Another mini album

This is a tiny mini album, made from a single sheet of 12x12 cardstock. Slice the sheet into four 3” strips, then score at 3” intervals to make an accordion. Attach the whole of one of the end flaps to the end flap of the second piece and then do the same again until you have a really long strip. Either use an odd number of strips or cut off one flap from the end, then attach to your cover pieces. 

To bind it, you can make a spine, as I did (trust me, this was only an emergency measure) or do what you should do; make one piece of ribbon REALLY long and wrap it around the whole album to hold it together and tie at the front.

Have a go – all will become clear when you do it!
