Authentique Clover Folio Tutorial Inserts and Pockets by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

Sometimes, I can’t believe how much I manage to pack into one of these little folios.  The tutorial will guide you through creating the pocket, the insert and the little tea bag wallet.  You’ll have to provide the Soda Bread recipe yourself.

Saint Patrick’s Day Trifold Shaker Folio Tutorial Video

NOTE:  I need to add a correction to this video tutorial.  In a sleep deprived state, I provided the wrong measurements for the Green Thumb Spectrum liner panels.  The correct measurements are 5 3/8″ x 5 3/8″ for the square panels.  The “short” panel should measure 4 5/8″ x 5 3/8″.  So sorry for any frustration or confusion this error might have caused.  Never create a video tutorial when you are tired!  Lesson learned.  Thanks for your gracious understanding.

Are you ready to get your craft on?  Just press play!

    Hwy Kathy – this is beyond adorable. Immediately pulled out by St. Patrick’s Day stash and set about making one. Not sure where I went wrong but ended up with five and half inch square. Panels making the first layer of paper (where yo put the Authentique Spectrum Green Thumbs) five and three eighths, not four and seventh eights sqare
    Have adjusted and am half way through but just wondering if I went wrong along the the way the whole folio comes together…as always, brilliant

    Kathy, what a darling folio! Green is my favorite color and all shades of it! And what a great collection of paper for St. Patrick’s day from Authentique! They never fail do they? Those shaker elements are beautiful and so are all of the images. I especially love the little lass in the inside left pocket. How adorable they all are! Your pattern combos are gorgeous, as always and a recipe to top it all off! Fantastic! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!
