I like this page with the mini accordian insert...the next photos show the insert on the front & back (double sided paper)...if they had a girl, I could have used SU double sided paper!!
The little safety pins embellishments are jolees by you.

Wow! I didn't know that you asked for the directions until now! It is basically made from patterned paper, cut to assorted sizes for photo mats. The accordian part is just double sided paper that you fold back & forth to make it as long as you want. I tried to center the words, "baby" and "precious" on this one; then attach to the page with glue dots or Tombow Multi-adhesive liquid glue (I love that stuff!)
Finally, embellish with Jolees diaper pins!
The facing page with the painted transparency is super easy. I cut the transparency to the same size as the page. On the BACK side of the transparency I painted concentric borders using cheapie craft paints, letting each on dry for a few minutes before going to the next color. I intentionally left it 'brushstrokey' looking instead of making it smoooth so the 2nd color would show through the dry brush marks. Then plop a patterned square for the photo mat onto the upper right corner.
I wish I had another accordian book so I could make another! This one was a lot of fun!
