A Concertina Card Organiser
Those of you who have followed my blog for a while might remember that I designed this file a year or two ago and all the pieces are cut on the Cricut using the SCAL program. As I have bought a huge box of 5" cards with envelopes, that is the size I will be making, so this box is 5 1/2" wide and 6" or so tall. I reckon I should be able to fit about 30 or so cards with envelopes in it.
Now all I have to do is be self-disciplined enough to actually make the cards! LOL Oh, the ingredients... Top paper is from My Minds Eye Christmas Glittered stack, bottom is from a Costco tote full of double sided cardstock. The picture is from Tim Holtz's Seasonal card stack and the ticket is one of his stamps.
Each time I've made one of these I've used a different method of fastening them shut. This time I've used adhesive magnets. They work well, but are so strong that they were coming off the closure rather than unstick from each other, so I beefed up the adhesive on them with a strip from my ATG gun, and now they work fine! :)
