I realised I haven't shown you the hostess gift I gave the lovely Kim at her November Christmas themed workshop. This was a very special workshop as it I ran it with one of my newest downlines - Beverlee - who also happens to be Kim's Mum. I demo'd a petal cone die project (reminder that still need to show you that too) & Beverlee took the girls through a make & take card (which I don't have a pic of - sorry!).
My gift was a book of Christmas tags...
Here it is open...
More about the folder... It's very simple - just one piece of card scored & folded a couple of times to make a spine & base. I can't give you the measurements for this one as I forget to take them before I gave the folder to Kim. I think the front is probably around 14cm x 9cm though.
I've put together this quick template to show you the score lines required. You can adjust the size to fit whatever you want inside.
- The vertical score lines form the spine of the folder.
- The horizonal lines form a base & a flap to hold the items in place. I cut out the centre piece as shown to make a neat finish.
- I use a brad to secure the edge of the flap. This also holds the ribbon in place (you can see the brad on the cover - I covered the inside with the paper).
- Just one more tip - the base scores should be half the width of the vertical scores, so the folder folds neatly in half.
While I'm linking, you can see another Big Shot project I demonstrated at Kim's previous workshop here.)
Well, this post has taken me so long that the shutters are all installed now, so I'm off to check them out... after adding the supply list. Until next time.
