Today Sarah creates a fun Easter Folio... just perfect for keeping your special Easter memories.
And be sure to read to the very end of the post...... Sarah has a surprise for us!!
Hello everyone! Sarah here, ready to share my final project of the month using the May 2018 Hippity Hoppity Kit. This fun folio really showcases the Echo Park Hello Easter paper collection and Ephemera Die Cuts.
To start with, I cut my base out of black card stock. The folio measures 8" x 6" when closed, so I just cut off the bottom of a 12x12" piece of card to 8" and then folded the sides in to the middle.
Next I got to work on the inside of my folio. I decided to make the ride hand side a waterfall feature. I cut extra black card stock to 2.5" x 4.5" to fit the width of the right hand column. Folding the tops down 1/2", I then used a corner rounder to give a slight decorative border on the bottom corners. I then used the 3" x 4" journaling cards from the paper collection and matted them on to the black card stock. I had to cut these down a little bit to fit, but I just chose cards that you can still see the sentiment and images on.
I then stuck down these pieces on the right hand side of the folio, sticking only the 1/2" flap down one under the other to give a waterfall effect.
When they flip up you can see the underside of the cards too, doubling the space for sentiments, journalling or photos.
Underneath the waterfall I stuck down a piece of card from the collection as a journalling spot and included this cute sentiment from the ephemera pack on the bottom.
With the right side finished, I moved on to the centre of the folio. Here I cut a piece of paper from the collection to fit and then made a pocket on top. I wanted the feature here to be a belly band, but as the base was so large it didn't quite work. Instead I made the sides using a strip of paper from the collection and then stuck this ephemera piece on top, sticking the bottom down to create a pocket. Now it's a pocket that acts as a faux belly band.
For the left hand side of the folio, I kept it simple and made two little pockets from the paper collection. I then put in two of the tags from the ephemera pack, that stick out nicely from the top of the pockets.
To finish the folio off, I matted some co-ordinating paper onto the front, and added a strip of bunnies on the bottom, which you'll see in the next photo. For a closure, I found these two buttons from my stash and used twine to wrap around them. First, I hot glued the twine to the underside of the pink button. Then I used 3D tape to stick the buttons down so that they are raised up, and wrapped the twine around them to close the folio.
And that's this project done! You can see the finished outside of the folio here.
And here is the inside.
As a special Easter treat, one lucky reader has won this folio. We randomly selected one person who commented on a blog post this month, and the winner is.... Deb Speijers!
Congratulations! I'll be sending this project out to you next week. I hope this was a nice surprise for you, and that you enjoy using this folio to store your Easter memories.
Have a lovely Easter everyone!
