Scallop Square #14 - Attic Boutique Central Concertina Mini Book

Now this little mini book was the favourite of the ladies doing my "Attic Boutique in association with the Scallop Square Die!!!" class. Very simple but very effective.

This book is CASED from one I found on Pinterest by Fiorella. There are more page photos here of Fiorella's book. And here is a link to Alice Carman who inspired Fiorella's book..... 

Thank you Alice and Fiorella. I love this one!I just added the Scallop Square die cut to the back of the completed book to finish it off.

But the main tool for this little book was the Metric Plate for my SU! Simply Scored scoring board. Makes the scoring job SO easy!!

The central concertina pages are made using two 12" x 10cm pieces of same colour cardstock.  Both are scored at 10, 20 and 30cm. & then concertina folded ( mountain, valley, mountain). Then just adhere the 2 together using the narrow flap. ( the front one has the mountain fold to the front at the right hand side and the narrow flap to the back at the right hand side)

The cover is 27cm x 10 1/2cm. This is scored at 8, 9, 19 1/2 and 20 1/2cm . All mountain folded. The concertina pages are glued to the inside centre section of the cover using the narrow flap. And the Scallop Square is then glued to the outside centre section.

And then it is finished bar the decoration!!! Enjoy.....
