The Stepped Accordion

The Stepped Accordion is a wonderful variation of the classic zig-zag accordion format. The key characteristic of the Stepped Accordion is the tapering of the panels, which results in a stepped edge that can be used as tabs or purely as a decorative element. The classic Stepped Accordion features a stepped right edge like this one, however there are many variations of stepped accordions.
