To get started, cut the following from a very heavy paper:
(2) 8" x 4.5"
(2) 8" x 6"
For each panel of paper, align the long side against the top fence of the Scor-Pal. Score at every inch. Do this for all 4 panels of paper and accordian pleat them.
Ink the edges of all the folds.Interlock the folds, with the two longer panels running vertically and the shorter panels horizontally. Glue each section together, in the corner intersections, to form a rectangle.
Cut a sheet of brown cardstock from the Autumn Melody Cardstock pad - 6 3/4" x 10 3/4 ". With the long side along the top of the Scor-Pal, score at 5" and 5 3/4". Add patterned paper to the back of the frame using Scor-tape.
(2) 4 1/2 x 1 1/4
(2) 6 x 1 1/4
Arrange these panels on top of the accordian book frame, to form a frame with mitered corners. (See how to use your Scor-pal to easily align this in the photo below.)
Decorate the inside and outside panels as you desire.
