It is time for an album glow up with Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Linda Roos. This Alice’s Tea Party Album has been inspired by Annette Green‘s Accordion Hinge Mini that has been a huge success on our YouTube channel. We love this album because it is simple and so versatile. So pull out your papers and play along with us!
Alice’s Tea Party – Accordion Hinge Album
By Linda Roos
“Hi! I’m back for another project. It’s time to #G45LeveledUp another project. This is a G45 Club project vol 3 2021, Accordion Hinge Album. At first I was thinking about making it bigger and using two hinges instead of one. But then I got the beautiful folders & sentiments and it hit me that the folder is nearly the same size as the pages in the album. So instead I changed the measurements a bit to work with the folders.
With some glossy accent and small gold pearls I made the flowers bloom.
I really like that the folder sticks out a little bit from the album.
I started by choosing 8 papers that I liked the most and then I coordinated them so that they looked nice together before I started to cut them out with the folder die. Be cautious when you are going to cut out the folders so you don’t cut it upside down or backwards. I made my first backwards but I was lucky to have one more of that paper.
Here comes a walkthrough and tutorial video.
To create this project here is the measurements and supply list:
2 pieces of chipboard, 6 x 4
2 pieces of paper to wrap around the chipboard, 7 x 5
2 pieces of paper to matt inside of the chipboard, 5 ⅞ x 3 ⅞
8 folders from the die set folders & sentiments
8 pieces of paper to put inside the folder as a lock, 4 x 4
3 pieces of paper to the hinge, 3 ½ x 12
1 piece of acetate to the chaker, 3 ¾ x 5 ¾
