Mini Double Accordion Album

I had seen this made a long while ago, and decided to have a try. I may give it away as a present to someone, but I'd like to make another first!

Front, closed view. Double stitched Brown Grosgrain ribbon used as a closure. Chipboard covers, covered with DP and CS.

The inside. Both sides of the pull out sections are decorated with the DP!

A fully opened out view of the inside. Pages are 4"x4" and left un-embellished. DSP SU! Sweet Pea. CS Pink Sorbet & Dark Brown by PMD.

Another view :)


  • 4" x 4" Chipboard x2
  • 4" x 9" CS
  • 4" x 9" DP
  • 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" DP
  • 3 1/2" x 12" CS x2
  • 2" x 3 1/2" DP x6
  • 2" x 3 1/2" CS x6
  • 14" to 16" Ribbon
  1. Glue one 4" x 4" chipboard, adhere to one end of 4" x 9" DP. Repeat for other chipboard.
  2. Put a line of adhesive half way down, from one end to the other. Adhere ribbon to it, leaving an equal length either side for a bow or knot.
  3. Glue the partly covered chipboards and adhere the 4" x 9" CS.
  4. Score both 3 1/2" x 12" pieces of CS at 3 1/2", 7" and 10 1/2".
  5. Use a strong adhesive, and adhere the 1 1/2" segments onto the CS side of the cover, using the 4" x 4" chipboard underneath as a guide, leaving a gap on the top, bottom and outer egde of about 1/4". They need to open out, not in!
  6. Adhere the 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" DP to the inside, so as to cover up the 1 1/2" tabs you have just stuck on.
  7. Adhere the 2" x 3 1/2" DP and CS pieces throughout the album, as desired.
  8. Decorate, journal, add photographs and embellish to suit your needs.
