Supplies Needed For Basic Flag Book:
2 pieces of 4-1/4 x 7" chipboard for covers
2 pieces of decorative scrapbook paper or cardstock measuring 5-1/4 x 8-1/2"
2 pieces of coordinating scrapbook paper or cardstock measuring 4 x 6-3/4"
One piece of heavy cardstock measuring 7-1/2 x 6" for spine
2 colors of solid cardstock cut into 5 pieces each, measuring 4 x 3-1/2"
Directions: Cover one side of your 2 pieces of chipboard with your
decorative scrapbook paper or cardstock. Cut the corners at an angle
and then fold paper over and adhere as shown here. I use a strong double sided tape for this.
Take your 7-1/2 x 6" piece of cardstock for the spine and score it every 1/2" along the short end. Accordion fold it along the scored lines.
Adhere one edge of the front cover to one end of the spine as shown.
Adhere your ribbon to the back cover as shown.
Adhere the back cover to the other end of the accordion spine as shown.
Adhere your coordinating scrapbook paper or cardstock on the insides of the front and back covers. I used the same paper as I did for my front covers. But a nice solid in a complimentary color would also work very nicely.
Adhere your small pieces of cardstock to the inside of the spine folds. I used one color on top and another on the bottom for added interest. The trick here is that you want to put them on one side of the accordion folds for the upper pages and on the other side of the accordion folds for the lower pages.
Decorate inside pages as desired. Carefully close it up and tie the ribbon closure.
