HYBRID | ACCORDEON FOLDER PART 1


As a hybrid scrapbooking addict, I have a lot of printed photos and I always look for them when I sit down in front of my scrapbooking table. To help store the pic that need to be scrapped I decided to create a folder to store and categorize my photos.


I made the pocket from a kraft paper.
I cut several pieces: a main part to create the back and the front of the pocket, a flap to close the pocket and 3 dividers to separate inside of the pocket to create differents spaces for different occasions/categories.


First I glued the flap onto the main cardstock part to join them and create the complete pocket


Then I cut two rectangles from a yellow paper ouf of the Mark The Date Paper Pack. I folded them, several times, to create a paper accordion.


I glued them on the edges of my pocket. These accordions will be used as runners to slide the dividers inside the pocket


I covered the pocket's back with a blue paper from If Only Papers.


For the front parts I used a paper from Forget Me Not Papers.

Then I closed the pocket so I was able to glue the yellow accordions on the kraft paper, left and right.


I inserted the dividers :


The next step is create a way to close the folder. For this I punched two holes in the flap.


Next I did was sew a button on the folder. To help me sew it in the right place, I marked the holes of the button with a black pen.



Then I made a loop with a piece of string.


And voilá my folder is done!
