An Accordion card

Hola! Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm surviving my weekdays at work and just can't wait for the weekend. Don't we all? Lol! Time flies so fast that I only realize it yesterday that it is my turn to post!
I just call it an accordion card. It's actually made from a single 12x12 inches patterned paper of which I have cut it into half. I have scored on 3 interval of equal spaces on both and overlap both ends of each to create the length.
It's a fun way to give as a gift to your friends or loved ones and its pretty easy to display since it's able to stand on its own too. If you wish to keep it away, you can also fold and secure it with the ribbon lace, which is tucked around the back of the card. Quite simple, yes?
Materials used:
Patterned paper: Webster's Pages (DT kit)
Adage tickets: Tim Holtz Ideology
Game spinners: Tim Holts Ideology
Tissue tape: Tim Holtz Ideology & American Craft ( dear lizzy )
Lace: available at Papier
Altered paper clip: from my DT kit
Decorative stickers: from DT kit
Naked pockets: 7 Gypsies
Flowers: Kaisercraft
Brad: Making Memories ( DT kit )
Eyelets: We R Memory Keepers
Stamp: Hero Arts
Ink: Ranger
Glad that I'm able to utilize much from my DT kit.
All of the brands above is available at Papier.
Come to the store and start shopping for your crafting needs!
Till then! Ciao!
