Gathering together scraps of paper, gel prints, rubber stamps to create the pages of the folio and then distressing w the page pieces with a blending tool and walnut stain distress oxide ink. This could also be considered a Frankenpage style folio. Make sure that you create enough pockets to add all of your element pieces in.
You may want to add fabric scraps for decoration on your pockets. Linda chose to sew, however if you don’t sew just make sure to use plenty of Aleene’s tacky glue.
Using the left over papers scraps after the pages were glued together on 12 x 12 inch chipboard. Linda trimmed one inch and scored to make the chipboard easier to fold. Because of the trimming you will find a gap, simply use another piece of scrap paper. Linda chose fabric pieces to sew together for her cover, and to make it unique sewed all the way around the edge, as well as the glued paper pieces.
Taking a digital journal card from the Artful Journal Kit, Linda then creates a matting, and she adds a decorative fabric ruffle. Going back to the sewing machine she adds a long strip of fabric that will be tied together for the closure.
The next step is to bind the pages, using waxed linen thread with a template for the holes, Linda used a Tonic Studio craft pick. She demonstrates how to do complete the pamphlet binding stitch using a book binding needle.
To complete the folio journal, Linda adds the items created from the 12 days and a few other elements such as journal cards and note pad pieces for extra writing space with belly bands to hold everything in this very fluffy folio journal.
Using the flowering branch stamp on the blank pages and stamping with jet black archival ink. Adding stamps to blank pages is an quick and easy way to add a decorative touch.
In the pocket below, you can see from Day 7 the Holiday Tags that Linda created. She added some note pad paper for extra writing space and put in the double pocket.
Add belly bands to slip extra journaling cards in with altered paperclips to hold the extra journaling space.
Tucked in the corner pocket are the Holiday cards from the Day 10 tutorial.
The Tuck Corner from Day 9 holds some note pages and this corner hugger is removable.
Another the embellished journal card from Day 8 Pop Up card tutorial in a belly band.
As an added surprise to whoever you will give your folio to, add a gift card from Day 11 Gift Card holder tutorial.
