An Accordion file project

Hi Guys,

Poorly old me has spent most of the weekend in bed or in my new craft room. Hubby and I spent hours before Christmas cleaning and sprucing up my spare room into a guest/office/craft room. With all the hard work that went into it, I thought I better use it before he changes his mind and decides to turn it into a man's room again lol. I won't go into the details but I bet you can guess what I mean. Anyways one of my New Years resolutions was to try other methods of paper crafting-not just cards. So today I have made an accordion file. I have never made anything like this before so was really pleased with the way it turned out.

This is how it looks on the outside

And this is the inside, lots of storage space.

I have a habit of inking up images and colouring them in while I watch TV etc, so decided to use this to store images in. But I am sure you can find plenty of things to to with it. The size of this file is 4x6', for a tutorial on how to make this really simple project please visit the oh so talented Maria Bell. Also if you are interested, I have been playing around with the dimensions so if you would like to know how to make a larger file, visit me near to the end of the month where I will share this with you as partof one of my DT projects.
