Mason Jar Accordian Album by Clear Scraps~

Hi, Connie here with a FUN project using the new Accordian Mason Jar Album by Clear Scraps.  It is like the small shaker but bigger!  It will stand and fold like an accordian or you can use rings and have it open like an album.   This one is created to fold like an accordian.  Twine was used to assemble the album together.

The front of the album is assembled together just like the smaller shakers.  There is a back piece (back of Mason Jar) and then two frames, acrylic and the top frame.  I painted the front frame with acrylic paint, glued the two middle frames together and then glued the frames to the back piece ( after it had been covered with pattern paper).  Fill, the center, with sequins, small seed beads or small shells.  Remove the plastic film from the acrylic layer and glue it over the center, filled with sequins.  Glue painted frame on next.  Embellish with the Sanddollar chipboard embellishment by Clear Scraps.

Decorate the inside pages with stickers and photos.  The holes are already punched in, the Mason Jar Accordian Album, for the accordian fold.  If you want it to open like an album just cover the holes when you cover the the page with pattern paper.

Here is the album standing up.  Both sides of the Mason Jar Album have photos, so six photos and a journal spot.
