Accordion Folder

I don’t know why but it seems that, I tend to D.I.Y a bank bag for myself every year without failing. Like this one I did in 2008. My current one looks like this now…

P1140307 P1140308

Another hamtam-hamtam DIY project, wrapped coloured paper around envelope and also another plastic cover then bundle with my cute Minnie Mouse band. Totally looks like salted veggies now.

So I came up with a new one today.

P1140328

It’s really easy to make. I finished this in about an hour.

P1140310

All you need is just some envelopes (again) and a piece of paper (as the cover), double tapes and scissors. No sewing or stitching needed. I used like, 10 envelopes.

P1140311

First of all, cut off the sealing part of the envelope. Actually, I have no idea what is it called but you get the point.

P1140312

Get some double tape and attach them all together,

P1140313

like this.

P1140315

Get your card stock/paper out. Measure the size of the base and also the cover.
(You saw that 4 creases on the card stock? That’s what I’m talking about)

P1140317

Cut away the extras again.

P1140318

Stick your bundle of envelope to the card stock.

P1140319

You can now slot in your bank books and whatnots.

P1140321

Labeling! I wish I have nicer handwritings.

P1140322

Almost done~

P1140323

P1140324

P1140325

Now, you can either use ribbons, buttons and threads, velcro or anything to stick them together.

P1140327

I picked velcro but it was a major fail. Apparently, the velcro sticks better than double tape.

P1140329

Decorate it.

*ta da*

Think this is like the most beautiful bank bag / accordion folder I’ve ever made. And it’s going to be so easy to find my bank books and slips without tugging it all out and later struggle to put it back.

Hehhehee. Not really bring to jalan, only bring out beginning of the month to do transactions here and there mah.

Hmm... online banking, maybe should do and apply, rather than waiting for that freaking slow CDM.
