Let your imagination run wild when you create your accordion brag book. Below are some of our hints and ideas.

  • Use mulberry paper, scrapbook paper, wallpaper samples, old maps, etc., to cover the cardboard pieces that make up the front and back of your book
  • Cover your rectangular frames with scrapbook or mulberry papers. It may be difficult to use scrapbook papers to cover oval frames; try mulberry instead
  • Alternate your frames when you adhere them to your accordion piece -- square, oval, square, oval, etc.
  • Experiment with the frames in different directions: turn the frame so the picture is either on the top or the bottom. Or, turn them sideways (you may need to trim the frame to fit the accordion piece).
  • Use an Xacto knife to cut the rectangular opening to make it a little larger if your picture is too big. Cutting the oval frame is possible, but more difficult.
  • Before adhering the frame to the accordion piece, punch a fun or interesting shape in your frame and let the background peek through.
  • Embellish your book with stickers (Jolees!), fibers, ribbons, ticket stubs, etc.
  • Use eyelets or corner punches on your frames to attach ribbons and fun fibers before adhering to the accordion piece.
  • Use a corner punch on your frame and glue a contrasting color paper underneath for added color and interest.
  • Put a journal on the back of the accordion piece to tell your story.
