Old World Vintage Style Valentine Folio Just for Fun
Hello, Friends! Today I have another “just for fun” project to share with you. This one is an Old World Vintage Style Valentine Folio. It’s pink and shabby chic, and distressed and filled with fun surprises.
I just love Valentine’s Day! My mom and dad were married on Valentine’s Day, Dale and I were married 2 days after Valentine’s Day, our oldest son and his wife married just after Valentine’s Day and our middle son and his wife married just before Valentine’s Day. When I was a kid, I made Valentine’s for my entire family every year. I can remember re-using old envelopes and stuffing them with cut our hearts and little notes. Seems like I still like to do that, right?
This is one of my book style folios. These are so much fun to make. The base is created by joining together 2 panels for cardstock cut to measure 11″ x 5″. Join the panels to create a long, 22″ panel, then score in a spine and a pocket. So easy, and so much fun to do.
The focal point on this folio is a Melissa Frances resin angel. I was digging through my stash and thought it would go perfectly with these Lemon Craft Painted Heart papers. It’s clustered up with some WOC flowers and a custom dyed seam binding bow. Before I added it to the card, I spritzed it with Vintage Pink Tattered Angels Mist.
Lots of layers….lots of distressing, lace trim and a curled corner give this pretty Valentine a real Old World Vintage vibe.
Old World Vintage Style Valentine Folio: A Peek Inside
The inside of this Valentine folio is filled with sweet surprises.
The pocket on the left holds a darling little tea wallet with a miniature spoon. Can you believe this is a plastic spoon? I found it on a shopping expedition at Tuesday Morning.
The side pocket is filled with a pretty little art tag, a sentiment tag, and a little chocolate wallet. Because, hey…it’s Valentine’s Day and you gotta have chocolate!
If you need a Valentine for your favorite tea drinker, this would do the trick. You can purchase it in my ETSY shop if you’d like.
I hope this Old World Vintage Style Valentine Folio has provided you with inspiration and ideas for your own Valentine adventures. If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
Thanks for stopping by!
….so beautiful! Hugs
Beautiful, as always.
Just awe inspiring! I love every single detail, but my favorite is that little collection of hearts backed with the tag and topped with the cherub. So sweet! And that art tag tucked in there is a gift in itself! Sooo, so pretty! Giggled a bit when I first saw this. I am using the same collection by Lemon Craft for a Valentine to be posted in the future. Nothing like this, though! Sending big hugs!
I love the neat pockets and the tea wallet. Beautiful!
