A Floral Shoppe Folder - Tutorial

Alexandra Morein

“As many of you must know, I love to create boxes, but today there is no box from me :)

I’ve created a folder to organize my receipts (for craft purchases) and filmed all the process on video. If you like the folder and would want to create one for yourself, you are very welcome to watch the tutorial and share the results with all of us, Graphic 45 fans.


The folder is 5”(W)  x 7” (L) and is about 3/4” in depth. It has an interesting elastic string closure, but I guess a wax cord or twine can also be used without a problem too. The folder is embellished with the paper from the “Floral Shoppe” line. I’ve used the new Graphic 45 dies to mat the tags with the designer paper, as well as to cut out a filigree clock frame for adding to the inside of the folder. The dies are amazing and they cut like butter! If you were wondering whether you need them or not, the answer should be quite clear - YOU DO! :)” ~Alexandra

I love this project. Is it possible to get the measurements of the paper and chipboard. I wasn’t able to see the pencil on all of the pieces. I would appreciate anything you could put in writing. Thank you! Shirley

I have been collecting Graphic 45 staples for quite awhile so now I have a pretty good idea what to do with some of them. Just have to buy a couple more items and I'll be all set. Thank you for the inspiration of a gorgeous project. My Husband is an avid flower gardener so I think this one will be for him to use for his garden notes and plans. He'll love it! Thank you again.

It is pretty common knowledge that most of us make our own flowers, mostly because the majority that are available to purchase are crumpled and bent out of shape. So much so that they look a pile of bed sheets ready to be thrown into the laundry. I am not trying to be mean, but I do lack certain social filters. So, I just had a long and excited look at Graphic 45's new Rose Bouquet Collection and I cannot wait! That bouquet would take me three days to make and it would not be any where near that pretty. Can you please hurry the production time up a bit...I am so excited. They are gorgeous! Sorry to be so blunt.

Very nice collection and tutorial! I wish I had a store near me that carried your products!

What a complete jerk he became after cheating on me on several occasion, his betrayal brought out the worst fear in me to reality. Insecurities almost tore me apart as I asked him if his mistress has bigger butt or breast? If she is machine in bed? If she smells better? If he prefers brunette or blonde? I was going insane. A lot of unanswered question forced him to leave, he moved in with her for three months. Three months made me realize how good he was before my temper caused him to looking outside. I also realized it is not good for our children to have a broken home. So I needed him back and also someone or something that can transform me into a better wife and mother. Under the mountain of frustration and betrayal comes Dr. Wakina by with the much anticipated help that did not only bring back my husband as a changed man, but made me superior over my disabilities. I am glad I picked faith over fear (through Dr. Wakina) which could have ruined my marriage. We are deeply in love again.
