Scor-Pal Accordion Album with Tutorial

Previously shown on the Scor-Pal blog but here in case you missed it
For my project for the Pink Paislee meets Scor-Pal week I decided to go with an accordion style album. The graphic lines of the Portfolio collection lead me to an office supplies/library kind of theme and I thought a simple accordion fold would be a great way to showcase the fabulous design.

Project Recipe:
Tools - Scor-Pal and Scor-Mat
Adhesives - Scor-Tape
Paper and Accents - Portfolio Collection by Pink Paislee
Border Punch - Martha Stewart

I started with 2 pieces of designer paper measuring 12" by 7".

I scored at 3 3/4", 7 1/2" and 11 1/4" with the 12" side being at the top fence of the Scor-Pal. Do this on both pieces.

On the 3/4" flap that is left at the end of the scoring add a line of Scor-Tape
so you can attach the two pieces together.

Attach the two pieces and accordion fold, burnishing along all score lines.

Cut a coordinating piece of paper measuring 12" by 1" and using a border punch, punch along the long side. Using the Scor-Pal score in between each scallop of the punched edge and in the middle of the scallop. (this will vary depending on which punch you use for decoration.

Using the strip create a rosette and top with a coordinating button.

Create a pocket for one of the pages from a piece of paper 4" by 4 1/2". Score at 3/4" and 3 3/4" along the 4 1/2" side, rotate and score at 1/2". Burnish all score lines

Using Scor-Tape
attach the sides as in the photo.

Use more Scor-Tape
along all edges to create a good bond when attaching to the album.

Decorate the album as you desire. This is the front.
