This is my second post today, I have been on a roll this weekend! I have been seeing some accordian cards lately and I wanted to try my hand at making one of my own. They are so cute, like little books! I also put this into several challenges, how fun!
I used a nestie die to make it a shaped card but that is certainly not a requirement. Once I worked out the dimensions and fold lines it was actually pretty easy to make and I expect I will be making more of these in the future. If you have never tried one, you should! Make up your own or follow the instructions at the end of this post. My instructions will make a card sized 4 X 5-1/4 and fits perfectly into an A2 envelope.
