Welcome Back

This tutorial is intended to be read in order, if you have not read the earlier parts, please click here to take you to the introduction. From there you will find links to all the parts of this tutorial.  http://billiescraftroom.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/tutorial-moo-card-holder-featuring-the-scor-it-board-part-one/

Here is the first installment of the instructions for how to make a Moo Card Holder.

To follow this tutorial you will need;

  • One strip of card 4cm x 64 cm
  • Two pieces of matt board or heavy cardstock 5cm x 9 cm
  • Two pieces of decorative paper 7cm x 11 cm
  • Photo corners, mine are clear and self adhesive
  • Piece of ribbon 48 cm long
  • Double sided tape
  • Glue I used PVA but if you could use a glue stick or wheat paste, depending on the type of cover paper you wish to use.

To follow the Moo card holder tutorial you will need 

All the pieces assembled and ready to go.

 

 Scor it Board and tools 

I will be using a Scor It board for scoring the lines in this project. If you do not have one yet, you can still follow along and score your lines using a scoring tool and ruler.

 

 Scoring the card using Scor It board 

1.  Score your long piece of card at 8cm in from one end. Move the paper across the board until the scored line is level with the 8cm mark and score again. Repeat this across the whole length of the card. You will have made 7 score lines across your card.

2.  Take the left hand end of the cardstock and fold it so the edge of the card lines sup with the centre fold in the card. Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier.

3.  Now take the same edge, and fold it back on itself, to meet the left hand end.  Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier.

4.  Take the right hand end of the card, fold this to meet the centre fold. Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier. Then take the same end and fold it back on itself till it lines up with the right hand end. Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier. Your card now looks like this.

5.  TURN THE ENTIRE PIECE OVER, but do not unfold anything as you do this. Your piece will now look like this.

6.  Fold the LEFT hand edge in towards the centre fold line. Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier.

7.  Fold the RIGHT hand edges in towards the centre fold line.  Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier.

8. TURN THE ENTIRE PIECE OVER, but do not unfold anything as you do this. Then fold the piece in half. Use a bone folder to reinforce the score line you made earlier.

 

What folded accordian pages look like 

9.  When you let go, if viewed from above the edges of the card will look like this. A zig zag pattern.

 

Adding photo corners 

10.  Place your photo corners on each page; these will hold the Moo cards in place.

 

If you struggle getting the photo corners in the right positions try this;

  • Put the photo corners on to a blank moo card
  • Place the moo card on the page where you would like it to be
  • Press the photocorners onto the page to secure them
  • Carefully remove the Moo card and the photocorners will be in the correct place.
  • Repeat this for the remaining pages.

 

Now go have a cup of tea and let all that sink in and when you are ready, come back and try Part Three;  http://billiescraftroom.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/tutorial-moo-card-holder-featuring-the-scor-it-board-part-three/

This tutorial is intended to be read in order, if you have not read the earlier parts, please click here to take you to the introduction. From there you will find links to all the parts of this tutorial.  http://billiescraftroom.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/tutorial-moo-card-holder-featuring-the-scor-it-board-part-one/

If you have read the earlier parts of the tutorial you will now have;

Folded the pages for your book

It is now time to create the covers for your book.

Matt board on cover paper 

12. Place your decorative cover paper pattern side down on the table. Cover your matt board piece with gue and place it in the centre of the piece of decorative paper. Press firmly and ensure the paper lies flat to the board. 

 

Folding in the long side

13. Run a line of glue along the edge of the board and spread this out to the edges of the paper. Bring the decorative paper up and over the matt board and smooth flat.

 

 Nipping in the corners 

 14. On the ends of the matt board run the bone folder up across the edge of the paper as shown, to form a little crease. This will give you a neat fold on the ends. Be GENTLE it is very easy to tear wet paper.

 

 The result of nipping in corners

15. This is what the crease will look like.

 

Two long sides folded in 

16. Repeat steps 13-15 for the other long edge. Your project will now look like this.

 

The boards completely covered 

17. Repeat steps 13 on both the short ends and your project will now look like this.

18. Repeat the entire process for the second piece of matt board and you will now have both your covers ready for assembly.

 

If you have used a wet glue such as PVA to adhere the cover paper;

  • Wrap each cover seperately in waxed paper
  • Place both the covers under a weight at least over night, but until they feel dry before you proceed to assemble your book. This will prevent your book from curling.

 

 You are now ready to assemble your accordian book. When you are ready please follow the link to read Part Four;  http://billiescraftroom.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/tutorial-moo-card-holder-featuring-the-scor-it-board-part-four/

This tutorial is intended to be read in order, if you have not read the earlier parts, please click here to take you to the introduction. From there you will find links to all the parts of this tutorial.   http://billiescraftroom.wordpress.com/2008/06/10/tutorial-moo-card-holder-featuring-the-scor-it-board-part-one/

If you have read the earlier parts of the tutorial you will now have;

  • Folded pages.
  • Two cover boards.

Here we go, we are now going to assemble your accordian book that will be your Moo card holder.  

Double sided tape to hold the ribbon closure 

19. Select the piece that you would like to be the BACK cover of your book. Decide where you would like your ribbon closure to be positioned, and then place a piece of double sided tape across thecover board to hold the ribbon.

 

Attaching the ribbon closure 

20. Remove the backing from the double sided tape, centre your ribbon on the tape and press the ribbon down on to the tape to ensure a good fix.

 

 We will now attatch the book’s pages to the cover boards.

 

 Attaching the cover boards 

21. Apply glue to the back of the BACK page of your folded accordian pages. Press this firmly on to the back cover. If you have used a wet glue place a piece of waxed paper between the last two pages before you move on.

22. Place your front cover board on the table, apply glue to the page that is now at the top of the book, bring this top page over and place this neatly onto the inside of the front cover. Press this firmly on to the front cover. If you have used a wet glue place a piece of waxed paper between the first two pages before you move on.

If you have used wet glue (PVA or similar) remember to have waxed paper in between the newly glued pages and the rest of the book, front and back. Wrap your entire book in waxed paper and leave to dry under a flat weigh. You could use a pile of books if you do not have a press. Leave the book under the weight until the glue is dry.

 

The finished Accordian 

Tie your ribbon closure and your Moo Card Holder is complete.

This is how mine finished up.

 

Congratulations you have now completed an Accordian book. By altering the dimensions you can create albums to suit whatever sized pictures you wish to store. How about making a similar one for ATCs.
