Make & Take Tuesday: March Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial
Hello, Friends! It’s time to share this March Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial for this week’s Make & Take Tuesday episode. This is the second tutorial in this year-long series. You can find the January and February Gnome of the Month tutorials HERE.
How cute is this Gnome Leprechaun? (Lepregnome? Gnomechaun? Hmmmm…) Bold shades of green, orange and white make this folio stand out from the crowd.
Somewhere along the line, I nabbed this green jeweled ladybug charm. I could not resist adding it to the charm cluster along with the flower and shamrock charms.
Paint a Tim Holtz wooden frame with ivory chalk paint. Then back it with clear cardstock, foam strips and fill it with magically delicious shaker elements to make a festive shaker frame for the cover. I think the top hat and shamrock button add a lovely bit of flair to the design.
A Peek Inside
The format and design of the March folio follows the pattern for January and February. This makes it very quick and easy to put together with the March papers and stickers.
And seriously…I dare you not to smile at these winsome gnomes!
Pockets, pockets and more pockets create lots of room for mini folios and tags.
You’ll learn how to create all these fun elements in the video tutorial below.
