Look it's a card. It's memory book. No, it's a Accordion Circle Card. Lisa M. here with an Accordion Circle Card that stretches out to form a little memory album. I created the card and my daughter helped pick the pictures to go in the card.

Sometimes I pick my colors for my projects backwards. I knew I wanted to use the Basis Navy, so I found this patterned paper from BoBunny. Then I decided to use Basis Light Lime as my accent color. The Basis Cardstock is on sale this month at CutCardStock

First, I cut 6 of the Accordion Circle Cards from Elizabeth Craft Designs out of Basis 110# White cardstock. I also cut 16 Circle Frame Edges using Basis Navy cardstock.  I used the Accordion Circle Card die to cut 3 circle from Basis Light Lime cardstock.

 

Next, I covered 2 of the Accordion Circle Cards with the patterned paper.  On one of them, I also cut off the tab.  This will be the back cover.



Then, I glued the cards together with the tabs all facing to the right. (2 are shown) While the cards were still flat, I glued the Frame Edges around the circles, and added the accent circles and pictures.



Using my Sizzix eClips2, I cut the letters from Basis Light Lime and shadow layers from Silver Glitter and Cougar Super Smooth White for the front of the card.  I also cut letters for the last circle in the card from Basis Light Lime. These letters were less than 1/2" tall.


The last step was to fold the pages like an accordion and connect the small tabs on the circles. 


Now she can add some little notes on the back of the circles for her dad.
