Amazing Ribbon fabulous tutorial

Welcome to Awesome DIY Kits Blog Hop! If you you start at the beginning DIY crats today so you don't miss a single project!

For my project today, I created a mini album using ONE single sheet of double sided 12x12 paper. I wish that I could take credit for this idea because it is soooo creative and simple to make, but I scrap-lifted from my dear friend Shellye McDaniel (with her permission to re-post this fabulous tutorial). I thought a little patriotic mini would be perfect to kick off this holiday weekend!

What you will need:
(1)one 12x12 sheet of double sided pattern paper
(2)a scor-board
(4)some ribbon(organza ribbon or printed grosgrain ribbon).

  1. I chose Authentique Paper for this project because of the texture and nice thick quality. You will need to scor your paper at 3", 6", 9"
  2. Then turn your paper sideways and scor at the 6" mark.
  3. With a paper trimmer or scissors, cut your paper down the middle all the way up to the 3" mark. Be sure to leave this last little bit attached.
  4. Add scor-tape so your paper looks exactly like this. Remember, the patterned side that you want on the front and back cover should be facing you, the back side will be the pattern on your inside pages.
  5. Peel off the tape backing and fold/adhere EXACTLY as follows... be careful, this part is a little tricky:  Adhere #2 to #3. Fold down and adhere #1 to #5. Adhere #6 to #7. 
  6. Add another piece of Scor-tape to the front and back cover. 
  7. Add ribbon.i choose Yama Ribbon for this project,because the ribbon from yama,have many colors and the price is so cheap!
