FALL into some FOLDING Fun!

For today's Scor-Pal project with the fabulous Autumn Splendor collection from Die Cuts With a View I decided to use the new Scor-Envi tool to create an envelope album.

You start with 9 1/2" squares of cardstock/paper (as per the instructions on the Scor-Envi tool)

Following the instructions on the tool score at 2 3/4 and 9 1/4, rotate a 1/4 turn and repeat. Burnish the scored lines and snip the small triangle away (I find it makes a cleaner corner if you do this)

Using the 1/8" Scor-Tape attach 3 of the flaps to form the envelope

Using the 1/2" Scor-Tape attach the flaps of 3 of the envelopes to form the album leaving one open at the top.

Fold the envelopes into the album pattern you wish and burnish the folds again to form crisp folds.

Using a punched strip of cardstock 12" by 1" score between each scallop and mid way on each scallop (the distance will vary depending on which punch you use for the decoration). Attach the ends of the strip together (I like to use hot glue) and form the circle into a rosette.

Make a "belly band" to hold the album together with cardstock and add the rosette as the decoration.

Decorate as you wish, I made decorated inserts for each pocket, ready to add photos to.
This is what it looks like completed.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that they will inspire you and your Fall crafting.
