A Floral Shoppe Folder – Tutorial
“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
