Hello friends and welcome. Christmas is coming ever closer and I am in full Christmas creating mode. But before I continue, let me start by saying that I hope that all my American friends and followers had a great Thanksgiving!
First off I am showing a couple of Christmas cards I made recently, I show them because they kind of relate to the main project I am sharing with you today:
I made these cards with a combination of some Tim Holtz 3D embossing folders and 3D embosslets and some of my own papers available in my Etsy shop HERE
I made the card bases from Kraft coloured file folders which I cut to size. I then was left with a strip of the folder, about 4" high and about 17" wide when folded open. This formed the base for the little notebook folder I am showing below: This project is similar to one I shared a while back here, just simpler and quicker to do. Perfect to make as little gifts for friends.
Let me quickly talk you through how I put it together:
Start with a strip of a file folder, roughly 4" high, score at 4" from each side and also 1/4" on each side of the centre fold of the file folder strip, this will be the place where you will sew in your little notebook.
Next cover each panel on both sides with your chosen papers cut to size. Make pockets on some of the panels, create tags or little journal cards to put in the pockets, and then embellish as you like. Below I will show you what I did and at the end of the post you will find a freebie that you can use as well.HERE The journal card which you can see more clearly in the last photo was collaged with elements of that same collection.
And just in case you are interested in some of the products I used, I will list them below, I have no affiliation with any of the linked shops, they are really just there for your convenience, specially for my UK visitors.
