Accordion Photo Card

Here is the accordion photo card I gave to my sister, that I had made during the Saturday on-line crop.

Here's how I made it:
Take a 12x12 piece of card stock and cut 4" off (you'll have a 8x12 piece of cardstock). Fold down the middle, so you end up a 4x12 piece, then score every 3 inches. Fold it into 4 individual pockets and I used wonder tape to adhere at every fold and the ends (this will make individual pockets).

Punch a scalloped edge on the front part of the card and adhered the ribbon (only on the 3" on the front of the card). Once you fold the card, see if there is any overlapping on the front section. If there is, try and punch with an overlap so that it looks right when it's folded. Otherwise, you might have a little "extra" showing. Does that make sense?

I embellished with a matchbook card (instructions given on previous blog from 8/16/08) and an unfolding/exploding card, so she could place even more pictures! On the pull-out tabs, I used my shape cutter and again for each of the little red circles. You could also use a punch, if you have ones that would fit.

On the unfolding/exploding card, select the size that you want your bottom piece to be and then cut out 4 more pieces, with about 1/4" added. Score the 4 pieces 1/4" in and then glue to the bottom side of the card, as you fold over each other. Place a brads and a thin piece of ribbon and tie (as you would seal an inter-office envelope). Adhere to card. Tie ribbon and give it to someone you love to enjoy, your save it for yourself!

Cricut Cartridges used: Palm tree is from Doodlecharms cartridge, the Boys Rule is from the Locker Talk cartridge, and the letters are from the George and
All Mixed Up cartridges.

Hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by the cottage!
