Triangular Around Book
By Jaine Drake
The Triangular Around Book is very similar to the Square Around Book. Jaine has once again graciously provided the instructions to us for a very special mini scrapbook album!
2 sheets of double sided 12 x 12 scrapbook cardstock
An extra sheet of 12 x 12 for the inserts
Thick cardstock or book board for the covers
Patterned scrapbook paper to decorate and cover the book board
Cut the double sided cardstock into 4 pieces of 8 x 6".
Fold each piece in half along the shorter width and then score from corner to corner. Carefully fold along these score lines.
When all four pieces have been scored and folded, make sure that the straight fold is on a mountain fold and the diagonal folds are valley folds.
Fold up as shown in the following pictures, bringing the straight folds in to meet each other, while the diagonal folds form a triangle shape.
Glue the pages on top of each other so you end up with a pile of folded triangular pages.
Using the pages as a template, draw around them onto the thick cover cardstock and cut out two cover triangles. Use the patterened scrapbook paper to cover them. Glue the covers onto either end of the pile of folded pages and sandwich a piece of ribbon in between to tie the book closed.
Again, using the book as a template, draw around it onto some decorative papers to make triangular shaped inserts for your pictures. In my book I managed to get all but one of the inserts from the left over pieces of scrapbook cardstock and some tabs to go along the edges.
The book can be tied around like a star book or left as it is.
I have seen some made with many more pages so I guess it's down to experimentation.
