Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio

Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a “pear-fectly” wonderful little gift idea to share with you.  This Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio is a gift, a card, and a mini album all in one neat and tidy 5 1/2″ square package.  It’s one of my box style cards, which means I’ve loaded it up with all kinds of tea party goodies on the inside.

The Fruit Paradise flowers are so very lovely!  By adding in some green and gold tones with the pink, the color palette transitions gracefully into fall.  And do you see those darling wee pears?  Those were a gift from my sweet friend in Montana.  (Becky is a cake artist.  If you want to have your socks knocked off, definitely visit her website!)

The focal image is from the cut apart page of the collection.  Stitch onto green cardstock, then back with dimensionals to give it some extra depth and dimension.  Then add some Laserowe Love chipboards to really make it sing!  Man, I love these intricate chippies!  The piece on the top is not altered in any way.  That is how it comes out of the package.  The piece on the bottom is a 2-layer chip.  I heat embossed the little flowers with gold , then added teeny tiny pearls to the center of each flower.  You’ll find links below in the supply list.

Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio: A Peek Inside

The beauty of this collection cannot be overstated!  It is so warm and inviting to work with.  I just love it!

And there’s the tea party tucked inside the box pocket at the center of the folio.

I’ve added a decorated packet of Biscoff cookies, one of my treasured vintage silver plate spoons, and a little tea bag wallet.  There’s a small honey packet tucked inside the tea wallet, too.

Prima Fruit Paradise Fall Pears Folio: The Flip Side

Flip the folio over, and look what you find: a lovely little photo album on the back side. There’s room for 4 photos here…and one more little surprise hidden on the last page.

It’s a double pocket with inserts and the sweetest little art tag!

I think this would make a lovely birthday or anniversary gift.  (First year is paper…so that would be perfect!)  And these images just make me swoon!  I’ve loaded this one up into my ETSY shop.

I hope I’ve shared some ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  Look for the linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Butterflies and Pears?!?! Yup that will do. Lovely folio Kathy. The pears are ripe now on the local trees and when I say local, that means just down the street. 😀 Not too many butterflies flying around anymore, sadly, it’s getting to be that time of year. Love the papers and the details. Cookies Kathy?? my goodness.

    I could sit and stare at this all day, Kathy! What a GORGEOUS card/album/gift! Sometime I look at these papers, and say ‘that’s nice’, and they when I see you use them, my thoughts turn to ‘wow, I need these!’. What wonderful details, too, especially loving that oversized stitching and the wonderful chippies! Amazing make, and it does not surprise me it was snatched from your shop’s shelves so quickly! Sending hugs!

    Your gingham flowers are so cute! I like how you used patterned paper for the flowers….

    Kathy, this folio is absolutely stunning! I LOVE pears, I really do. My grandmother had a huge pear tree and made preserves every year. This card makes me think of her. The flower arrangements and the little pear embellishments on the front are gorgeous. I really like the little gingham flowers for added pizzazz. All of those colors just blend so well and do make me think of fall! The inside is just as fantastic as ever! You always have such sweet treats for the palate AND the eyes! Thank you for sharing this beauty! Have a beautiful day! Hugs!
