Accordion Card Tutorial

Accordion Card
Designer: Angela Robledo, TPE design team member

Hi. My name is Angela.
This tutorial is for accordion cards made using tabbed index cards. I love making these and I love decorating them. I gave one of these away for a birthday, and they loved it. I hope you enjoy this tutorial.

Materials Needed:
2 tabbed index cards
Cardstock or DP to cover index cards.
Any embellishments, stamps, etc.

1. Score index cards at 2 1/2", make sure the score is going opposite directions as you want them to fold going opposite of each other.

2. Adhere both index cards together using adhesive.

3. Cut card stock or designer paper at 7 5/8 X 3 1/2, 2 5/8 from right and also from left. Center panel should fit perfectly in the center. The scores should also be going in opposite directions so the folds are the same as the index cards. The ends may have some extra after attaching paper to cards trim off any excess.

4. Decorate and Enjoy!
