Simple Stories Accordion Album

It's Simple Stories week over at the Epiphany Crafts Blog this week and we got to play with the Simple Stories Harvest Lane Collection.  I wanted to create a mini album that can also be displayed and these accordion albums are perfect for that.

To create it I used two pieces of patterned paper measuring 4" x 12" and scored them at 4" and glued the two pieces together to make the base of the album.

Then I cut out the 4" x 6" journaling cards from the patterned paper and adhered them onto each of the sides of the album.
I decorated the cover with the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Tool Square and the Square Metal Charms.  I found a sticker on the sheet that was the perfect size to fit into the square charm and attached it with some twine.

I used the stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet to decorate the pages.  I really love how this type of album can be placed on a shelf or mantle and displayed.

Thanks for stopping by.
