CTMH Picture My Life Surf’s Up – Meander Book

Meander Book

The meander (or maze) book gets its name from the way the paper is cut and folded to make the pages. This size book is great for scrapbooking a single event! I used the CTMH Picture My Life Surf’s Up Cards to make this cute little album. Please let me know what you think and if the directions were helpful to complete the little fun mini album.DSC02892 DSC02893 DSC02894 DSC02895 DSC02896 DSC02897 DSC02898 DSC02899 DSC02900

Instructions:
Take the 12 x 12 piece of scrapbook cardstock and mark at 3, 6 and 9 inches. Score and fold accordion style. Turn 90 degrees and do the same in the other direction. Your page should now be divided into 16 portions.

To create the pages you need to take a cutting knife and straight edge and cut from left to right across the first and third folds only as far as the last portion of the cardstock. Then cut the middle fold starting from right to left this time, but only as far as the last portion again.

Now to fold all the pages together. Starting at the top left corner fold each page accordion style until you get to the end, where you fold all of the folded pages underneath the first one on the second row. Keep folding accordion style and once again fold all of the pages underneath the first page on the following row. Repeat until you have all of the pages folded together.

Next take the smaller, 6-1/2 x 3″ cardstock and mark at 3″ and 3-1/2″ and score. Fold along the scored lines to make a cover for the book.

Adhere the front and back pages into the cover.

Now you are ready to decorate your mini scrapbook.
