Friendship Photo Folio

Hey, Gang! I am up on the CutCardStock Blog today! Our theme for June is "Friendship" and our product focus is Pop-Tones Cardstock. I have created a 7" x 5" photo folio tutorial to share.
The folio folds up to 7" tall by 5" wide and is 1/8" thick. I have added a magnetized band to keep the folio closed. I paired the bold Pop-Tones Cardstock with pretty decorative paper to make a fun gift, perfect for your best friend!
The folio opens to 11" wide and contains space for a large photo, plus there is a pocket where you may add more photos or journaling cards. I used photos of "found relatives" for may sample! I love these ladies! My daughter said the gals who are full-on laughing are all me! {giggle}

Let's get started on the tutorial. 
1. Cut Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock to 7" x 11" and score at 1", 1 1/8", 6 1/8", and 6 1/4" on the 11-inch side. Fold on all score lines.
2. Cut Pop-Tones Berrylicious Cardstock to 6 7/8" x 7/8" and attach to the 1-inch tab. Cut Pop-Tones Wild Cherry Cardstock to 6 3/4" x 3/4" and attach to the top of the Berrylicious Cardstock. Cut decorative border to 6 5/8" x 5/8" and attach over the Wild Cherry Cardstock. (I simply love the names of the Pop-Tones Cardstock!)

3. Cut shells decorative paper (Graphic 45 By the Sea) to 6 7/8" x 4 7/8" and attach to the middle panel. (This panel will become the back of the folio when folded.) 

4. Cut Berrylicious Cardstock to 6 7/8" x 4 7/8" and attach to the last panel. (This panel will become the front of the folio when folded.) Cut Wild Cherry Cardstock to 6 3/4" x  4 3/4" and attach to the top of the Berrylicious Cardstock. Cut plaid decorative paper to 6 5/8" x 4 5/8" and attach over the Wild Cherry Cardstock.
5. Fold the folio so that the 1-inch tab is on the right side of the project as shown. Burnish all score lines.
6. Cut a border strip from decorative paper that is 1 1/4" wide by 12" long. Place a magnet under the right edge of the border strip, then wrap the strip to the left edge and around to the back of the folio. Place a second magnet onto the back of the loose end of the border strip.
The back of the folio will look like the photo above.
7. Glue a decorative chipboard element to the top of the border strip. Stamp word art onto Solar White Cardstock with black ink. Cut the image into a banner shape. Cut Wild Cherry Cardstock into a banner shape, slightly larger than the image. Mat the image and attach to the upper left corner of the folio. Embellish the image with sticker corners and fussy cut shells.
8. Open the folio and cut plaid decorative paper to 6 7/8" x 7/8" and attach to the 1-inch tab.

9. Cut Berrylicious Cardstock to 6 7/8" x 4 7/8" and attach to the center panel. Cut Wild Cherry Cardstock to 6 1/8" x 4 5/8" and attach to the top of the Berrylicious Cardstock.

10. Cut a photograph slightly smaller than the Wild Cherry photo mat and attach to the panel. (The photo shown was printed onto the Solar White Cardstock for a matte finish.)

11. Cut plaid decorative paper to 1/2" x 4 5/8" and attach to the bottom of the Berrylicious Cartstock mat. Add a decorative sticker strip to the center of the plaid paper.

13. Cut blue checked paper to 6 7/8" x 4 5/8" and attach to the first panel.
13. Create a pocket for the first panel. Cut Wild Cherry Cardstock to 2 3/8" x 4 5/8" and attach it on three side to the bottom of the first panel. Trim Berrylicious Cardstock to 2 1/4" x 4 1/2" and attach to the center of the pocket. Trim plaid decorative paper to 2 1/8" x 4 3/8" and attach to the center of the pocket.

14. Cut a strip of Wild Cherry Cardstock to approximately 1" x 4 5/8" and punch one edge with a scalloped border punch. Attach the strip to the top of the pocket. Cut a decorative border to fit the scalloped border strip and attach.
15. Stamp a sentiment onto Solar White Cardstock with black ink and cut into a banner shape. Attach the sentiment to the left side of the pocket with foam adhesive. Place photos and journaling spots into the pocket.
16. Mat photos onto Solar White Cardstock, if desired. Write notes on the back of each photo. 
17. Stamp a sentiment onto Solar White Cardstock with black ink and cut into a banner shape. Attach the sentiment to the upper left corner of the photo with foam adhesive.

  2. Oh Gloria, this is fabulous. I have the shell paper, not not any of the others. Now I need to go find that luscious plaid. But, I have enough papers to do a sports theme. Love this folio pattern. Thanks for all you do. I may not get to all your posts, but when I do, it's so inspiring. Thank you. Have a blessed day.
