FairyFemme,

Thanks for sharing the link. Accordion books are similar to star books, but there is a key difference. The pages are folded exactly the same way. The difference is how the pages are adhered to one another. In the accordion book, you alternate the "direction" on the pages and together they stretch out, whereas in a star book, you glue all the pages in the same direction and they are hinged, if you know what I mean.

One neat thing about the accordion book, as demonstrated in the how-to article, is that since you don't need to create a star shape, you can get away with making them big, big enough to add decent sized pictures. Cute.

So are the cuts made for the accordion book the same one's you made for the five-pointed star?

Also - unrelated - is your "I made it myself" in response to "WHY WAS THERE BACON IN THE SOAP??"  Grin

Sorry -- I should have been more specific. "Book 3" from the linked how-to has the same fold as these star books -- no cuts. Smiley

And, though I know of Zim, my little tag line is my "brand." I write it on the back of the cards I make. It's actually a take-off of the Dr. Seuss "I can read it all by myself" logo. I thought it was cute. Thanks for asking.
