Tangle Pattern Album Lesson # 261

Tangle Pattern Album Holds 32 small 2x2 tiles, great idea for keeping tangle ideas with you when you travel. 
You can buy a kit to make one at my store for $5. 

Supplies: 4-Sheets of card stock #65 paper 8 1//2 X 11 (Standard for the USA Size Paper) Glue Stick ( I use Elmer’s Washable School Glue) Paper Cutter or Scissors Round 2” paper punch (optional) 

Cutting Instructions: Cut each piece of card stock into two pieces 1- 4 1/2” X 11” 2- 4”x 11” Cut this piece in half making 2 strips 2”x 11” Cut the 2” strips into 2”X 2” Squares you will have 10 squares. If you are going to punch some round 2” circles do this now with one of the 2” strips. You will need to be very accurate when cutting your strips or you will not have room to punch your circles. 

Folding instructions Part one: Fold each of the 4 1/2” Strips, measure along the 11” side 3 1/4” and fold. Do this on both ends of the paper and on all 4 strips. (See Video) 

Gluing instructions: Glue the 4 strips together in the center of the strip, it should measure 4 1/2 X 4 1/2”. Where you place the glue. You will glue the strips of paper in opposite directions forming a X. one going vertical and one horizontal. Don’t forget to add you string to tie the album together. This is add on the first paper. between the vertical and horizontal. See Video 

Folding Instructions Part Two: Now fold the album, folding alternating the vertical and horizontal paper. Forming a square 4 1/2” X 4 1/2” You will have space to place 32 Bijou or 2 x 2” tiles in this Album, I liked the small 2” round tiles also to give it some variation and looks great.
