Happy Monday. I hope your weekend was great. Mine was very busy, but I managed to get a lot done around the house. I even found a little bit of time to stamp. Do you want to see what I made?
Isn't this new Bella Rose designer series paper darling? I love it. This is an accordion file folder box. Here's a look at the side view.
And here's a look at the box open.
You can pull on the front panel and it expands even more. I just couldn't figure out how to hold the lid of the box, pull on the front panel and snap a picture at the same time. I suppose I could have had one of my children take the picture. That would have been fun.
Update: The Scrapbook Lounge has taken down the pattern. Click here to download the pattern. If you're having trouble downloading it, RIGHT click on the link and click "save file as." Save it to your computer and then you can open it.
You can find the pattern for this box at The Scrapbook Lounge. You'll need to sign up for an account (it's free) once you're on the site. It's the July 4, 2008 episode called "Expanding Memories." They have a video tutorial as well as an eight page pdf that you can download with the pattern and directions. Just look in the box below the video screen that says "episode options." Click on "download design guide" and that's where the written directions are.
Edited to Add: I've had several people ask me what I used as the "insides" of the box. I used chipboard and cut it to the dimensions listed in the directions. If you don't have any chipboard, a cut up cereal box will do the trick too.
Each of the accordion pieces is 5" x 7", so this is a pretty good sized box. You can use it to organize your cards, receipts, recipes and so much more.
Also, I've been nominated a few more times for this award.
Thank you Debbie, Laura, and Kristin. I truly appreciate it. ~Dannie
