How to make an 8x8 accordion fold album, Sat., Nov. 19, $20, 2:30 to 4:30 pm

I wanted to keep the Christmas 8x8 album simple compared to the Halloween album so I'd have a lot more room for photos as in a normal scrapbook.

this is the 4x4 accordion fold pocket that goes inside or on a scrapbook page

In this class we will make an 8x8 accordion bound album and also the 4x4 accordion fold pocket that can go on any scrapbook or mini album page -- it unfolds and reveals extra pages for your photos on both sides. The Halloween mini album (see separate post) is actually a 6x6 album, so if you wanted to make that size, we will modify the 8x8 easily for you. You will be making one album and one mini 4x4 to go inside. These are very sturdy albums that don't require chipboard covers. This is part one of the mini album series. The matchbook and special tags will be offered at a later date.

I will also bring some of my leftover embellishments from the makings of the Halloween mini album if you are interested in any of that to purchase. Class will start at 2:30. Please bring a paper trimmer, about 8 sheets of 12x12 cardstock medium weight, and about 10 sheets of all one color of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock for the album pages. You will also need a roll of 1/2" two sided tape and scissors. Please bring a scoring board also. If you don't have one, let me know and I'll bring an extra one for you to borrow. We won't be embellishing these in class, so you don't need to bring any scrapbook paper, just your cardstock. Please email me by Friday 11/18 if you would like to take this class or call me at 410-381-7944.
