Hello Happy Crafters!
It’s an exciting day for me and I’m so happy to share it with you. I’ve always wanted to audition to be a Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador and I’m finally DOING IT!
The project I’m sharing with you today is the Graphic 45 “Blooming Tags” File Folder Notebook using Eileen Hull’s Journal die, three file folders, Graphic 45’s ivory tags, and their gorgeous new Bloom collection!
Check out my video audition below!
I’ll take you on a walk-through of the project then you’ll get a bonus tutorial (I know!) I’ll teach you how to assemble the cover, including stringing the notebook and attaching the pockets. Then you’ll learn how to make one complete “tag folio” foundation.
All the mat sizes are mentioned in the video, but they are also listed below.
2 sheets Sizzix “Little Sizzles” 6″ x 13″ White Matboard
3 Letter Size Manila File Folders (1 top, 1 middle, 1 bottom tab)
