"Stamped Image Folder"

 (Stamped Image Folder)  Supplies: 1- card-stock 6x12 (here pumpkin pie) 1- card-stock 6x7 (here pumpkin pie) 1- sheet of designer paper (here bali breeze) 2- sheets of card stock measuring 4x8.75 (here tempting turquoise) 8- sheets of card-stock measuring 6x 3 5/8 (here Sahara Sand) 1- piece card-stock 6" x 3 3/4" reinforcement for lid strong adhesive like Zip Dry or Scor-Tape Stamps and embellishments Magnets   Print tutorial

Step 1: Score 6" x 12" at 4" and 8". 
Step 2: Score 6" x 7" piece at 1" and 5". 
Step 3. Adhere the 1" section to the inside edge of the 12" length to create one long piece of paper 6" x 18". 
Step 4: The two pieces that measure 4" x 8 3/4" will be scored at every half inch but you MUST alternate the scores as you are making mountains and valley folds. Score at 1/2", 1 1/2 ", 2 1/2", 3 1/2" etc across the card-stock. Flip the card-stock from top to bottom, keeping the left edge in the same orientation, score at 1", 2", 3". 4" etc  across the card-stock. Look for the first indentation, fold so the indentation is on the OUTSIDE of the fold, bump on the inside. Accordion pleat both pieces.     
Step 5: Glue the back part of each accordion piece to the third section  of the long length of card-stock/patterned paper (back of a valley). Use STRONG adhesive.                                                                                                                                                                          Step 6: You will progressively move forward gluing in your inserts. They are glued to the front of the mountain as is indicated by the arrow. Glue one insert at a time so that you end up in the same place of the accordion fold on both sides. The small flap should be facing away from you. lue cards in the position I have shown, even with the bottom of the accordion fold No they are   G not the full height of the accordion.

Step 7: Glue last flap of accordion fold to the front of the box.
For my closure I decided to use magnets...they aren't as clingy as the velcro so the box doesn’t get damaged when I try to open it. You can cut up magnetic business cards or use the magnets by Basic Grey. Further embellish as you wish.
