A DIY Folder With The G45 Floral Shoppe + Tutorial

Hello-hello!

A new project for the Graphic 45 design team is ready to be shared and it is not a box :) Can you believe that?! It is a folder, which I created to keep track of my receipts and crafty expenses.

I've used the beautiful Floral Shoppe Collection by Graphic 45 to finish it off, as well as some other products from the same brand (the links will appear in this post below).

The tutorial link will appear below as well, so please scroll down :)



I've used the Floral Shoppe chipboard pieces on the folder's cover:



The folder is kept closed with an elastic string, but this type of closure can allow using twine or any other non-stretch cord too:


To make it more diverse and functional, I've added pockets on the folder's panels:




The folder holds a letter pad and a pair of G45 policy envelopes:




I've used a new G45 metal die for cutting out this filigree clock. It is truly gorgeous!
***Although, bare in mind that you will need a glue bottle with a precision tip applicator for sticking the die-cut shape to your project. The clock is super detailed and delicate. 


At the picture below you can see the folder with the flaps open to both sides, reveling the beautiful paper designs:


Besides the Graphic 45 products, I've used decorative chipboard from Studio Prosto Nebo:

       

And some La-La Land Crafts Dies too:

   

Graphic 45 products used:

I'm grateful for your visit! Have a great day!

  2. Where did you find the elastic band you used for the closure? This is such a nice piece.

    1. Hello Linda. Thanks for the comment.
      About the elastic - a price tag was tied with it to a pair of kids' shoes that I bought. You can also find it on price tags of some clothes, and of course it is also available for sale separately. I guess Jo-Ann, Hobby Lobby and Michael's should have it.

  7. A lovely tutorial, thanks. What black card stock did you use for the outer cover? It looked to be longer than the usual 12”?

    1. Hi Fiona. I am using the AC Heavyweight textured black cardstock. The long piece indeed is longer than 12", it is 17 1/4" X 6". I have added extra piece to the 12X6" strip, in order to get the needed length.
