This is my final post as aan 8-5 office worker as I embark on a new journey as a practicing doctor of medicine. I am very glad to announce it here that my application for residency training was approved.  I was rooting for a slot in Nuclear Medicine last March, and finally, this August, I will be in the medical circulation once again. I feel quite nervous and excited at the same time, and still hoping I get some time to blog. It will be intersting for sure!

Last week, I played with some DCWV stacks and thought of creating something different this time. I was surprised to find a lot of pen pal stuff on instagram. Oh boy! I thought this hobby died, but no, it's now called #snailmailrevolution.  

PEN PAL ACCORDION BOOK

This accordion book was fun to make!
Steps:
1. From the 12x12 paper, cut it into 2 equal parts.
2. To make the accordion folds, get one part and using a scoring tool, score to 4 and 8.
3. DECORATE!
- make pockets
- make a cover design
- make a belly band
- cut out the free journal cards in the stack
4. Make a matching envelope


A lot of people are into "planners". One thing that they like is a cute paper clip. So, I created embellishments from tiny scraps of paper (can't throw away those foiled papers!!!).  
Tools:
1. Puncher - star shape
2. Scrissors - to make a banner
3. Stapler

Since DCWV stacks are not 2-sided, I am planning to use the back side for my letter. The photo didn't do any justice for the gold foiled envelope, but I'm telling you, IT'S GLAMOROUS!!
