Tall Accordion Album

Mini albums are such great gifts to give!
And they're really fun to created!
This "Tall Accordion Album"
uses the stamp set "Nature Walk" (121997)
and the Designer Series Paper
Botanical Gazette (121783).
HURRY!  Time is almost out to order
these particular items from the
Occasions Mini Catalog
(see link to the right.)

The 2-1/2" Circle Punch (119850)
along with the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402)
were both used to create this
beautifully large scallop circle.

To create the large scallop circle...
1.  Cut a strip of DSP (Designer Series Paper)
to measure 1x12.

2.  Snip from the straight side almost
to the scalloped area but not through the scallops.
(about 1/4" apart)

3.  Trim the long strip to measure 1/2 x 12.

4.  Add adhesive to the backside of the punched circle
and work the scalloped strip
around and onto the adhesive.

Remember the 
This "Tall Accordion Album" fits perfectly
into a File Folder Card!
Now THAT is a great gift!!!
Are you ready for Mother's Day?
