Disney Pixar Blog Hop Day Two

Welcome to the Third Original Disney Pixar Blog Hop! This is the second day of our fun filled hop.

You should have arrived here from Susan's Blog. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to start at the beginning please go to Shawn's blog by clicking here.

I want to take a moment to thank Shawn and co-host Melissa for giving me the opportunity to participate in this wonderful hop again.

My project today is all about Disney Classics.

I took my inspiration from a class by Awesome Albums from the Creating Keepsakes Convention of 2009. I decided that this was the perfect thing to make in order to showcase Alice in Wonderland.

The pictures don't show all the glitter on the characters and the shiny papers that I used. But I sure had fun creating it and hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Front cover:

Here's a closer look at the title.

Inside the folio.

Here are the close up pictures of the tags. It's so hard to tell but I used a pearlescent paper on the watch, vest, and umbrella.

Back of tags.

Instructions for the Tagged Folio by Awesome Albums
Things that I changed on this folio:
I used Velcro as my closure instead of two brads and a string.
I changed the sizes of my patterned paper to decorate the outside of the folio.
I chose to decorate my tags; the teacher chose to leave them plain for the class.

Cut printed papers to size.
Print A: 5.5”X12” and 5.5”X6.5”
Print B: 6X8”
Glue the 6X8 piece to the Chipboard

Cut card stock to size.
Color A: 2 sheets cut into 6 pieces 5x7”
Color B: 3 sheets, cut to 6x6”, 6X9”, 6X5.5”, 6 pieces 4X12

Fold and score the 4X12 card stock at 3”, and 8.5”. Fold and glue the overlap. Stack folded pieces and glue only in the center in a vertical line.

Fold and score the 6x6 card stock at 4.5 and 5.5”
Fold and score the 6X9 card stock at 8”
Fold and score the 6X5.5” card stock at 4.5”
Glue first piece to the board creating upper flap
Glue second piece to the board leaving bottom 1”
Glue third piece to the bottom 1”
Cover those with print A using the smaller piece on the lower portion
Insert folio section into lower portion gluing only in the center of the front and back as you did when building the stack.

Attach brads to front and tie upper brad with string creating closure.
Decorate front as desired
Staple or glue ribbon tabs to 5x7” cards and insert into pockets.

1. Crate paper portrait collection /something blue pack

Jessica said...

Tami, your folio is magnificent. You put a lot of time into it, that's quite evident. I probably would snag your idea for using it for tags. I just made my first tag the other day and can't wait to make more. This would be a great gift idea to give to someone who enjoys crafting...maybe to offer up as a blog candy giveaway. Ok, now I am rambling...more ideas are popping in my head now....LOL! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creations.
Happy to be a new follower!

Susan said...

Connie said...

I love this. it would be fun to add a picture with each tag. thanks for the instructions.

Stacey said...

WOWZERS!!! That is one awesome folio :) I would use it as a count down calendar to a special my niece's birthday! Each tag would have a special little saying on it for her leading up to her Special Day :) I am definately "lifting" this idea! Thank you so much for sharing :):):)

HI, I'm a new follower and think your blog is great! The folio is such a great idea and if I make one, (thanks to your amazing detailed instructions) I would use it to file the Disney pics that I have to scrap...I have lots! I feel your pain at not being able to clearly see the beautiful papers used in your project. Stop over if you can & see my Cinderella page where I also used glitter paper etc. & it's hard to get it looking good!Thanks for the give a way.

Amy said...

Holy Macaroni, Tami... This is SPECTACULAR!! I love all the details on your beautiful tags!! If I made a folio, I'd like to have one for keeping different tag embellishments (or other small pre-made embellishments) to add quickly to projects... And one for keeping those little school-size pictures would be nice for a teacher... And maybe a Christmas one filled with Christmas tags!! Oh, the possibilities!! I just LOVE this!! :) Thanks so much for sharing -- what fun to be in this hop with you!! :)

Hope to see you for the Disney/Pixar Decoration Challenge at Love To Crop! beginning tomorrow!! :)

Denise-Scrapmouse said...

Wow, awesome tags & album! If I made an album like this, I would use it for character autographs & photos. The characters could sign one side and I could add photos to the other side. Would be easy to carry around in the parks too. Thanks for sharing.
