Today's project is a "no-cut patterned paper folder" to hold birthday wishes and a gift card and features a full 12 x 12 sheet of the beautiful Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.
For details on how this "no-cut patterned paper folder" comes together, please check out Diane Barnes Color Me Happy Blog. Diane has very generously shared her tutorial and tips on making these folders. Make sure you leave her a comment if you plan on using her tutorial.
|The inside view of the no-cut patterned folder. Love it!|
|This view shows the inside of the folder with the two note cards removed. The pockets are perfect for holding a 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" note card. I add two of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers which are fast becoming "faves" to jazz up the inside a bit.|
|The two note cards contain the birthday greetings and a gift card can be attached to the back of either note card. "The Happiest of Birthdays To You" sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. I stamped the dotted triangle image from Eastern Beauty set in Fresh Fig ink in the corners of both note cards. I stamped the sentiment "enjoy today" from the Eastern Beauty set on the second note card, but it looked too plain so I stamped this fancy square image in Tranquil Tide over top of it. Again it looked too plain, so I stamped the scroll work image in the points of the square. What a difference that made and it was fun experimenting with some of the smaller stamps.|
