Midnight Tales Fold out Folio for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2021 Blog Hop
Hello, Friends! This Graphic 45 Midnight Tales Fold Out Folio is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2021 Blog Hop. You should be coming here from Ginny’s gorgeous blog. Today we’re focusing on the spooktacular RRR Halloween Ribbon Club Assortment.
The Grape Diamond Satin Ribbon was the perfect accent for this 5 1/2″ square folio.
It really pops off the page, especially when layered over Black Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.
Add some ribbon to the spine, too. It’s always a great accent!
A Peek Inside
Make this simple fold out style folio by joining two 11″ x 5 1/2″ panels of cardstock together. Then score from the left at 5 1/2″ and 6 1/2″. This forms the cover and spine of the album.
Then score the rest of the paper every 5 1/4″. Accordion fold to create this pull out element. It’s one of the easiest ways to create a quick folio with lots of room for photos and journaling.
Score ephemera cards to create a little flip action on the right hand side of the album.
Add pockets, flap pages and ephemera to dress op the folio pages.
Decorate the background of a page with 2 1/4″ squares of designer paper. Then top it with a little fold out folio. This is a great way to use up bits and bobs of designer paper.
Adhere ephemera cards to tip in pages so you will have room to write down those important memories. Photos can be mounted on the base page.
A little folio like this one can easily be finished in a day. I only had scraps of the paper collection to work with, but I was pleasantly surprised at how far those scraps went!
