Today was an accordion book kind of day.
I’ve been working on these babies for the past week or so. I really love making them, mostly because I get to play with brighter and wackier papers than I usually use in my production work. I also use papers that were trimmed from larger projects.
I spent time folding the long strips of paper that go on the inside of the books. I start by folding them in half, then I trim a little off the ends.
The accordion books have pages/panels that are 4″ x 4″ in size. To help me with the folding, I use my trusty scoring board (thank you Martha). I know I’ve said this before, but I love this thing.
I folded enough paper for 27 books. The next step is to glue them into the covers.
I don’t have accordion books in my shop or on Etsy yet. It’s partially due to the fact that I often only buy one sheet of a particular paper, which limits the number of books I can create in that design. I also haven’t devoted time to taking photos of them – poor, neglected little books.
I hope to have them for sale online soon – if you’re interested in purchasing one before they’re available, just let me know!
