Seeing as how we've been sending themed packages for the last, oh... 13 years (!)... it seemed like a fun take on the usual envelope filled with random goodies. These are very easy to make, and can be re-purposed as a coupon keeper, a place to store scraps, or anything else that is little and flat. Seeing as how I can't find Martha's instructions on this little number, I'll do my best to try to explain how to make it...
1. Fold the flaps of the envelopes backwards, with the glue on the edge of the flap facing away from the front of the envelope. This is how you will adhere these envelopes together--you can either dampen the glue and stick them on that way, or use the glue stick. After folding all of the flaps backward*, line the envelopes up with one another, and glue the flap to the front of the envelope behind it. Make sure the envelopes are square with each other.
*The envelope in the very back will be the front flap that closes over the whole thing, so don't dampen or glue this flap to anything!
3. The only hole in this accordian is at the bottom of all of the envelopes--center the hole on the bottom of the first envelope (see first photo) and punch. Make a mark from that hole onto each envelope, and punch through, making sure all of the holes line up with each other.
4. Thread ribbon through the hole, up and over the top of the whole book, folding over the flap of the last envelope over all of the envelopes. Add a sentiment if you'd like, and tie in a bow. Voila!
