Authentique Calendar Grateful Heart Thanksgiving Folio
Hello, Friends! It’s my favorite season of the year: the thankful season! Today I’m sharing a lovely little Grateful Heart Thanksgiving Folio made with Authentique Paper’s brand new Calendar Collection. It’s my contribution to the Group Post over on the Authentique Blog.
This little 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ folio is tiny, but mighty! Thanks to the double z-fold design, there’s loads of room to add paper pretties, photos, and journaling entries inside.
There are 10 panels on this card, making it the perfect vehicle for the new Calendar Collection. I love the fact that the collections come with color matched cardstock so that you have everything you need to make a beautiful card, folio, or layout. It’s amazing!
Double Z Fold cards are super easy to make! You can find a tutorial for making the base HERE.
You have to love the fact that these cards open out to a width of over 19″! Wouldn’t that be pretty on your Thanksgiving buffet table?
Grateful Heart Thanksgiving Folio: What’s in the Pocket?
Of course, I added a pocket to the folio! Don’t I add a pocket to everything? It’s kind of my signature move! This one is made with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ panel of kraft cardstock. Score it at 4 1/4, 8 1/2″ and then trim and fold to form a little pocket inside.
Tuck some tags and paper pretties into the pockets.
TIP: Die cut a little decorative piece for the pocket flap. Then use the negative cut as a second pocket. Back the empty space where the label was with designer paper, then adhere the sides and bottom. Instant tea bag pocket, and oh, so cute!
Grateful Heart Thanksgiving Folio: The Flip Side
Don’t forget to decorate the flip side of this folio! You have lots of room to decorate. Use the center panel as a photo spot. Just be sure to adhere only the bottom edge of the little sentiment panel to the card base. Then the photo can be tucked behind it.
And don’t forget to add a spot to write down those precious memories or a special greeting. This lightly distressed panel is the perfect spot for that!
