A Very “Pretty” Accordion File Folder

Storage doesn’t have to be ugly or boring. Check out this adorable accordion file folder designed by the very talented Hilary Kanwischer. Wouldn’t this be perfect  to organize your photos, recipes, receipts or even your coupons. The possibilities are endless.

"Pretty" Accordion File Folder

I love the pink & black color scheme of the  new “Classique: Pretty” by Authentique.


For the top of the file folder, Hilary  added a length of black polka-dot ribbon that was stitched to a piece of “Phoomph”, which adds weight and thickness by way of bonding sheets.

How sweet are the tabbed index cards. Each index card measures 4 1/2 X 5 3/4.

Felt flower

The sweet handmade felt flower really added some texture to the outside of the file folder. For complete tutorial, including measurements and additional photos you can use go to Authentiqe Site.

Thanks for the visit & I hope you have a beautiful creative day.
