Add Another Candle Birthday Folio

Photoplay Add Another Candle Birthday Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Add Another Candle Birthday Folio with Ribbon Closure

Hello, Friends!  If you’re a fan of vibrant color, you’re going to like this Add Another Candle Birthday Folio.  It’s like a surprise party on paper!  First, I created a simple folio base.  (You can find a tutorial for the base HERE.) Then I covered it with Photoplay’s festive Add Another Candle Paper Collection.  The finishing touch is a shimmering Tangerine Checkerboard Satin Ribbon Closure to tie everything together.

A Party on Paper

This project was a special order in my Etsy shop.  My client requested a bright, fun birthday folio with lots of charms and embellishments.  We can do that!  I really had fun putting the collage style cover on this festive folio.

TIP: Tuck tiny burlap string bows under your itty bitty floral arrangements.  The burlap string loops take the place of leaves.  And the bow draws the eye to the pretty flowers.

Top the spine of your folio with a Fuchsia, Orange and Lavender Check Bow.  Then dangle your charms below it.  This particular ribbon is a match made in heaven for this paper collection.

A Peek Inside

Every single page of this 4-fold folio is filled with fun.

From slash pockets to flip pages to hidden pages, there’s something exciting on every single page.

My client was very happy with her special order folio.  I felt energized and happy the entire time I was working on it, too.  These bold colors added extra zest to the creative process!

Thanks for stopping by!
