This is my first attempt at a pre-scheduled post, if I did this right, it will post today Wednesday, February 23, 2011 and I will be Broadway Bound with my two sons and my oldest sons girlfriend to see "Rain" which is a tribute to the Beatles. We are huge Beatle fans so this is a treat. It was such a hit that it was extended for a few more weeks and I was lucky to get tickets. It will also be the first of two trips into the city this week to see a Broadway show. My next trip will be on Saturday to see "Billy Elliot". I'll be seeing this with a few of my colleagues from work. We try to see a Broadway show each and every time we have a break from school. Next break we'll be seeing "Sister Act". I am so glad that I am a New Yorker and Manhattan is only a train ride away.
Anyway, after all that is said and done. Here is my Accordian File Folder
A friend asked for a few Magnolia images, so I thought what better way to present them to her but in the accordian file folder. Like me, her favorite color is blue so I did it in blues tones to personalize it for her. This is the third one I've made, and you'd think I'd learn my lesson when it comes to using my word window punch, which is used to punch the hole for the strap that holds it together. I did it after the file folder was done and thought it was straight, but alas, the hole is crooked but I guess that's what makes it hand made.
Here it is open, it can hold about 4 images per pocket:
The directions can be found
It was fun to make, and I'm sure I will make a few more, only this time I'll punch the hole before I put it together..
