Accordian folder!!

Here is another folder I made. This one I wanted to make it clear. For this project I used (1) clear sheet 8 1/2 x 11 inch and (1) piece of 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock. If you want to know how I made the clear sheet. I made it with the Your Story book binder and laminator. Here is the link.
This is the side of folder. I like the clear folder I can see what ever is inside. This can be used for coupons, cards, pictures etc. Click any photo to enlarge.

Here is a tutorial on how I made the clear folder. I used a clear sheet 8 1/2 x 11 inch. I score at 4 1/2 inches and then 6 1/2 inches.

I then folded all the score lines. When it is folded it should look like this.
For the sides I trimmed (2) pieces of cardstock 4 inches x 8 1/2 inches. Score every 1/2 inches.
Then accordion fold ( press one way, then the opposite way). It should look like this here.
Then I adhere sides to folder with hot glue gun and then I took my Crop-A dile II and punched one hole through both sides and tied ribbon through the hole to make more sturdy. Punch (2) holes in front of folder and (2) holes in back and set eyelets to tie folder together at the top with ribbon. Folder size is 4 1/2 inches height X 2 inches Depth X 8 1/2 inches width.

Have a great day all!

  16. Only because I love this blog - I have to say your music is distracting. Most blog experts say that to have people stay longer on your blog to not have music. They reason that we all have different tastes in music and are in different moods when we blog. We may even have our own music going or have a baby sleeping nearby while blogging and get a surprise. I absolutely love this folder and I appreciate your tutorial. You did a great job!
