I always love seeing the accordion flowers made with cardstock. I wanted to do something for my daughter’s room but I thought it would be more fun if it was fabric. This is the first one that I have made and I think many more variations are in my future. I am using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard but it is not a requirement.

I cut a piece of poster board 7 inches by 22 inches. I selected two lightweight fabrics. One for the front and one for the back. I cut them slightly larger than the posterboard. The front fabric will wrap around the posterboard and the back fabric will lay on top and cover the raw edges of the front fabric

I used the posterboard and ironed the edges around. I didn’t this time but next time, I would add iron-on hemming tape to hold the edges down on the back. I also ironed the front fabric so that there would be creases that would help to place it on the posterboard.

In this picture, the front fabric has already been applied and I will be wrapping the edges around to the back. I put the back fabric on top hiding the front fabric’s raw edges. Do this outside because of the fumes.

Here is how it looked after both were on. Also, I found the adhesive forgiving. If I needed to remove and put it back on to recenter, I could. I was able to do this without any trouble and without reapplying the adhesive.

This is where the scoring board comes in handy but is not a necessity.
