I’m so excited to share a sneak peek of the class sample I’ll be teaching this fall at the Weekend of Workshops in St. Louis! 6×6 File Folder Mini w/ Pocket Folios & Drop Ins!
I was thrilled to get invited to be a part of this fun craft-class event. I’ve attended another event put on by the Weekend of Workshops coordinator Nancy Wethington as a crafter and had such a great time. So it is doubly exciting to attend now as a guest instructor!
I miss getting to teach classes in person, so for this class project i wanted to create something really special. I decided straight off that I needed a really fun, cheerful, beautiful collection. One of the other instructors will be teaching a Graphic 45 collection project, so I immediately turned to Stamperia and their absolutely adorable Patchwork collection.
Then it was time to sit down and sketch out the project. My File Folder Minis and File Folder Folios have been so popular, I decided to do a fresh take on that with a brand new size. I love this little 6×6 File Folder Mini with a super chunky spine!
But why stop there? The most popular thing I’ve created since launching MiniBooksRMe 16 months ago, has been my series of Drop Ins. I love these fun little elements, created entirely as separate little units, then simply attached to any album page to add interactive fun. So, I designed two brand new Drop Ins for this mini!
And of course, there are other fun tags and folders tucked inside, too!
But wait! There’s more! (I know! But this paper collection was so darn cute, i couldn’t help myself!) This year I’ve launched a new, limited edition series of Pocket Folios projects and the response to the first release has been AH-mazing! So hey, why not include two brand new Pocket Folios, too? (I told you, this little mini is JAM-packed!)
The basic album design is also a fun, flexible, super functional little mini. In addition to the fun, 1/4″ deep pockets inside the front and back cover, there are two triple-pocket pages included as well.
So many fun little closures and other techniques!
The class kit for this project will be pre-cut for you. We will have a day long seminar together (with a break for lunch) to build this entire foundation.
Drop Ins 1 & 2
All of the pattern and cardstock mats needed to decorate this entire mini, along with all the embellishments, charms, and hardware will also be included. The pattern/cardstock mats will also be pre-cut and stacked/packaged in order of use, so decorating will be a breeze.
My Class Kit will also come with detailed, color photo, step-by-step instructions on how to build the foundation and decorate the mini. So you’ll be all set whether you are a fast-paced maker or a slower-paced, more methodical one. There is cropping time scheduled into the weekend as well, so you’ll have time to fully decorate the mini while you are there. I’ll be there the entire weekend also, and the class sample will be on hand, too.
Every student also receives a full Cutting Guide, just like with my regular tutorials, so you can make this project again (and again!) using your own materials and paper selections. All matting sizes are included, both foundation and decor.
Here is a full video walk-through of the finished project:
