Training Reel: Funky Folded Accordion Album

i recently sat down with my Little Yellow Bicycle Saturdays collection to put together a fun and funky accordion album sandwiched together with inexpensive decorative casing blocks found at my local hardware store.

what makes this album unique is the constructions of the innard pieces that allow the album to be displayed and viewed from both sides. it creates a 6 panel display on the front and a 4 panel display on the back.

there are also a few diamond-shaped bump outs to help give it even more interest and stability. although the front and back album pieces (decorative casing blocks) are what really help this album stand firmly.

even though the back side of the album only shows 4 panels, you can still display the same amount of photos & journaling thanks to this little 'enjoying the sweet life' booklet.

the booklet opens up to reveal several more folds and flip-out pages perfect for storing additional photos, journaling and embellishments.
don't be scared off by the detailed look of this album, because i've created a training reel showing you exactly how to piece together the innards of the album and also how to create the flip and fold-out booklet.

once you have that down, you can download the extensive detailed instructions with detailed photographs of each and every panel in the album so you can recreate one of your very own.
