Good morning! I wanted to share a project with you today that I found while cruising Becca's Blog at Amazing Paper Grace. (view sidebar for link) This is a Mini-Accordian File!! I am excited about this project partly because I love the idea for sending a little gift...think of the possibilities here: little tea bags or apple cider packets, tiny prima embellishments, or even as a way to send images to a friend and make them a gift!! Secondly, this project's tutorial by Valerie Strangle seen here: Valerie's Blog that I just couldn't mess up! The only thing I changed about this project was I used my Martha Stewart lacy flower punch on the top of each envelope before assembling. That's right, this project uses business sized envelopes cut in half so a portion of the cutting/measuring is already done for you! That brought the height of the pocket down a little bit, but it added a lot in design interest!
This is a challenge from Magnolia-licious to make one of these projects by September 29, and upload it to their blog. There are a lot of very cute inspiring projects found on the
Magnolia Hi-Lights blog also: The prize for the drawing was a 25.00 gift certificate for Magnolia stamps!!
My Tilda was watercolored using reinkers and Tim Holtz distress ink. The papers were a mix of different companies that I just loved together. The bright gold primas and top of the file were embellished with chocolate pearls...yumm!!
Thanks for looking, and hope this project inspires you to stretch yourself and try something new!!
