A Decorative Folio

Hello everyone & welcome
Today I would like to share with you a decorative folio that I have created. This would make a lovely gift and could be used for writing or drawing.

The outer cover is made from chipboard, and has been covered with patterned paper and pieces from  cut & create sheets which are available from Meg's Garden online store.

The cover has also been embellished with die cut shapes, ribbon, lace, cheesecloth, a button & metal charm, seed beads, paper flowers, self-adhesive pearls as well as punched out paper shapes. There is lots of paper distressing using a paper distressing tool. I have inked the edges of the patterned papers with distress ink called walnut stain & Inka Gold: Gold was used on the edges of the chipboard cover for a touch of elegance.  

Inside the cover there is a tea-stained envelope that has been embellished with a paper doily, lace, die cut & punched out shapes as well as pieces from the cut & create sheets.

With some handmade paper ready for writing or drawing this whole bundle of paper can be easily removed or individual sheets can be removed one at a time.

A decorated card with a tuck & a tag sit happily inside the envelope.

The back cover of the folio.

I hope I have inspired you to give this project a go.

Until next time.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day & happy creating.
