Club Scrap Blog Hop: Adirondacs

Welcome to the monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop.
We present to you the May Adirondacs kit.
You can see all the participants on the main
but if you are hopping, you came over her from
Pam's Blog
and seen her lovely ideas with this kit.

I came up with this fun
Accordion pop- up 
album
that I have seen around and is just
perfect for this paper and pictures I have ready.

First I tel you what you need:
1 piece of cardstock: 9 x 12 inch (here blue)
2 pieces of bookboard 9,25 x 3,25 inch
2 pieces of paper 4,25 x 10,25 inch (here the arrow paper)
2 pieces of  9 x 3 inch (here red)
ribbon
bookbinding adhesive

Let's start with the bookcovers.
Use the bookbinding adhesive to glue
the bookboard to the paper. Fold the paper
around the bookboard and glue this too.

 Take the red ribbon from the kit and cut it in half.
Glue this half way of each of the book covers
and then cover this with the red paper with
bookbinding adhesive.
Now the covers are ready for decorating.
Here is the template for the inside of the book.
I scored everything first before cutting. So score
every 3 inches horizontal and vertically, then cut the 
middle part like you see above. 
Here you see how everyting looks folded.

This is from above and helps you the first time
you start folding.

Now you are ready to decorate the inside with pictures
and cut apparts from the kit.

When everything is done, you glue the
inside to the cover of the book and
you are ready to tie the ribbon around the
book to close it.

This is the cover of the book with
some of the cut aparts and little embellishements
I have left over from other Club Scrap kits
in the past. 
When you untie the booklet you see
the folding popping out.

And this is the inside of the booklet:
Owen doing some exploring in our garden.

At school the subject was insects and he colored this
butterfly beautifully. 

And around the garden he foun some ladybirds,
which he put in a small glass jar for showing in class.

Of course Aiden looked around too!

How about drawing a ladybird. Yes oma, I did 14 feet,
just for fun, I know they have six, I learned it at school.

Colin also looked at some grass growing while
Owen was putting the ladybirds in the jar.

Just one more look at the folds.

Now let's see what
Jennifer's Blog
gives you for fun inspiration.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
