- The Paper Source has comprehensive step-by-step instructions with photos for this project. All you really need to do is:
- Choose a set of flap-opening envelopes in the same size and style.
- Glue the flap of the first envelope to the front of the second envelope. Repeat.
- After your project dries, fold it up into an accordion file. If you'd rather not make your own version, Etsy seller Paperama sells beautifully crafted accordion files (including the one shown in the first photo).
