About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Accordion Fold Mini Album

So, I've been on this card kick lately right? Well, I came across a card that I thought would make a cool mini-album. This is a picture of the card:
When I saw this card, I immediately saw all the different places I could put pockets, tags, embellishments, etc.

My husband works at a place where, when stock comes it, thin sheets of chip board separate the pieces. And, lucky me, he brings them home to me.  Gotta love free chipboard. I figured this would make a good start.  The chipboard piece is 16" x 12.5". I cut it down to 16"x11.5", scalloped one edge and accordion folded it.  Then I added some pattern paper and some ribbon.  Here is what I have so far.

Cute so far?  I think so. I have an idea for a pocket page but I am not sure if it will work, so, I will have to show you that later.
 
I'm sure this idea is not new, though I can honestly say I haven't seen it, but I'm gonna make the best of it. Please feel free to give any suggestions or leave comments, critiques, etc.
 
Have a good night.
