Hello Everyone!!

Half of the year has already gone by and so far the journey has been an awesome one! Papericious is growing leaps and bounds and is committed to bringing the best collection of pattern papers for all you crafty needs!!! We got a chance to use a few of the older collections for the April month, and yes, Papericious has finally started the challenges!!! It's fun entering into the challenges and at the onset of my crafty journey, I used to love participating in the challenges, for they allowed me to explore more and more and I had total fun making all sorts of things for the challenges. 
Read all about the papericious challenge by following the below link. Remember that you can enter into the contest for 4 more days.

I received the 'LITTLE STAR' paper pack and it has some really pretty collection for making baby albums and layouts!!
I decided to make a squash book with it and I have a tutorial for doing it too! So sit back and checkout another fun filled interactive card cum album!!

I kept it very simple and clear since it's supposed to hold baby pictures and baby pictures are a perfect in their own way!! There need not be any more embellishments to take away the glory!!
Here's how I made this one!

1. Take perfect squares, you would need 3 pieces, my square measures 9 inches * 9 inches. Make sure that they are perfect squares and also that the scoring is very accurate!

2. Fold each of the squares diagonally and then at 4.5 marks each side. Fold and keep aside. 
Now place them in such a way that one corner overlaps another one. I have my middle layer of paper placed on top of the other two. This way it's a little easier when folding!
Notice the marks where the mountain folds comes and where will the valley folds comes in.

3. This is the card's shape, when the mountain folds have been done. The valley fold will make the middle panel slide downwards and then this card would be in a shape of a perfect square!

Now comes the favorite part!! Embellishments!
This is how I embellished it!

This is the cover page. 

This panel is when the card opens up flat!

Few more angles!
