Good morning my friends and welcome back to the craft room. Today I want to share with you a File Folder Folio that I created. There have been a lot of folio tutorials online that have intrigued me. Part of the inspiration for today’s project comes from my favorite designer, Ginger of My Sisters Scrapper. Click the link above to check out her YouTube channel. I know you will be inspired too! Let me show you what I made.
File Folder Folio Covers
To create this folio I used a few simple supplies; two manilla file folders, coordinating card stock, and the Violet Leaf paper pack from Die Cuts With a View. This is a good paper to use for a soft cover folio like this since the paper is so thick, and it’s also really pretty! The finished folio measures 8 ½” x 6 ½” x ½”.
Inside The Folio
The little pocket shown below is left over from cutting the folder down to size. Just like Ginger, I utilized this as a pocket that has a finished measurement of 6 ¼” x 2”. The tags that are tucked inside are made with the largest Tag die from the Sizzix Framelits with Stamps set.
The pullout measures 8 3/8” x 11” and is scored at 6 1/8”. This is a perfect spot for larger photos. The inside of the pullout is plain so it would also be a great place for a longer bit of journaling.
The flap at the top of this page measures 6” x 6 ¼”. It also conceals a booklet that measures 7 ½” x 5 ½”.
Moving to the left side of the folio now, this flap measures 8 ½” x 6”. Underneath we have three stacked pockets that are 6 ¼” x 2 ½ “.
The three photo mats shown below measure 5 7/8” x 4 ½ “ and 5 7/8” x 6 ½ “and 5 7/8” x 7 ¾ “.
As with all projects, there are moments of regret and opportunities to do things differently. I would probably just make two pockets on the left side of the folio. If i kept the third pocket, that photo mat will need to be cut to 8” long. In any case, please join me next week when I share the tutorial for this fun little folio. Until then, have a fantastic week!
