Stampin Chic mini accordian purse

Found this brilliant tutorial for an accordian purse at www.stampininspirations.blogspot.com and thought it would make a lovely xmas present filled with stamped images for a cardmaking friend. It took about half an hour to make.I used Clare Curd papers in black and white so that it could be entered for challenges at Stampin Chic and Cupcake Craft.
PM white card.....Clare Curd The Big One papers.....PM jewels to add a bit of brightness.....the flowers were also cut from Clare Curd papers and then added with foam pads,the photos don't really show that they're raised.
Fraid the photos of it open aren't very good....but you can get the idea.....I may make a couple more for pressies......with colours to suit different recipients.


Today we are having roof blinds put up in our conservatory to make it more usable in the heat....so now it is raining so hard our road has turned into a river.....the local school has been struck by lightening......my plants are drowning....and not a ray of sun in sight!!!! Is that what they call Murphy's Law!!!!

Oh Jacky, what a really beautiful project, I really must look that one up and my kids who are keen crafters would love them as xmas gifts filled with stamped images. Thanks Jacky you've just got me a stocking filler sorted for my eldest two. Now back to your creation, I just love it and the papers and colour combo are really great.
Happy crafting
