Bee Themed Folio with Your Creative Studio and Reneabouquets and Unboxing Video
Hello, Friends! I began work on this Bee Themed Folio last month just as I was starting to come down with a summer cold that dragged on and on. (I’m all better now, thanks!) Because I did not feel like working, I packed the project back into the box of goodies from Your Creative Studio and moved it off my desk. I found it a few days ago while cleaning the studio, and decided to finish working on it. So I’m here today to share both the unboxing video and a quick little project share.
Here’s the finished folio. It’s made with kraft cardstock, burlap panels, papers from the YCV March Bee box and a few goodies from Reneabouquets. It’s much prettier than this photo shows. I think perhaps this shade of yellow is difficult for the camera lens to balance. It measures 5 3/4″ x 8 1/2″ and has 4 folded sections inside.
TIP: Burlap is easier to work with if you attach it to iron on interfacing from the fabric store. Then it stitches up like a dream.
A Peek Inside
I designed the folio to serve as a sort of desk companion. There’s room for a photo or two, but mostly it contains notecards, these cute sunflower sticky notes, pockets, envelopes and a few surprises.
This simple note card set makes a lovely gift. I’ve wrapped them with a belly band and added one of the cute bee stickers from the YCV box.
Each notecard is 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Paper panels from the YCV box are stitched onto brown cardstock, then matted on cream cardstock. The inside has a cream cardstock panel that I stamped with the cute honey jar stamp.
The fourth panel in this folio is a 4″ flip page. The paper panels and stamps are from the box. These would also make beautiful, simple note cards. A belly band holds a bunch of goodies in place on the 2nd panel.
The back side of the flap page is a sweet little kinetic waterfall featuring the 3×3 paper squares from the box. Buzzing bees adorn the pocket on the 3rd panel, which I have filled with a decorated envelope (product packaging) and a scratch pad.
Here’s a little peek at the sweet bookmark, mini note card and storage envelopes I tucked into this desk companion folio. You’ll see more in the short video tour below.

If you’d like to see all the goodies that came in the March box and take a better look at the desk companion folio, I hope you’ll enjoy this video.
That’s all for me today, friends. I have company coming in this weekend, so I need to go do some cooking and cleaning.
