Prima My Sweet Slimline Accordion Folio Tutorial Part 2 for Throwback Thursday
Hello, Friends! I shared the first part of this Prima My Sweet Slimline Accordion Folio Tutorial with you in last week’s Throwback Thursday. Today I’m back to finish things up. Are you ready to get your craft on?
If you missed the first installment of this tutorial, you can get caught up by watching it here. This tutorial shows you how to build the folio base, line the pages, and decorate most of the inside pages.
This week we have some really fun pop up pages to create! The first style of pop up page is this W-Fold mechanism. This one is so easy to make that even if you have never done a pop up element before, you’ll be successful on your first try.
The second style of pop up is this fun twist and pop mechanism. This is a little more work that the W-Fold. A few years back I figured out a way to greatly simplify the process, and that video is still one of my most viewed tutorials on my YouTube channel. I think you’re really going to enjoy adding it to a mini album base.
Finally, we will build the collage style cover of the folio.
I had a very good time digging through my stash of charms, trims and embellishments. Hopefully you have some goodies stashed away that you can use to dress up your folio cover.
If you don’t have this paper collection in your stash, you can still have fun with this tutorial. Just substitute one of your favorite paper collections as you follow along with the step by step instructions.
