Unicorn Loaded Folder

Whether you need a gift for a unicorn lover or a project for a swap, this sweet "Loaded Folder" is completely made from scratch and oh-so-easy!

For the file folder: I cut a double-sided patterned paper  to 8" W X 10"H and then folded in half to measure 8"W X 5"H.  Next I made a center cut to one side of the paper (the front) and folded back to create a "collar".  The edges of the collar were embellished with buttons and border stickers.

Attaching the sides to create the folder: Using a small piece of the same paper, two 1" X 5"  sttips were cut and then folded in half and attached to the sides of the pocket.  By adding these "gussets" the folder is allowed to expand and accommodate a  ton of goodies!

One of the first inserts that I made was this adorable sequin-pocket-shaker!  
To make: I've used an 8X8 vertical photo page protector.  I carefully cut away the  edge (with the perforated holes) and the top 2X8" section.…

Hello Boardbook Mini Album

Happy Saturday!
I shared this so-fun-to-make mini album over at
DOODLEBUG DESIGNS
a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share here too!
I also have it up for SALE in my Etsy Shop :)

Using just a few pieces of leftover patterned paper and sheets of heavy card stock,
this mini album is so quick and easy to put together!  The assemblage is similar to a
 child's board book and is also very accommodating  for layered embellishments!

To begin I cut five sheets of 110lb. white card stock to measure: 9.75" X 6.25" 9.5" X 6.25" 9.25" X 6.25" 9" X 6.25" 8.75" X 6.25" Next, I placed each of the sheets onto a scoring board. Each sheet was scored at 4.25"
and then turned 180" and scored again at 4.25".  After folding all of the sheets along
 the score lines, I started building the pages beginning with the longest sheet first.
I added an extreme double-sided tape between all of the sheet's score lines and
 began assembling the …

Cards of PUN Mini Album

We all have that special person that we make a great combo with!
 I'm sharing a sweet little mini album using several of the
A2 "Creat-A-Cards" and the "So Much Pun" Collection from
DOODLEBUG DESIGN

I turned the cards horizontally, with the openings to the right.  A strip of patterned paper was cut to  9"X3.5" and scored in half.  The paper was then attached to the front card flap ( and repeated for the following card fronts). For the cover: I did leave an opening along the top so that a tag could be included. 

I used a binding system and metal comb to hold the pages together.  After embellishing a metal-rimmed tag from my stash, I slipped it onto the comb.


In prepping all of the "card" pages, I attached mats of various patterns before setting out to add the embellishments.

To stretch the remnants of the 6X6 papers, a few of the pages used pieced papers for the mats; the seams were hidden with border stickers or washi tape!




For most of the 2…
