Mini Accordion Book

Hello Bloggers

An accordion book using the Damask Garden papers shows how well the blues & greens in the collection work so well together   

Cover of the book. To make a transparency extremely effective, fold down on each side of the body. Score the folds & allow the wings to fly.  Double sided tape on the body attached the butterfly perfectly.  The bees wings were also folded up a little to give dimension.

Inside front cover & page 1 - the lady is my Great Grandmother. I love double mounting

 The accordion book has 6 pages - 2 inside the covers & 2 opposing pages.  To add more pages you can use cardstock pasted to the pages. The middle of the accordion book had flaps added to both pages using cardstock.

Inside the second flaps

Inside back cover - room for tags, music transparency & of course, some lace

Back cover which should never be ignored

Hope this gives you some ideas - I love the accordion book kits  - they just wait to be painted, embellished, papers added & more ....

Bye for now
