If you want to find a pretty way to store things, or want a nice big envelope to fit all your little things in there, as a gift or for yourself, then this might just be the answer.
You will need:
- A glue stick
- 3 envelopes of any colour
- Wool or ribbon
- 3 sticky labels
- Coloured pens of any sort
- A hole puncher
Get your first envelope, and apply some glue.
Gently place your next envelope on the first, making sure that it is straight before applying pressure.
Repeat step one and two for the next envelope.
Get some sticky labels and your pens, and match the pen colour to the colour of each envelope. Once each envelope has a pen colour, draw a thin/thick line around the border of your sticky label. (It is important to keep the middle clear so that you have space to write what you are going to put in each envelope.)
Place the sticky labels onto the correct envelope, and fold it over inwards.
Create as many holes as you want on the top envelope using the hole puncher. (It would be easier to do one or two instead of three, especially if your envelope is paper and not card.)
You can use wool or ribbon to tie around you accordion.
Tie a knot to hold the wool/ribbon in place, then flip the accordion around and tie a knot.
And now you have your finished accordion.
You can do any size, any type of envelope, and any colour. You can even try more than three envelopes. I recommend that you only use odd numbers like 3,5,7, or 9 envelopes instead of making it equal. This will add uniqueness to your accordion.
I hope you enjoyed making your own squared accordion. If you have tried this, please send me a picture! I would love to see and hear how you got on by leaving a comment!
Thank you and have a good Thursday, From Nadine
