  1. Well done! One more Paperblanks item I am going to need!
    Do you consider doing the same with the embellished manuscript or some glamorous collection like Ventaglio or Nocturnelle? It would look absolutely gorgeous!

  2. Would you please consider putting these gorgeous designs on File Folders (letter and legal) so that the inside of the Accordian Box is as beautiful as the outside! I am longing for a grown-up office!

      • Hi everyone,

        Thanks for your the feedback and suggestions – we’ve forwarded it on to our development team for future consideration. If you have any other suggestions, please do let us know!

        All the best,
        The Paperblanks® Team

  3. Just a random comment dropping in to share admiration for these boxes that once upon a time I coudn’t buy, and now can only reminisce about (or randomly search sites for them, cause you never know!). Simply beautiful.

    • Thank you Olympia! We love to reminisce over these beautiful boxes sometimes, too, and we are sorry that you were unable to find them while they were available.

      We are always working on new product ideas, and will make a note of your interest in our accordion boxes should we decide to re-release them in the future!

  4. I’m another random comment, not exaggerating when I say I have remembered these and randomly search them up every couple of years hoping they have become available somewhere in Australia. They are absolutely stunning and I can’t be the only person hoping they become available again sometime in the near future!

      • Thanks Robyn, I was once again thinking of these beautiful boxes and checked to see if they were available yet haha I caught the New Year declutter/organizing bug. One day my paperwork will look stunning.

        • Good on you for getting organized to start the new year! So sorry we couldn’t offer a beautiful accordion box to help with your cleanup this time, but we are still working on bringing them back to our collection for future.
