I created a super easy DIY album simply by adhering the 3x4 Kaisercraft PL cards together with Pink Fresh Studio gold washi tape! Easy peasy! Then cut out some embellishments and piece them together. And tada! Love the final product!:D

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it! Till my next update, take care and God Bless! And have an early blessed Christmas!:D

Guess what!? I completed all the cards under an hour! Let me show you the trick! What I did was I used MME Sleigh Bells Ring Chipboard Frames as the cover and somehow the Pink Paislee paper fits perfectly as wording for my cards! If you have the kit with you, try it! 

Thanks so much for dropping by! Till my next update, take care and God Bless!:D

Supplies:Jolly good Collection: Patterned Papers: Caroling (jg14os03), Christmas Eve ( jg14os01), Deck The Halls (jg14os06), Happy New Year ( jg14os12), Holiday (jg14os08), Sweater Weather (jg14os04), Sugar Cookies (jg14os02), Making Spirits Bright (jg14os07), Illustration Stickers (jg14eb01), Die Cut Tags (jg14eb04)

Here's the step-by-step instructions!
1. Gather your supplies! I cut the patterned papers into 12x6" and combined 3 patterned papers into one set and folded them into halves. This formed one signature as illustrated in the first photo. Create as many signatures as you deem fit. Then choose a patterned paper you like as the front cover and cut them into 6x6". Then I gathered the embellishments and set them aside. For this ribbon binding tutorial, use a needle with a wide hole so it's easier to thread the ribbon through.

2. I used my ruler to measure and punched hole with my crop-a-dile! As for the front cover, I wanted it to be firm so I used a cardboard  and glued the front and back patterned paper to it. I scored the front cover slightly so that it's easy to open and it won't be too stiff.

3. Then I thread about 24" of ribbon through my needle.

4. I started out first by threading through the second signature as shown in the photo so as to hide my knot. Remember to leave about 4" so that it's easier to tie a knot at the end.

5. Thread it through in the same direction as shown and criss-cross it at the end and back up again to join with the start of the ribbon. At the end, thread it back to the second hole to find your thread and secure it by tying a dead knot. 

6. You are almost done! Now decorate your front cover!:D You can work with almost any size but I like 6x6" so I won't waste too many papers!

Here's the step by step instructions:
 photo Process_zpsac111c68.jpg

1. Choose the pattern paper you like as the front cover and measure your cardboard to the dimension as shown.
2. Fold the pattern paper towards the cardboard as shown.
3. Glue them together. (It's fine that it looks quite ugly at the sides because it will eventually be covered by your accordion album.
4. Fold it inwards so that it looks like a book.
5. Then with a 12x4" cardstock, leave 3x4" on each end and fold it into an accordion style 0.5" thick (The image shown is just for illustration and not the actual accordion used in the album).
6. Choose a variety of 3x4" cards and glue on one side of the accordian.
7&8. Then glue around the back as shown so that we can create a pocket and slip in the Polaroid photos later.

Just a tip to share on how to document your layouts if you think your handwriting ain't nice enough! My handwriting is too messy so I usually type on Microsoft and have them printed instead! To make sure that it fits exactly in the space you want it to fill, simple measure the space with your ruler then use Microsoft to limit the space as shown:
Then have it printed and stick your cardstock over it and run it through the printer again and ta-da, it should fit nicely!:D Hope this helps!
