Hello, Friends! Today we’re going to Celebrate Life with a simple pocket style folio tutorial.
This 6×6 inch folio is made with Little Birdie’s “Celebrate Life” paper collection, primed chipboard, Fairy Sparkle flowers and 2 sheets of 12×12 inch cardstock. It’s another quick and easy project, so it’s a perfect gift for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or any event you wish to celebrate and document.
I’ve created a little garden scene on the front of the folio by layering primed chipboard, fussy cut images and flowers over a 6″ x 6″ Celebrate Life panel. A ribbon closure adds a bit of shimmer.
The folio base is created by cutting 2 sheets of 12″ x 12″ cardstock into 12″ x 6″ panels. The panels are then overlapped and joined together with adhesive. A few simple score lines, an easy accordion fold, a little adhesive and you’ve got a lovely little folio in no time flat!
The inside pages are loaded with pockets, tuck spots, pull out pages and lots of sweet little tags.
Cut the tags with the Little Birdie Dream Cut Machine and tag dies. Join the tags together with jump rings to create spots for journaling or small photos.
The large pull out inserts, each have room for 4 photos and a tuck spot to hold journaling tags. Create the tuck spot by adhering just the bottom edge of a punch out doily to the page base. Now you can add a photo and your journal spots behind the doily.
The video tutorial below will guide you through the process of creating the folio base, making the slash pockets, the pull out inserts and little tags.
It’s easy to adapt this basic design for any occasion! Just change out your paper collection!
I hope you’ll enjoy making this quick and easy folio!
