This is an accordion book that I put together and illustrated: The Gang's All Here! Here's the front:



And opened up:



Each page has a face on it, and each face flips up to show the skull underneath:

























Ta da! I would highly recommend making these little accordion books...they're really easy and all you need is book board, canvassy book cloth, glue, and paper (I used paper for the long strip, and cardstock for the individual pages and faces.) All the color is paint, sharpie, and colored pencil. Hope you like it!

Thanks everyone  Cheesy! To answer your questions, accordion means that the book opens out into one long page, and then folds back in a zig-zag pattern, like the musical instrument accordion! And second, hahaha I don't really know what I'll use it for; right now it's just kind of hanging out in my dorm! It was just fun to make...I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually  Tongue
