Here's what you'll need:
1/4 inch MDF or chipboard/thin card board
paint or paper to cover the school house, eaves, and bell
paper for the doors and name plate
Black ink pad
fine tip sharpie
3 pieces of 12x12 inch scrapbook paper
*if you paper cover the school house you'll need mod Podge*
Just a little after thought...you could use the page folding technique for either album (the fold out here, or the accordion fold from the Crayon Album) the covers are about the same size, either would fit! So go with the one you like best.
Unfold all three papers and lay them side by side so that the diagonal fold is running straight up and down.
Over lap the bottom right square of page one with the bottom left square of page two.
It doesn't matter which one is on top, pick the paper you want showing and then glue them together.
It should look like this:
Repeat those steps with the second and third pieces of paper, over-lapping and then gluing.
You will end up with one continuous piece of paper that looks like this:
Fold the Pages:
Start with the page furthest to your left.
Using the diagonal fold as your guide, push the fold (B) toward square A.
Repeat with the second fold (C) pushing it in toward square A.
All of page one should sit on the glued square of pages 1 & 2. See 3rd picture above.
Turn the entire piece over so that the square you just folded is face down and furthest to your left.
Repeat the steps above using the diagonal fold as your guide to push in the folds.
You should end with the folded pieces filling the glued square of pages 2 & 3.
You should end with a 6x6 inch square.
Right side up = backside of page 1 face up, back of page 3 face down .
Open end of folded pages closest to you.

To unfold it, grab it by the bottom right corner and pull back.
To glue the pages into the covers, refold the pages.
Center the folded paper square onto the back cover, then glue into place.
Add glue to the top piece of folded paper and then place school house cover on top-
line up the covers to be sure everything is centered!
Decorate the Pages:
The second was a fun year-end picture.
Square #3 was their diploma.
And square #4 a class picture.
