An Accordion Album is fun to make. All you need are some envelopes cardstock and some creating time! Imagine making one and filling it with tags with pictures of your children and grandchildren, your sweetie or your pets. What a special gift for Mother's Day or another special occasion.

One day when I had some time to craft, I gave in to the strongest inspiration to make a little accordion album to house all the lovely contact cards people from a forum I belong to have been giving me. I cast around in my mind for an idea until someone asked me how they could use up some envelopes in a creative way, and suddenly the two ideas sprang together in my mind, and some hours later here is the result. I actually used 12 envelopes to make this wallet-sized keeper.
TIP: You can use the number of envelopes that suit YOU. Choose to use six or eighteen or whatever suits your project :)
You Will Also Need:
Make some original paper flowers to decorate your own keeper once it is made. Consider if you could recycle some envelopes you have been sent in the mail. Some of the writing and stamps could show, but you may like that look.
If you do not have enough envelopes of the right size, you can make your own and customise them completely!
First, seal all the envelopes up. Then measure what you want to keep in the envelopes and cut off one end of each envelope to allow your items to fit comfortably inside and still be able to be pulled out. Make sure the envelopes are all the same length
