Folder Mini Album

I was looking over some of the projects I have done in the past when I found this Folder Mini Album and thought I would share it.  Of course the paper I originally used is no longer in print,  but you could use some fall paper and make a really fun "thanksgiving" mini.

Legal size File Folder, 3 or 4 sheets of printed-paper, (I used Basic Grey, Sultry Collection). You will also need 3 or 4 colors of card Stock, liquid adhesive and the Score-Pal.

Begin by scoring the file folder in half.

Open the file folder and fold on the new scored line. Now score in half and each side in half again.

Open up and decorate the top section with paper and card stock. (This will be the inside of the pockets that will show.)

Turn the bottom up and decorate.

Open again and cut the pocket openings. Apply liquid glue on the scored areas (black lines) and fold up to form pockets.

Decorate both the front and backside of the folder by using punches, buttons and ribbon.

Make tags to fit inside the pockets and decorate them.

These little folder makes a great gift and you can do it for any occasion. They are heavy and will hold up very well.

I hope you all have a great Thanks Giving! Enjoy your week!
