So I have a nephew, who is silly as he is sweet... and he is a loving guy. I wanted to make him an accordion Mustache birthday card. and it came out great. He loved it. I added photos of him and attached mustaches over each photo so he could get a good laugh. This is one of my favs.
I started with an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of blue card stock and I cut it in half to create two A2 cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) then I attached two ends together to create the accordion card. My mats are 4x5 1/4.
I then created an envelope with the same striped paper cut 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at an angle at 3" turn 90 degrees and 3 5/8" then rotate 90 degree and scored at 3 " and rotate 90 degrees and score at 3 5/8". I used the Martha Stewart score board. I love it and it's easy to use. I placed a mustache in the return address part of the envelope and made a seal with another mustache.
It was a big hit. I was told he got a big kick out of it.
