Shabby Chic File Folder Mini Album

Hello friends of Meg's Garden! Today I have a file folder album to share with you, using the journal papers from the Watercolour Garden Collection. These papers have various beautiful prints, which you will see during this blog post. When I first viewed these papers I was going to create a planner or pages for a planner.....but then I came across these beautiful file folders and loved the concept more. There are several tutorials on Youtube at the moment but the one I liked the most is found here.

I really wanted to showcase the papers in this album, so the pages are very simple. I utilised the ephemera to create journalling spots. Left over manilla card was used to create tags and flips in the album.

I used my We 'R Memories Keepers envelope punch board to create tabs in the album, to define each section of the album.

Extra pockets enable spaces for mini books, tags and other photos.

Adding lace, ribbon and washi tape adds to shabby chic/vintage feel.

Enjoy the video below of the walk through of the completed album.
