I got the idea for this adorable little accordian file from Terri Gaines, it was posted here on Linda's blog. As soon as I saw this idea, I had to make one...really! I made this right away! I love it :) I used A2 envelopes, which fit just right inside after sealing them and cutting off approx 1/8" from the top. But first I used the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz to color the chipboard and decorated it with DSP, cardstock, ribbon, etc.... I took it to work in the morning filled with cards to sell, and I sold a bunch of cards! I also got an order for a custom little accordian file for a 3 year for her dad to pictures in, and a chipboard frame to hold an 8x10 of a baby boy! Not quite sure how I will make the picture frame... I am hoping I have some chipboard from packaging of stencils that I can use. Anyway....as you can see, I still love my Signo white gel pen, lol! And I used a couple of colors that are not available until July 1st (new goodies, yippee!)
- Paper: Island Oasis designer series paper, Tangerine Tango (returning In-color), Early Espresso (new color)
- Other: Flower Fusion felt flowers, Fire Circle rhinestone brads, Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, Scallop edge and Scallop Trim border punches, Crop-A-Dile, Signo white gel pen, Old Olive polytwill ribbon (retired), Sticky Strip
Here is a picture of it open. It's a great way to display my cards too!
ETA: I adhered the envelopes with 3 strips of Sticky strip in the center of one side of each envelope, then to each other. The first and last envelopes were also adhered with 3 strips of Sticky strip to the chipboard.
