Accordion File Purse


I have a gift item to share with you today.
The holidays are here and we all need a little something for special people in our lives.  

I've been holding this one back for awhile now, it was a birthday gift for a friend of mine.  I stuffed it with cards I've made and didn't want her to possibly see it early and ruin the surprise.

I've had another one of these accordion file purses on my desk forever.  It's been waiting to be "re-made", I originally wanted it to be large enough to fit A2 sized cards so I could fill it and give it as a gift.  The first one I made using Maria Bell's tutorial isn't big enough to hold A2 cards but it is perfect to hold my printed digital images that need to be colored. 

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family tomorrow and thanks for visiting my blog!
