WHAT ARE ACCORDIONS?
Accordions created by Lars Mayrand is a deck of cards that has been cut and woven together in a way that allows the cards to move around while staying together. No strings attached, adhesives used, or any funny business. Just paper. They’re called accordions because they can expand and contract just like the instrument, an "Accordion". Lars also considered calling them "Snakes".
