In this Step by Step Tutorial I not only show you how to decorate a MDF Box but you will learn how to make and decorate a Mini Scrapbook Album to go inside your MDF Box.
This makes a lovely gift or just to keep for yourself.
How to Make the Mini One & Done Album
Cut 2 sheets of 12 x 12 cream cardstock to measure 12 x 5 1/2 .
With the 12 inch side along the top score each page as follows;
Page 1/Cover; Score at 4″ and 5″ (this is the spine) 9 1/4″ & 10 1/4″ (this is your wrap around cover)
Page 2: Score at 3″ (Flap) 7″ & 8″ (this is your spine)
Page 3; score at 4″ and 4 3/4″ (this is your spine) & 83/4″ (Flap)
Page 4; Score at 31/2″ (Flap) 71/2″ & 8″ (this is the spine)
Fold all the score line and stack in order on top of one another.
Each page will have a natural spine and a flap. We will attach double sided tape to the back of each spine (But NOT THE FRONT COVER/PAGE1).so theystack on top of one another and this is called a stacking the deck spine system.
If your box measures a different size you can adjust the height of your book to fit but keep the 12 inch measurement the same and score and fold in the same way.
The MDF Box came from MDFMan He is based in the UK and attends lots of the craft shows.
