3-D Thursday!

Here's a 3-D project to shake things up a bit - an accordion card keeper. This will make a lovely start of the year gift for Gwenny's new teacher. Gwenny even helped me make the cards to go in it!

I used the wonderful tutorial from to create this keeper from just one sheet of Pocketful of Posies Designer Series Paper. I just love the bold designs on this paper! This card keeper was surprisingly easy to make with the help of my new Simply Scored tool - available on September 1st in the Holiday Mini catalog! If you've been looking for a great scoring tool, this is it!

The inside gets some drop-in dividers with tabs labeled "thank you", "happy birthday", and "just because".

All that's left is to make up some matching cards for each category and drop them in!

This makes a great teacher's gift or a gift for anyone. Everyone needs to send a card to someone they love.

Here's what I used to make this layout:
