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.
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.
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.
