Chipboard Accordian for Grandfather

Here is an easy thing to make….an accordian book made from chipboard. We made one and gave it our kid’s grandparents when we went to visit them. Here are the instructions:

4 pieces of 4″x4″ chipboard (sometimes, I use a Free version – the back of a legal pad)
8 pieces of 4″x4″ paper
6 small pieces of ribbon
glue (I like to use magic scraps glue – it dries very quickly and doesn’t wrinkle the paper)
2 or 3 pictures
1 or 2 quotes or notes printed in word
pigment ink cat eye for distressing the edges of the paper

to make:
glue the ribbons at the same level to the chipboard (one at the top and one at the bottom)
glue the papers front and back over the ribbon and chipboard
glue the pictures and quotes
add buttons, ribbons with brads, or other things you would like

it is “A Piece of Cake!”
