Pull-Out Photo Album

Pull-Out Photo Album

Transform a series of candid images into a curated collection with the help of a lidded wooden box (3½"W x 3½"L x 2"D.)

Step 1: Cut an 8 1/2"W × 14"L piece of heavy card stock to a width of 2 13/16". Using a ruler and a pencil, measure and mark the card stock, crosswise, every 2 13/16 inches.

Step 2: Fold the card stock at the first mark, creasing it with a bone folder to get a precise line. At the next mark, fold and crease the card stock in the opposite direction. Continue the accordion folds for the remaining marks, then erase the marks.

Step 3: Position the folded card stock on a flat surface so that it's as shown, left—with the topmost fold facing you. Cut five images into two-inch squares, then center one on each card-stock square and adhere with spray mount. Allow 10 minutes of drying time.

Step 4: Fit your folded card stock in the box. If you'd like, hot-glue the back side of the bottom square to the inside bottom of the box, and let dry another 10 minutes. For a finishing touch, use hot glue to adhere a loop of ribbon to the top back edge of the top square, and let dry five minutes. And just like that, you've got a "scrapbook" that's the very picture of fun.
