Hello, Katrina here form a very wet, cold, grey England!! Yes it is our summer but so far it has forgotten to turn up! I thought I would challenge myself to just use one collage sheet and make something using as much as of the collage sheet as I can. I decided to make a little accordion book that uses very few materials. This would be ideal to make with children, now the summer hols are almost upon us here in the UK. I chose the Paris theme but any theme will do. Here is how I did it
You will need your chosen collage sheet ( I used Bits of Paris 842 ) a strip of card 12 inches long by the width of your covers, 2 covers ( I used Eco board twinches ) and a piece of ribbon.
Apply double sided tape to the centre of your covers and stick down your ribbon. As my covers are 2x2, I scored my 12x2" strip of card into 2" and folded it into an accordion.
Use a wet glue to stick your covers onto your accordion card
Cut the images from your collage sheet and then I like to play around with them until I get something I like.Ink around the edges of the images with brown Paris ink pads, then stick them all down.
Here is my finished book
Hope you enjoyed this little project,
happy crafting, Love Katrina
