Pink Flamingo Valentines Day Mini File Folder for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! When I was a little girl, my great-grandmother had gorgeous flower gardens. They were always blooming with some fabulous variety of Iris, or Peonies, or Hydrangeas. But the thing I remember the most about her gorgeous flower beds was a pair of pink plastic flamingos that flanked the bird bath. I was entranced by these exotic birds! So, when I found the new Fabulous collection from Authentique, I had to have it. As luck would have it, the papers look smashing with the January Ribbon Club Assortment from RRR. This little Pink Flamingo Valentines Day mini folder is a prime example of how much fun it is to mix pink papers with red ribbons.
This little portfolio/file folder measures 4″ x 5.5″. I created a tie closure by layering Red Chevron Striped Grosgrain ribbon over Red Swirls on White Satin Ribbon. Scor-Tape holds both ribbons firmly in place. I used my Zutter Bow it All Tool to tie a tiny White Taffeta Bow and tucked it beneath my Petaloo blooms to anchor them in the corner. The side bow is tied with 5/8″ Red Satin with a grosgrain edge. I love working with this particular ribbon because it ties gorgeous bows!
Let’s Take a Look Inside
There’s a whole lotta fun stuffed inside this mini folder. Each side has a cute little pocket that I’ve decorated with papers from the collection and more fabulous ribbon.
The pocket on the right has a fun vintage button card that I’ve topped with paper spool. The spool is wrapped with Random Hearts and Confetti Dots grosgrain ribbon. I’ve secured the ribbon in place with black burlap string and a couple of stick pins.
Although this would make a great Valentine, I think you could also send it out to cheer up a friend in the middle of winter. I mean, really….can you stop yourself from smiling when you see pink flamingos? I, for one, cannot!
Thanks for stopping by!
