Scallop Square #15 – Attic Boutique Side Concertina Mini Book

2012_07 236_resize

So here is the fourth ( and last) of my series of Mini Books made using the Attic Boutique papers and the Scallop Square die . Another CASE of a fantastic mini book I found on the web – this time by Kim Assaly. ( and there is a video done by Kim there too!!) Now this was my favourite of the 4 initially….. really simple way to present about 7 photos…..

A rectangle is pretty easy to cut. Just another double-cut trick!

1. Cut your piece of card to one scallop wider than you need – and allow 1/2” for each scallop. So for this 6 scallop example one  - I cut the card to 4 3/4” by 3 1/2”.

2. Place the card on the die so that 3 scalloped edges of the die are covered ( eg top, bottom & left hand side). Die cut! You will end up with the full 9 scallops along the left hand side and about 7 scallops along the top and bottom.

3. Then move the cut shape across the die so that 6 full cut scallops are lined up within the top and bottom die cutting edges.  The uncut/ straight edge of the card will be off to the right of the right hand cutting edge. Die cut!

Actually I know there are a few pictorial/video examples of this on the web…. so I am just off for a hunt!! OK back now…..  Pictorial here. Video here .

And the book itself….

The pages are 2 pieces of 12” x 4 3/4” same colour card. Scored at 4 3/4” and 9 1/2”. Valley fold next to narrow section, other mountain.

The cover is one piece of 12” x 5” card. Scored at 2 1/2”; 3”; 8” and 8 1/2”. All mountain folds.

Place the opened-out cover down in front of you with the flaps to top and bottom

Glue the narrow sections of the pages to the centre section of the cover.

The belly band is a 12” x 1 1/2” piece of card. Just wrapped and creased loosely around the book when it is completed. Don’t wrap it too tight – you won’t be able to get it off easily!!

Eh voila!! Just the decoration to do.
