Club Scrap's Literature kit Blog Hop

Literature Blog Hop!!

Today I am working with Club Scrap's Literature kit.  I made a mini album that contains 3 different sets of accordion album pages in different lengths.  It is kind of a crazy lil book with pages going everywhere. This is a perfect kit for this little album which is am calling 'My Favorite Books".  I printed out the Book covers from a bunch of books I have recently read and loved!!  Each album page has a different 'roof line' creating sort of a 'cityscape' with all of the pages - I think it turned out really cool.  I think my end game with this is - I am going to leave this as Abandoned Art at my local library.  I mean I can't think of a better place for it.  

Supply List:
Cardstock and cut out from ClubScrap Literature kit

1.  Cut a 12x12 into 4x12 strips - creating 6 of them.
2.  Score each panel at 3.5in, 7 in, and 10 in - fold on score lines.  Create 3 sets of accordion pages - (1) single (2) 2 panels adhered together (3) 3 panels adhered together:
 3.  Create binding - cut cardstock 4x12 - score every 1 inch. Fold accordion:
 4.  Create a jillion little "house" panels to attach to the accordion album.  I printed out the book covers and adhered to the houses.

5. Once you have all of the 'houses' on the panels - adhere the 1st page of the panels to the accordion fold.  

6. When I did it - because I was having a big chunk of accordion pages in the middle of the book - I skipped a few folds on the binding to provide room for the accordion pages.  
 7.  On the front/first set of accordion pages - on the first four panels I trimmed them down - each by 1/2in as shown:

 8.  I then cut out sections of the panels as shown, I then added 'fence posts' to these panels:
 9.  Here is the back of the book, where I added ribbon (as a tie closure) I added a large panel on the back to cover up the ribbon adhered to the back of the book.
Here is a number of views of the final project.  It is a very large stretched out project, hope the pictures are able to show you the complexity of this fun project.

 This is the final little package that I will leave at the library for some lucky person to find!!
