RRR Hop: Graphic 45 Fairie Dust Waterfall Folio

Really Reasonable Ribbon February Blog Hop:  Graphic 45 Fairie Dust Waterfall Folio

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  It’s time for the Really Reasonable Ribbon  February Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  Today, I’ve created a “Magical” Graphic 45 Fairie Dust Waterfall Folio using the gorgeous Purple & Green Ribbons from the February Ribbon Club.  They are a perfect match for the Graphic 45 Fairie Dust Collection!

I created a 5.25″ x 7.25″ hardcover folio with a .75″ spine.  The front of the album cover is a Prima Resin frame turned into a shaker element.  I don’t know what it is about this collection, but it just calls out for a shaker element!

The ribbon closure is 1.5″ Emerald Green Gingham. I secured it to the cover using strips of 1/2″ Scor-Tape.

I’ve incorporated belly bands to hold ephemera cards from the collection.

You can score and fold a large horizontal ephemera card to form a flap feature.

This large pocket will easily hold 4″ x 6″ photos.

Add ephemera cards for journaling.

This would be such a fun way to record a child’s birthday party or tea party, don’t you think?

    Your album is amazing! I love the shaker frame for the front and all the ways you added the beautiful bows and ribbons. I was reading and looking at the pictures and then stopped and went back to make sure I read the sentence right. You said this was a simple folio….my goodness I would hate to think of what you consider complicated. it is amazing! The layers and pockets and all the pretty touches.
    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely work! Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

    one of these myself.

      Thank you so much, Beca! It’s such a fun way to make a folio, and the inside comes together very quickly. I’ve had requests for a tutorial, so I’ll see what I can do about sharing a step out video soon.

    This is delightful! I’m gobsmacked at all the layers you’ve built up in such a small folio! You’d be great at arranging rooms in an apartment building 😛 . I also love that you’ve used that green gingham ribbon on this paper collection – it wouldn’t have been my first choice for sure – and, yet, it’s absolute perfection!
    Thanks – once again – for sharing!
