Winter Wonderland Scallop Square Matchbook Album Tutorial

Something you haven't seen for a while a The Craft Spa - a mini album... a Scallop Square Matchbook Album... and the tutorial for it too....
Or is it a mini album?
It also makes a great gift card holder... or even for cash...
I also dressed a great one for my husband's birthday...covered in rugby balls and pictures of posts & Twickenham... along with the tickets for a international match at Twickenham... even he thought the dress-up was great! Result!!

So here is the recipe for this Scallop Square Matchbook Album...

Cardstock 
Thick Whisper White 4" x 8 1/4" ( ie A4/21cm wide for us Europeans)
Scallop Square - Gold Foil 4 3/4" Square
First Page - Gold Foil 4" x  2 1/8"
Second Page - Basic Black 4" x 3 1/8"

Papers  
Front Top - 3 3/4" x 3"
Front Bottom - 3 3/4" x 3/4"
First Page - 3 3/4" x 1 5/8"
Second Page - 3 3/4" x 2 5/8"
Third Page - 3 3/4" x 3 3/8"
Back of Scallop Square - 4" Square

And the instructions... This is a really simple one... so one that can be made in  flash... just when you need one...
1. Score LANDSCAPE Thick Whisper White panel at 1" & 5"
2. Score PORTRAIT Gold Foil panel at 1/4" ( or 1 7/8" if you find that easier!)
3. Score PORTRAIT Basic Black  panel at 1/4" ( or 2 7/8" if you find that easier!)
4. Bone Fold panels
5. Adhere 2 pages (using the 1/4" section) just above the bottom score line - gold one just sticks on top of black one!
6. Stick your papers on...
7. Punch a 2" Whisper White Circle...adhere to top panel on book front - but DO NOT GLUE ALL OVER THE BACK... mine is glued to about half way down from the top - as the bottom unglued bit acts as the closure... that bottom flap just tucking behind it nicely to close the book of..
Though I will admit - I should not have stuck the Glad Tidings greeting where I did... it adds a layer where it would have been better without....
And the greetings/tags are from the hostess set, Antique Tags...
