Mother’s Day Tea Party in a Box Folio Tutorial Part 2 with Reneabouquets & G45 Cottage Life
Hello, Friends! Are you ready for Part 2 of our Mother’s Day Tea Party in a Box Folio Tutorial? I’ve been a busy bee in the studio getting the remainder of this project finished for you. Some of you have contacted me already with ways that you plan to use this folio for upcoming special occasions. That makes my heart so happy! I love it when you share your memories and crafty adventures with me.
Here’s our finished project, and I have to say, I love the way it turned out. It’s perfectly vintage and beautifully feminine. My mom loved her flower gardens, and this precious image makes me think of her. Mom also loved all the wee birds, so I was thrilled to find this gorgeous Printed Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets in my stash.
Butterflies? Yup, mom loved those too, and of course I had to use a pink one. The ribbon closure and bow are also pink, because Mom loved pink in all its various shades.
Did you guess that I would created a dangle charm for the spine? Well, you were 100% correct! This one features a golden bumblebee, flying swallow, text token, daisy, and a darling little bird nest. You can learn how to add it to your folio in today’s video tutorial.
A Peek Inside
If you missed the first part of this tutorial, you can find it HERE. Part 1 covers building the folio base, adding the liner papers, creating the slash pocket, box pocket, and decorating the flap pages.
Today we’ll finish the folio. First, we’ll finish the final flap page with a little pocket, a bookmark and a magnet. Next, I’ll talk with you about how I “gift wrap” the goodies that fit in the box pocket. Then, we will finish out the decoration on the slash pocket and talk about how easy it is to create a belly band.
Next on our crafty adventure, we’ll add the ribbon closure, create the spine, and the dangle charm. And last, but not least, we’ll create the cover for the folio.
I hope you’ll join me as I share Part 2 of this Mother’s Day Tea Party in a Box Folio Tutorial over on my YouTube channel.
Mother’s Day kind of sneaked up on me this year, and I know we are cutting it close with this project. But maybe you can lock yourself up in your studio this weekend and get this project ready in time. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did.
