Accordion Book

STEP 1: Decide on the dimensions of your accordion book and prepare the in
side paper
You can use a whole long sheet and then folded to make pages or cut it down into individual pages. If you decide to use a
long sheet of paper, use your bone folder and ruler, to s
core and measure so that every page is the same size. Fold along each score accordion style. Or you can piece together each page using glue or tape.

STEP 2:Prepare the front and back covers
Make sure you add approximately 1/8th more to the length and width of the covers. Cut the paper you want to your covers and finish your covers.

STEP 3: Glue the inside paper to the covers
Spread glue on the wrong side of the front cover. Line up
the inside paper with the cover and press. Don’t forget to smooth out air bubbles. Do the same with other side.
