Throwback Thursday: Graphic 45 Time to Flourish May Folio Tutorial
Hello, Friends! Even though it’s hard to believe, it is time to share our Graphic 45 Time to Flourish May Folio Tutorial. May??? Seriously? Where is this year going? If you are a regular follower on this blog, then you know we are enjoying a monthly series featuring this gorgeous paper collection. New to the blog? You can catch up on the previous months’ tutorials HERE.
May’s papers are so elegant with shades of purple, dragonflies, luscious botanical prints and floral images. I decided to pull out the green hues in the color palette rather than the pink ones. The end result is a regal looking folio that is perfect for Mother’s Day, May birthdays or any special occasion!
Layers of Love
I am so very fond of all the dragonflies that are depicted in the May papers. they haven’t appeared in my back yard yet this year, but my granddaughters have seen them! Because they are one of my favorite winged creatures, I echoed the dragonflies in the designer paper with a Reneabouquets glitter glass dragonfly and a silver dragonfly charm that I found in my stash. Perched on a heat embossed April in Paris Beautiful Board Doily, it really sets the tone for this folio.
Here’s a view from above with the folio peeking out from the hidden pocket.
You’ll find a pocket inside the folio, too. This one does double duty: it serves as a stopper or brake for the easel mechanism as well as a spot to tuck in photo mats and journal cards.
Hidden Pocket Mini Folio
We will create a 5 1/2″ square folio to tuck into the hidden pocket located beneath the card base.
There’s a storage pocket inside as well as a lovely flap page.
I’ve added photo mats and journal cards inside the folio. You’ll see how all of this comes together in the video tutorial below.
