Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday.  Today we have a lovely little accordion card using the stunning new Spellbinders die Labels Twenty Seven.

Products Used: 

Bazzill Basics Paper: 

6-620E Wisteria 
10-1001 White
5-510E Parakeet 


S4-376 Labels Twenty Seven 
S5-129 Foliage Two 


S4-376 Labels Twenty Seven

JustRite Stamps: 

CR-82245 Botanical Butterflies 

Other Materials Used: 

Kindy Glitz 
Kaisercraft Rubons 


Step One: 

Using the largest die cut out 4 shapes in Bazzill and 2 in chipboard. Using double sided tape adhere the bazzill shape to the chipboard to give it stability. Now do this on the back side as well so your chipboard is now covered front and back in Bazzil.

Step Two: 

Cut 2 of the next smallest size in a complimentary colour and adhere to the first colour.   

Step Three: 

Using the directions on the back of the pack adhere the Le Crystelle Blingabilities to the front cover.

 Step Four: 

Using your first colour that you adhered on the cover cut a strip 21 cm in length and 7 cm long. Score this in 5 cm intervals which will give you 4 little rectangles.

Step Five: 

Adhere the back of the first rectangle to the back of the front cover. Do the same with the back of your last rectangle to the inside back cover 

Step Six: 

Mount whatever you decide to decorate your front cover with on 3d foam squares. I used the Just rite Botanical Butterflies stamp. 
Position your foam squares on the top and bottom half of whatever you decide to use so you can run your ribbon under this so the card can be tied shut. 
Cut your ribbon and adhere under your decoration.

Step 7: 

Now the fun part decorate in whichever way you please. This can also be used to make a mini accordion album Have fun!!
