Accordian Card Organiser Box

Hi all,

Well this week is turning into another beautiful day, weather wise. After making a Christmas card yesterday for the Stamp With Us Challenge, I was in the mood for some more festive themed goodies, so I decided to follow a tutorial and create my own accordian card organiser box to hold my Christmas cards in.

As a first attempt, I'm really pleased with how this turned out :) I'm due to go to a Macmillian Coffee Morning at the end of the week, so I plan to make another one of these with about five matching cards and envelopes as my gift.

Hope you like it, I've used the retired stamp set "Flaky Friends" which I think are adorable :)
