Card Folio with Gracious
The cover decoration is layered to allow the focal image to act as a magnetic closure for the little folio.
There is space to place a hidden photo or some journaling onto the cover!
Once the folio is all opened there is space at least 10 photos or journaling. Plus there is a cute gift card pocket that fits a standard gift card (or a check or cash).
To make a folio, cut dark brown cardstock to 7" tall by 11" wide. Score on the long side from the left at 4 3/4", 4 7/8", 9 7/8", and 10". Fold and burnish the score lines.
Place the scored panel on your work surface with the 1" scored section to the left. This is the outside of the folio. Cut a strip of cardstock to 1" x 4" and attach to the center of the 1" panel as shown. This will become the latch for your folio. Cut decorative paper to fit the strip (7/8" x 3 7/8").
Cut paper for the center panel, which will become the back of the folio. Cut this paper to 6 7/8" x 4 3/8" and attach.
Place a magnet onto the far right panel, approximately 3 1/4" from the top edge and 2" from the right edge. Then, cut Spectrum Mustard Seed cardstock to 6 7/8" x 4 5/8" and attach to the right panel. This will become the front of the folio.
Trim decorative paper to 6 7/8" x 7/8" and attach to the first skinny panel, as shown.
Cut decorative paper to 6 3/4" x 4 1/2" and attach to the Mustard Seed cardstock panel. Then, fold the folio on the score lines so that all the paper you just added is on the outside surface. Your project should look like the one above.
Cut a strip of paper to to 6 7/8" x 7/8" and attach to the closure strip on the right.
Add flowers and other embellishments as desired.
Under the last waterfall page, add a journaling spot and a gift card holder.
