Gift Set Challenge #3 - Accordion File Purse

This week at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Blog we are doing an Accordion File Purse. You can find the tutorial for it over on the CSAYL Blog which was done by the fabulous MARIA. While there you can check out the other design team members creations...Love seeing so many DIFFERENT creations using the exact same instructions!!


This was my first time making the Accordion File Purse and it was VERY easy to do. The instructions are WONDERFUL! I made a matching card using Taylored Expressions Sketch #111. Here's a quick glance at the inside of the purse:

Sorry for the horrible pictures - I really do need a new camera. PLUS my battery was VERY low so I was lucky to even get these photos! I think this purse would be great for greeting cards or recipe cards. I'm sure there are a lot of things you could use it for - YOU guys are creative...what do you think we could use this for?

I'm hoping to post some pics of the family soon - lots been going on. I've got soccer, softball, playing in the water and T-Rex adventure pictures...and that's just from the last two weeks!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Great card and box you made.
It's funny you use the paper that I use for our next gift challenge.
It looks super with the kraft card stock.
