To make a Scrappin' Folder, you cover the outside of one folder with paper and the inside of the other. You decorate each. I add a couple of pockets to the inside – one for a photo CD and one for a small book I make by just folding 12” x 12” paper to make a book with 4” x 6” pages. You then glue the folders together at the bottom using a permanent and strong glue. Using Wonder Tape you affix the sides, leaving a pocket on the front and back. I make a file folder for each of these pockets.
If you prefer, I’m teaching a class at Scrapbooks Plus on January 12th from 11:00 – 4:00pm. In one afternoon, you’ll make a Scrappin’ Folder for either your Thanksgiving or Christmas memories. In this class, you’ll learn how to make such a folder with just a few supplies. You’ll use lots of tools and techniques, including the Tim Holtz Vagabond and dies, Martha Stewart Scoring Board, inks, punches, magnets.
And you’ll leave with either a Thanksgiving or Christmas Scrappin’ Folder. With your class fee, you’ll get a full Collection Kit (either Autumn Lane or Handmade Holidays), extra paper and instructions. A sample of each is on display at the store so let us know which one you want when you sign up. You’ll just need to bring basic tools, a paint brush and a variety of adhesives.
