Hi Friends! OMG! I actually created a project and a tutorial no less! LOL! I had bought an accordion file from Ross and after studying how it was created, I decided to recreate it. It was actually quite simple to come up with the dimensions. You could probably do it yourself without instructions but I created a tutorial for you any way. Scroll down to check out the tutorial.
I created 4 of these puppies so far but I'm going to create more of them to send out to friends. Who knows. . it may be you. LOL!
I'll create a bunch more but I'll create different sizes and styles. . .I'll create a tutorial if I create a different style so you can create them too. I'll probably post the tutorial maybe Monday. I can't work on it right now because I have to create a mini album that my daughter's friend requested I make for her father on Father's Day. I also have to create a few stuff for my husband. Ugghhh. . .I guess I'll be busy the next few days.
Anyway. . .here is the purse in the closed position. I tell ya' . . .it's really easy to create this accordion file purse. After you've got the instructions down path. . .you can create this project in 30 to 45 minutes. Faster if you're a speedy crafter.
Here is the accordion file purse opened up. The pockets are really roomy. You can store a whole bunch of photos or stamped images. To close the purse, you can add your own type of closure but I used Velcro. It's much easier than to create a fancy closure. LOL! I'm all about simple and fast. No fancy closure on my purse. Maybe I should work harder and add stitches or bells and whistles to this purse but ugggh, I'm so darn lazy.
I can't handle spending too much time on a project. Honestly. . .I don't know what happened to me. There was a time when I wanted to spend hours crafting but for some reason, I can no longer spend more than an hour crafting without having to do something else. I sometimes wonder if I'm losing my mojo.
Anyway. . .I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Here is my inspiration for the project. I recreated this accordion file case that I bought. Anyway. . .if you have the time, try out the tutorial!
