To get started with this Autumn Folded Folio Tutorial, pick out some papers. In this case 12 x 12 Scrapbook paper was used. If you don’t have large sheets of paper, make your own, franken page style.
Taking two 12 X 12 inch one sided scrapbook paper, Linda trimmed 10 inch square, she then rotated the paper and cut two additional inches. She saved the 2 inch strips to use later in the project. Let your glue dry so that the paper will not rip when you go to fold it. Using the pumpkin chipboard piece from Autumn Chipboard Pieces, Linda used copper embossing powder, she then heat embossed the powder using her heat tool and used it as an embellishment.
Using a 4 x 8.5 inch green linen paper, then fold in half and distress the edges. Linda then took an additional 4 x 12 inch strip of paper and used the maple leaf stencil to stencil on the paper, then applied the fossilized amber, aged mahogany distress oxides to create the colorful Autumn Leaves.
The folded green linen paper was then sewn to the upper fold of the 4 x 12 inch strip. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you could use staples, or hand sew or even a small amount of glue.
Here you can see the back of the Pocket Journal Card has been stamped with the sunflower from the sunkissed cube stamp set in her shop. Adding a couple of stamped images helps dress up a plain piece of paper.
Using up those paper scraps, you can create all sorts of tags and journal cards, remember use what you have!
