This is what it will look like on the inside. I sealed 2 #10 envelopes and cut them in half using scalloped scissors. In order for the compartments to open like accordian files only place adhesive in the center of the NOT on the sides. Place up to 4 different types of cocoas, teas, chocolates, soup packets, etc.

I guess I should have included the instructions for this. It really is easy to do after you have done one, especially if you have done a post it note cover.
First, Seal two #10 envelopes (the long kind) Fold each in half and cut the ends off of each one, not the end that is folded (I speak from experience) My envelopes measure 4 1/8 inches long folded in half. I also used scalloped edged scissors to trim the ends just for added effect.
Cut an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock (I used kraft) in half. Each half can now be used to make a treat holder. (If you want to make 2 holders make sure you seal, fold and cut 4 envelopes) Turning the paper sideways, score at
4 1/4, 4 3/4, 9, 9 1/2. Use doublesided adhesive down one side of one of the folded envelopes in the CENTER to join to the other. Do the same thing on the outsides of the envelope and adhere to the scored paper. You want to be able to open it accordian style so don't put glue all over to make it stay in place, one strip is more than enough. Cut a 2 in square and a 1 1/2 in square for the front flap. This is where you will place the velcro thingy (sorry about the wording) You could also use magnetic squares, too. Anything to keep it closed. Hope these instructions are clear. I'm more visual and like to look at something to figure it out. If you need further instructions or something clarified, feel free to let me know.
Thanks for all the compliments, too!
