Accordion Card

Over at The Pieces Of Paper Forum we have a monthly crop. Each crop starts out with a one hour card class. This was this months class.

Accordion Card:

Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of cereal boxes or chipboard to measure 4x4 inches.

Step 2: Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper to measure 4.5x4.5 inches.

Step 3: Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to measure 3.75 x 3.75 inches.

Step 4: Cut 1 piece of neutral cardstock to measure 3.5 x 7 inches.

Step 5: Cut 1 piece of neutral cardstock to measure 3.5 x 10.5 inches.

Step 6: Adhere chipboard to the center/back of patterned paper.

Step 7: Cut off the corners leaving 1/16th of an inch.

Step 8: Fold over the edges of the patterned paper and adhere it to the chipboard.

Step 9: Adhere the cardstock squares to cover the chipboard.

Step 10: Score the 3.5 x 7 inch piece of cardstock @ 3.5 inches.

Step 11: Score the 3.5 x 10.5 inch piece of cardstock @ 3.5 inches and 7 inches.

Step 12: Fold using the mountain/valley folding method.

Step 13: Adhere both pieces of cardstock together.

Step 14: Decorate this piece of cardstock. Don't forget to do the back.

Step 15: Adhere your decorated cardstock to the covers that we already made.

Step 16: Decorate the inside of your card.

Step 17: Make item(s) to decorate the front of your card with but do not attach them!

Step 18: Cut a piece of ribbon to measure 26" long.

Step 19: Open your card and place it upside down on the table. Place the ribbon on the card and only adhere it to the front of the card!

Step 20: Apply the item(s) you made for the front over where you adhered the ribbon.

Close the card and tie the ribbon.
