Lynne's Hidden Album Page

 The decorative papers used are from the collection "Life is Abundant" by Graphic 45.

To make this hidden page layout I used the following pieces of card:

2 @ 8” x 6½” - with 6½” across the top of your score board score @ ½”.
1 @ 8” x 6” (base)
1 @ 8” x 57/8” ( hidden page)
1 @ 9” x 1” – score bellyband ½” each end.
1 @ 1½” x 2¾”   score slider @ 11/8” and  2¼”.

Parts needed

To make the concertina, I stuck 1 of the scored card to the base page then the other scored card
to this page.

Pic 2:- shows the concertina made up.

I scored the bellyband and put patterned paper onto it. I then put the
bellyband through the slider.

Pic 3:- shows the bellyband & slider.

I then stuck the bellyband in place on the base page an inch in from
the side edge.

Pic 4:- shows the bellyband in place with sticky paws protape added.

I added glue on top of the tape and placed the hidden page on top,

Ensuring it didn’t touch the hinge of the next page.

I then decorated the pages with patterned paper and used the 6x4 & 3x4 photo slot dies.

To close I used
6mm ribbon at 12” in length, which I stuck  to the back of the
base page and used ½” & 3/8” purrfect finish circles to cover the
ends of the ribbon.
**** If the slider doesn’t move easily use a tumble dry sheet along the sides of the
bellyband ******
