Fold Up Scrap Album

Heidi Ho - me again ...

Quite a few of you asked for more detailed instructions on how to make my 6x6 Fold Up Scrap Album.  I aim to please, so here is a photo tutorial for you - they really are simple to make.

Start with a 12x12 piece of card stock.  Score at 6" and then turn the paper 1/4 turn and score again.  You end up with 4 even quadrants:



Now cut the score line that is pointing to your tummy up to the mid-point:
Put your Simply Scored Diagonal Score Plate in place and score the top left quadrant from the outside corner to the mid-point:
Fold all score lines:

Now take the bottom right hand quadrant and place it over-top the bottom right hand quadrant:
This is how the completed sections will look:
This is just to show you the concept of the pages.  You DO NOT want to tape these quadrants together yet.  It is MUCH easier to design each page BEFORE it is assembled.  Trust me.  I tried it!  This is how the page folds up:


Ta Da!  You simply make 4 of these and tape them together to form your booklet.  You of course leave the front and back un-taped so it can open!


Decorate and you're done!
Hope that helps - have fun with it!
