My new technique? Making an accordion book!
I took two pages of watercolor paper, and cut them into strips of 4.5" x 12". Then I took two of the strips, folded each strip into 4" blocks and glued two of the blocks on top of each other. This left me with five "pages" to work with.
To keep the accordion closed I used a clip. If I was making it for someone else or for sale, I would use a ribbon for the closure. And maybe attach the ribbon to the outer pages, so it wouldn't get lost.
Since I'm going to keep this first "book", I decided to give it to DH. As I continued working on the other side, I looked for activities he enjoys and cut them out. To make the accordion more into a book, I put quotes with each page.

I like the concept of this little accordion book. I didn't really plan on what would be visible, when the pages were folded up; something I need to look at, the next time I do this.
