Squeeze cards!

I got this lovely cd for Christmas called Squeeze Cards Occasions. Was a bit dubious about it but the finished cards are really nice and that little bit different and you can get them into an ordinary envelope:) They consist of concertina folds and you line up each of the layers after cutting and stick in place. The old lot squeezes flat:)
This is one of the baby versions. I made it to fit a square card with 4 layers.
