Here's my Accordion Wallet, I was looking for a better way to give gift cards with a little extra something. I gave one of these to my sons teacher, with a gift card to Barnes and Nobles and some bookmarks. I'm a big reader and I'm always losing my bookmarks. So a few extra are always nice.
Here's how I did it, it can always be re sized, with the same concept, for other items, tea bags Etc:
- Cut a 4 3/4 by 4 in Square- Make 4
Score Across 4 3/4 side down 1 1/4 & 3 1/2
- Score across 4 in side at 3 1/2
- Cut small rectangles at corners made by scores
Snail adhesive outside one flap & inside smaller rectangle piece
Sticky tape 3 of the pockets-right down the center on one side of the pocket
- Over piece 2 1/2 by 11in
- Score 3 1/2 & 3 3/4 and 7 1/2 & 7 3/4
Tape 3 1/2 side to top of accordion
Tape whole over piece to accordion, UNLESS embellishments or closures for flap are needed.
Then tape laterFlap can be cut to desired length
Closures can be anything Velcro, buttons hodgepodge etc.
Have fun hope to see what every one can come up with!!!
