Accordion Valentine

Could we miss this lovely Martha Stewart craft? It’s quite an easy one to make too, and the result is beautiful.
A note for “metric” people: 2 inches are approx. 5 cm, so you will need a piece of cardboard 15 cm by 50 cm – scored 7 times every 5 cm, with 10 cm for the backing – to get a card that fits in a A6 envelope.
If you don’t own a proper paper score pad (they’re very hard to find in Italy), just score your lines with a ruler and a sewing needle with a blunt tip. Choose an old needle, because this will ruin the tip anyway, but this trick may save you the effort and cost to buy a scoring pad!
