Are you snowed in??
It looks like most of the UK has had snowfall this weekend.
And, it seems, that the white stuff has gone metric.
The news tells me we have had 6cm here - that's 2.36 inches in old money!!! :-)
I finally got round to making something other than a card - this cute little accordion file purse.
Maria Bell has shared her brilliant, step by step tutorial here - give it a try - it's really not as difficult as it looks.
I used white card for the main body of the purse and lilac for the 'accordion' pieces and the matting on the little cards.
The purse itself measure approx 6"(length) x 4"(height) x 3"(depth) and closes with a velcro dot.
I made 4 cards (2 of each design) to go inside the file - 3" x 3" fits very comfortably.
I kept them quite plain, so that they could be used as notes, thankyous, etc.
It took me ages to decide on the sentiment for the front of the file. I wanted something that would suit any occasion and finally settled on this 'just for you' die cut.
To finish off I added a little 'hand made' stamp on the back.
Sorry about the rubbish photos. As you can see, I tried every angle and every surface to try and get a decent shot!
