Fun Pull Out Accordion Style Card!

Valentines card, #positivelypapercraft


Hi everyone,
Happy Saturday!!! I hope you all have a great Crafty weekend! At some point over the Weekend i am off to HobbyCraft!! I love that shop but don't get to go very often as its a bit of a drive so really looking forward to going. I will probably end up getting craft supplies i don't need but hey lol never mind :-) The way i see it is, i don't drink or smoke and i don't go out or buy expensive clothes etc so this is my treat :-)

So i wanted to share this cool pull out accordion style card with you. I have seen them around and thought they looked pretty cool. As Valentines Day is getting closer, i thought i would make it in a Valentines theme. When you open it out, it says 'I love you', how sweet.  I love the Red & Black and it looks very striking. I hope you like it to.

It all folds in and is kept together with a belly band. I had a lovely pack of gold foil ephemera so i glued a Butterfly on the front of the Belly Band. I think the Gold & White goes so well with the Red & Black. Its really simple to make and you can use any shapes you like. Hearts, squares, circles etc. You could also spell out Birthday or anything you like, maybe someones name.

DIMENSIONS

BLACK CARD MEASURING 11 3/4" X 2 3/4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ EVERY 3/4"

BELLY BAND MEASURES 1" X 8 1/4"

I have had a few people asking me where i got the Heart dies from. I bought them from THE WORKS but i have know idea if they are still available to purchase.

I hope you will give this project a try and i will be back tomorrow with another project.

Bye for now

Love Ann xx
