Accordion mini book

Hello everyone, Henriëtte here and I have another fun project to share with you today.
It's this coin envelope accordion mini book.

I found a tutorial on you tube on how to make it here.

For the book I used thick chipboard. After I cut all the pieces I decorated the chipboards
with papers from the Eclectic charm collection. 
Before glueing on the papers on the front panels I added two circle die cuts 
with a brad. This is the closure.
All the edges of the booklet are painted gold with Maya paint.

Next I made the coin envelopes. You can buy these or made them yourself as I did.
I made a template and cut out 8 pieces from the Eclectic charm papers, 
assembled the envelopes and cut out half a circle at the top of each envelope.
Then I added a touch of gold on the edges using Maya gold paint.

Using strong adhesive tape I connected all envelopes together and into the booklet.
Only tape in the middle of the envelopes.
This give a fun accordion effect.

I also made eight tags to put in the pockets.
All tags are embellished with Eclectic charm ephemera pieces.

To finish I added a piece of natural twine to close the mini book.

Thanks for visiting the Blue Fern Studios blog.

Hugs, Henriëtte.
