Okay so without further ado… lets begin the tutorial!
Start with a sheet of White Cardstock- 8.5″ x 12″
Score the sheet on the 12″ side at 5 1/8″ and 10 3/8″. This will give you the basic shape of the folio with a side flap.
This is optional. You could round the edges of the entire sheet.
Let’s work on our closure. We are using three magnets to close the flap. You could use velcro or any other mechanism of your choice. First glue down the three magnets on the page that closes inside to the left.
Place a few things inside the folio to make it a little bulky. Add drops of glue on top of the magnet, and close the flap. This way the glue gets transferred onto the flap and you will know where to place your opposite magnets. Seal your magnets with tape.
Let’s make our pockets. For this cut white cardstock pieces of the following measurements- 3.5″ x 9.5″ (1piece- left pocket); 4 3/3″ x 9.5″ (1piece- right pocket); 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ (2 pieces right overlapping pockets)
Score the bigger pieces at 1/2″ on three sides and the smaller pieces at 1/4″ on three sides.
Fold along the score lines. And cut the corners at an angle.
Here’s a look at the pockets for inside of the folio.
Using a circle punch, cut a semi-circle at the centre of each pocket.
With this our basic construction of the Folio is ready. Let’s decorate it.
Cut pieces of pattern paper for your folio base inside and outside. We chose two different patterns and cut three pieces each of the following measurements- 4 7/8″ x 8 1/4″; 5″ x 8 1/4″; 1 1/2″ x 8 1/4″. Distress the edges using your coordinating Distress Ink. At every step, if you have rounded your corners, ensure you do the same to your pattern papers.
Using the same ink and the French Script Stencil, add another dimension to the pattern paper.
Using a different pattern paper cut pieces for the pockets as per the following measurements- 2 3/4″ x 8 1/4″; 4 1/8″ x 8 1/4″; 2 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. On the bigger pockets- using the French Script Stencil and Salmon Shimmer Paste add texture to these pieces. Once dry, using the Sliced Dots Stencil and Shimmer Spray Sweet Pumpkin, add further dimension. On the smaller pockets- using the Sliced Dots Stencil and Shimmer Spray Grape Juice add some interest.
Distress the edges of these papers with the same ink as above. Begin gluing your pieces. Glue the pattern paper onto the pockets first. While that dries, glue the paper inside the folio and then the pockets.
Lastly, For our front cover, we added some Salmon Shimmer Paste with the Sliced Dots Stencil for texture. Stamp the ‘Being Traditional’ lady stamp on a piece of cardstock and colour it. We used the same spray inks and fussy cut it. We used a MDF Frame, coloured it with the same inks, and added some design with a background stamp and black ink. Assemble these onto your cover. We used a piece of gauge behind our layering. We also added ‘Wishing Happy Moments’ on the cover using the ‘Happy’ stamp set directly on the cover. To embellish our pockets, we stamped some flowers and leaves from the ‘Sending Smiles’ Stamp set and coloured them with Zig markers. Fussy cut and stuck them.
Here’s a look at the completed Folio.
