Curbly Video How To: Make an Accordion Photo Album

This week marks Curbly's fourth birthday! We're pretty excited, and so we're bringing you some of our favorite original DIY projects and how-to posts from the last four years. This one's from Curbly's most established Featured Writer, DIYMaven.

This is a really fun and effective way to make a little photo album--all without using glue or adhesive in its construction. It’s a great way to showcase your photography. It also makes a great ‘brag book’ for images of your favorite children--furry or otherwise.

This is a great project and has the capability of being larger for showing off nature, landscape or portrait photography...small pictures do these type of photos no justice. One thing this video is missing is what type of permanent adhesive is best to use for those who do not craft very often.  Thank you for sharing this project!
