Hello friends, hope you are all well. I have not posted for a while because I have had computer issues, also I have been busy creating projects for design teams, but today I have a fun project to share, - an altered file folder, so here goes:
The folder is made from a manilla coloured file folder, and I used Prima Lavender papers to decorate it through out.
The front is decorated with some home made flowers, lace and a couple of little charms attached to the ribbon that closes it.
I also used some of the gorgeous Prima Lavender Washi tapes through out to decorate it.
On the inside there are pockets, and each pocket holds a lace bobbin/spool or whatever you want to call it, because this is for a friend who loves lace.
Here is the second page with further lace spools, each type of lace is slightly different.
I made the spools myself by printing some freebies I made a number of years back on card. I fussy-cut them and then added the lace from my stash.
As I thought some of you might like to do something similar (it's a great way to store your laces), - I will post the freebies below here again too. I think they were the most popular freebies I ever posted, so if you have not seen them before, here they are:
They print on A4 or 8.5/11 paper, but in case you want to print them individually, let me know and I can sent you the individual high res files. Here is one example:
I noticed that the Funkie Junkie Challenge blog is running a layers of lace challenge right now, so I am going to link this there. And if you are interested how to make a file folder like this yourself, - there are many tutorials on youtube and in a few weeks time I will have a full tutorial of a different style folder as well.
Well, that's it for now, - many thanks for your visit like always and happy crafting!
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
