Accordion Card

These tutorials will help you create an accordion card like the one featured on my previous blog post.

Accordion Card
 Materials and equipment:
  • Cardstock
  • Cricut
  • Design Studio (DS)
  • Cricut cartridge:
  • Bone folder


1. Cut the card using the DS file provided (download).
    If you don’t have DS, Circut or the cartridge don’t worry, I have a template (follow the link, download and cut)
2. Score card with the bone folder where shown:
3. Fold the card (look at picture for reference). Use the bone folder for a crisp fold.
4. Decorate as desired, Have fun and be creative!

Miniature paper flowers


  •  Cardstock with white core
  • Mini brads
  • Misting bottle
  • Water


1. Cut four (4) flower shapes, I used Cricut cartridge Plantin Schoolbook, but you could use any flower die cut you have.
2. If your flower cut out doesn’t have a perforation in the center make one, being careful not to make it to big.

3. Place the flower shapes on a paper towel and spray lightly. Work one (1) at a time and don’t wet too much or they will break when you try to work with them.

4. Take the flower in your hands and squeeze it as tight as you can (see picture). This will give the shape to the petals and will bring out some of the white of the cardstock core.

5. Repeat the last step for all the flowers.

6. Allow to dry completely.
7. Open the flowers. Begin assembling the flower using the brad as the center and the smallest flower, follow all the way to the biggest.

8. Play with the petals until you reach the desired shape.

9. There you have it. Beautiful mini flowers for your projects.

New projects...

Time flies, or so they say. Each day I plan to do a million things and by the end of the day I realize that most of them are still pending.

This past week I was able to make some cards and posted them on Simply Scrapping Crafts (SSC) Site as part of the challenges.

March 2, 2011 Card Challenge: Stamp a background, but make it (at least partly) your cards focal point

March 4, 2011 CAS Challenge: make a 3-D effect as the focus of your card.

I also worked on a very special project: an accordion card.  Each detail made me fall in love with it.  The dig stamp is beautiful, and the flowers were handmade.
The base of the card was made with the Design Studio and my Cricut.
The flowers were made using the Cricut to cut out the shape.  Here is a link for the tutorial.

Some embossing was done on the cover of the card, as a background accent.
Each page has a special detail, they are interactive and fun.

Hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.

Thanks for visiting.
