Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop, whether you have stared with my blog, or have hopped on over from Narelle, just keep following the links at the bottom of each post to hop around all the blogs until you get back to where you started. This hop is a chance for us to say farewell to some of the retiring items in the Annual Catalogue.
I did make some adjustments to the Accordion Card holder, as I didn't like the small flap and ribbon closure, so I made mine a little bit longer and just tucked it behind the vase of flowers on the front to close it.
I made some changes to the original gift card wallet to create a longer flap and to use 6"x6" DSP instead of a single piece cut from 12"x12". I cut two pieces of DSP at 3.5" x 6", scoring at 3.5" and 5" on one of them. This left a 1" extra piece at the back to which I attached the second piece of DSP, the darker part of the image above shows where they overlap, just make sure the new piece sits on the outside of the first piece and the join will be hidden inside the box. I then went ahead and scored at 8.5" and 9.25" as if it were a single strip of paper. If you wanted to use a piece of 12"x12" DSP you would cut it at 3.5" x 11" and use the same scoring positions above.
The cards are 3" x 6" folded in half, with 2-3/4" square pieces of DSP, you can get four of these little cards from a single sheet of 6"X6". I put four cards and our Basic White envelopes in the wallet, but it could easily fit double this many. A great project to show off our wonderful DSP collections, or to give as a gift.
