Graphic 45 October Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial with Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!   Well, it’s time to make our Graphic 45 October Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial.  This month’s folio is too cute to spook with cute Halloween images and lovely fall florals.  If you’ve just discovered this year-long Throwback Thursday series, you can find out how to make the first 9 folios HERE.


The star of the show this month is Darla, the cutest little witch you’ve ever seen!  She’s sitting on a pumpkin in the middle of the flower patch,  trying to figure out who she’ll be for Halloween.  Silly girl!


You just have to add a dangle charm to an October desk folio!  So I grouped together a pumpkin and a word token with this fabulous steampunk key.

What’s Inside?

The brake for this easel card is actually a pocket.  And if you have a pocket, you have to put something in it, right?

So we stirred up some special Halloween goodies to go inside our pocket this month.  You’ll learn how to make them in the video tutorial below.

Hidden Pocket!


Just a like a good mystery novel, there’s a hidden compartment tucked beneath this easel card folio!  The hidden pocket holds another interactive folio.

You’ll find another treat-filled pocket inside!

And a fun little flip page, too!

If you’d like to see all the details of this desk folio and learn how to make your own, please enjoy this video tutorial over on my YouTube channel. 


It’s hard to believe that we are getting close to the end of this year-long series.  I’ll have to start thinking about what kind of series to share with you in 2023!  Any thoughts?

You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    You are the folio queen :) I do love Halloween but oddly don’t have much halloween papers etc. Really love the little witch, the amount of detail is amazing.

    You have pinned it with the colours and layers Kathy. Your use of the bits and pieces to add interest and dimension and the perfect embellishments makes these folios special indeed. I have enjoyed seeing these made each month and am looking forward to the final two!

    Kathy, I love these folios that have so much to enjoy! Your embellishments are always so wonderful and perfect for the occasion. The layering effects on this folio are fantastic! Everything flows so perfectly. The little pumpkin girl is just precious and that black doily is a wonderful backdrop for that cute Darla the Witch. This collection was always a favorite, especially the Fall papers. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
