Authentique Cottontail Z-Fold Folio Tutorial for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  Last week, I shared a fun Z-Fold Folio Tutorial using Photoplay Great Outdoors papers.  It was such a great project that I decided I needed to make another one.  But this time, I used beautiful papers from Authentique’s retired Cottontail line.  I changed up the design a little bit, too!  So I like this version of that fun folio base even better than the last one!

While the basic design and flow of the folio is the same, I did enlarge the individual panels just a little bit to make it easier to add photos.  And since this is an Easter themed folio, I was able to dress it up with all kinds of pretty flowers, ribbon, butterflies and Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets.  You’ll find all these goodies linked in the supply list below this post.

Look at this darling bunny peeking at you from the shaker frame!  A quick shout out to my crafty follower, Lynn, who sent me a lovely package of die cut frames a while back.  This pretty pink frame worked perfectly for this project.  Thank you, Lynn!  You can learn how I  made the shaker element in the video tutorial.

So many cute bunnies!  How can one possibly pick a favorite?

More Room for Photos

This folio is really loaded with room for photos and journaling!  The pocket page holds a mini accordion folio.  Sweet images on the front make room for wallet sized photos on the back.  The next page features a little flap element with room for 2 nice sized photos behind it.

And did I forget to mention that the front flap pulls out to reveal hidden photo mats behind it?  How fun is that?

Then there’s this neat tip in page and lateral waterfall page.  The little bunny icons work so well as turn tabs!
