Double Accordion

Yesterday I viewed a video on Kirsten Varga’s YouTube channel. It is a Double Accordion with signatures.

In the video, Kirsten used gold masking tape to affix the ends together to make the cover. I didn’t have that type of tape so I used gaffer’s tape. Since the tape is two inches wide, I measured an inch on either side of the center for the proper placement. It was a little tricky aligning it inside. Not really enough space to align it.

I used monoprints to cover thin black poster board for the covers. It is available at Dollar Tree, six 11″ x 14″ sheets in a package.

I didn’t notice until I viewed the photo. The tape isn’t aligned on the inside of the closure band. Matte medium was used to affix the paper to the poster board. The matte medium is rather old and may have been the reason it wrinkled the paper. I sandwiched the pieces between wax paper, and weighted them overnight.

I used the three hole pamphlet stitch to bind the book together.
