanting to go downward; finally the third again like the first one. Now when you fold it correctly your album should close with all the pages in. Now take the ten squares and cut six of them in half. Then the four you did not cut place on your four center squares. Have fun embellishing then enjoy. Take your ribbon and adhere to back of album so that you can tie it closed. I used Glossy Accents to adhere this ribbon. I found this to dry quickly and hold strong.
