Creativity Prompt – How To make A Double Accordion Brag Book

Friday, June 26th, 2009

How To make An Accordion Brag BookFor this week I have a 5-minute-project for you. An adorable little brag book with a fun foam cover that makes it extra “snugglable”.

It is cute. It is easy. It is super, light-speed, quick and it is made with very inexpensive materials. The perfect project.

Put a 2″ by 3″ photo with a 1″ by 3″ piece of patterned paper or journaling strip on each page for the quickest scrapbook ever.

How To

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Cut fun foam to 3½” by 9½”.
  2. Cut 2 cardstock strips of 3″ by 12″ each.
  3. Score each strip at 3″, 6″ & 9″. You can just align your score lines with the 3″ mark on your paper trimmer.
  4. Fold your score lines – once up and once down – to create an accordion fold.
  5. Adhere the folded cardstock strips to the fun foam with a double sided adhesive. Optional – Before attaching each cardstock strip, you can add a strip of ribbon to it – just align the middle of the ribbon with the center point of the back of the cardstock and adhere to the fun foam. Tie the ends of the ribbon in a bow to make sure your accordion fold stays put.
  6. Find the center of the fun-foam cover’s flap with the grid ruler and mark 1″ on each side. Cut along these marks all the way to the bottom of the flap and snip off the ends.
  7. Adhere the velcro or magnetic snaps to the flap. To make sure the aligning is perfect, adhere both parts of the velcro while they’re attached together and then peel off the backing and close the flap. To allow some room for bulky embellishments, make sure you don’t close the flap too snag.
