Here's an accordion book made with Altoid tin lids as the covers. I'm really on a bug/flower kick...
Two left over tin lids, some cold press satin finish watercolor paper, hodge podge (gotta love this stuff!) Some metal findings, the last of my old butterfly transfers and mostly G45 papers.





The other side of the book.

Super Tacky glue because that's what I could reach while holding something else down!  Cheesy

These are brilliant! Do they actually snap closed with the lids?

Glad you like it. I used the tin lid to draw a template and then cut it slightly smaller than the lid so the pages would fit. Then I laid the template on a long sheet of watercolor paper and drew around it, moving the template along and repeated drawing around it so that what I had in the end was something that looked like those paper doll chains. Then I cut around the whole shape leaving the inside line uncut so they would stay attached. I scored the uncut lines so folding would be easier and started playing! Hope that helps.
