Let it Snow Flip Folio with Authentique Wintery for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  For this episode of Throwback Thursday I’ve prepared this adorable Let it Snow Flip Folio Tutorial.  I reached all the way back to October 2016 when Authentique Paper released their gorgeous vintage style Wintery collection.  This was the collection that convinced me to find a way to get on this design team.  It’s so perfectly vintage, but perfectly fresh…which is kind of Authentique Paper’s wheelhouse.  (By the way, I was asked to Guest Design for Authentique Paper in May 2017, and I gleefully joined the team after that Guest Designer spot. I joke with Samantha, the owner, that I had to woo her hard in between those two dates.)

Let it Snow Flip Folio Details

This little folio is 5 1/2″ square with a 1 1/2″ spine.  The design is simple, but elegant.  Here’s how the front cover comes together:

  • First, cover a G45 Ivory Square Tag with designer paper from the Wintery collection.  Use the tag tie to cut the paper liner.
  • Next, heat emboss a Reneabouquets Snowflake Shadow Box with Stampendous Shabby Blue Frantage Embossing Enamel.
  • Then, build the shaker box following Renea’s YouTube tutorial.
  • Now fill the shaker box with a sequin mix.  My mix is linked in the supply list below this post.
  • Next adhere the shaker box to the striped 3×4 journal card from the paper collection.
  • Then adhere this whole piece to the covered G45 tag.
  • Before you adhere the tag to the cover, be sure to wrap the folio with ribbon.

  • Next, attach the Reneabouquets Snowman to the right hand side of the shaker box.  Use foam tape to fill in the space behind the body.
  • Now all that is left to do is add your winter greenery, flowers and embellishments.

Here’s a look at the spine.

It’s always easier to get a feel for the layout and flow of an interactive folio in a video.  So I’ve prepared a short project tour.  This is followed by a tutorial that will help you build the base and the interactive elements within the folio.  I hope you enjoy!

I hope I’ve inspired you to dig into your paper stash, pull out a lovely older collection and make something beautiful today.

Thanks for stopping by!

    So cute with the snowman theme. We had 12 inches at the beginning of this month. It finally disappeared and we just got 1 inch now.

    Oh how I love Throwback Thursdays; an event to look forward to that just delights and makes your soul smile. This is a wonderfully delightful make and reminder that Christmas is as magical as your folio! Love, Love the fun and splendid embellishments (of which you are a master). The vintage profile of this folio is a favorite of mine. Thanks for another happy morning!!!!

    But I want to add a caveat to the sentiment; “Let It Snow…just not in my neighborhood.” (he,he)


    Love your Snowman folio – right down to all the wonderful embellishments – beautiful work, Kathy!!
