Hello, G45ers!

 Today on the Graphic 45 blog we are unfolding this fun A Ladies’ Diary Folio by Brand Ambassador, Kavi Tha.  This Double Fold Mini was inspired by our Double Fold Card Tutorial as a part of our #ClubG45LeveledUp series.  Below you will find how Kavi took our simple card and turned it into this interactive mini album with a waterfall feature and pull out tags with oodles of space for photos and journaling.  



Double Folio 


By Kavi Tha


“Hello Friends,

I am excited to share my #ClubG45LeveledUp project with you all using one of my very favorite A Ladies’ Diary - Deluxe Collector’s Edition, its infact one of my first few collections I got from Graphic45


I decided to upscale the “Double fold card”” from #club45 vol 2 2019 and turn it into a fun little folio with added tags and pockets.I also add a waterfall element on one side which gives more space for photos


You can view the detailed video tutorial by Charee Filimoehala HERE, I would like to share a few steps for creating the base and the measurements.

Printable Project Sheet




Step by Step Tutorial:

My folio measures 5 ½ by 7 ½ inches and the second card measure 4 ½ by 6 ½ inches and the strip measure  1 ½ by 7 ½ inches


Take a 7 ½ by 11 ½ inches black card stock and  and score at 5 ½ and 6 inches on the long side.For the strip take 2 by 7 ½ inches and score at ½ inch.Attach the strip to the base


To make the waterfall base  take one piece of 5 by 7 inches cardstock.For the flaps take seven pieces of  4 by 5 inches cardstock and score at ½ inch and stick them to the base one by one.


To make the clouser take a strip of 2 by 6 ½ inches and score at ½ inch long side and glue it to the backside .Add magnets on the first flap and to the strip using double sided tape


I decorated the cover with few fussy elements from the paper pad.The paper itself was so beautiful that you don't need anything extra to decorate 


For the first flap I left space for a large 4 by 6 photo one one side and added a pocket on the other side.I added some cut aparts fussy cut elements to decorate it 


Here is another space for a large photo of 5 by 7 size


I added a double pocket on left side and kept two black rectangular tags,trimmed of the second one a little to fit in.Again the pocket is decorated with cut aparts and fussy cut elements


I added an extra flap and pocket to each tag to give more space for photos and journaling
