A glance at the supplies used in this DIY.
Trim the cardboard paper down to be 12″ x 5″. This makes 2 covers w/ 1 piece of 12×12 cardboard. Fold it at the 5″ mark & again at the 10″ mark. The 2″ flap will fold over to make it a matchbook.
Cut the extra cardboard paper into a circle to use for the rings outside of the album. Trim down the inside pages to be 10″ x 5″.
Line up the inside pages with the cardboard paper. Use a needle or something sharp to make 2 holes in the center of inside pages and the cardboard paper. Take the twine to tie it all together.
Making this project with kids? Skip the previous step & staple it down! Use the brad to adhere the circles in the front flap & towards the center of the cover. Attach twine to open & close the flap.
