So yesterday I showed you how to make an accordion album. Today is the finishing touch: an envelope in which to keep it or give it. I’ve done all the hard work (made a PDF), so it really couldn’t be easier.
What you’ll need:
some heavy weight card stock or poster board (leftovers from yesterday)
small hole punch (the same one you used yesterday)
two brads (like the one you used yesterday)
a bit of sturdy string (waxed jute might work better, now that I think about it)
This is a really fun and effective way to make a little photo album–all without using glue or adhesive in its construction. It’s a great way to showcase your photography. It also makes a great ‘brag book’ for images of your favorite children–furry or otherwise.
Here’s some of the things you’ll need to make one:
Medium weight poster board
Card stock, two different colors
1/4” wide elastic or ribbon
Small hole punch
Flat-bed cutter, optional but very handy
Additional hints just for Curbly readers:
Of course you can make your album any size, but I find smaller ones, like this one, are more sturdy.Continue Reading
In my wife’s (then, girl-I-was-gonna-marry-but-hadn’t-yet) first post-college apartment, we filled the entire area over the sofa with album covers. We used sticky-tack, but the jackets were heavy, they fell often, and it ruined the surface of many of them.
