Time for another fab DT Thursday tutorial from Sandiebella!
File Folder Pocket Card
Fold the card and crease well.
Cover the front of the file folder with patterned paper.
On the inside front, measure and mark with a pencil at 0.25″ and 2.25″ on the left hand side.
Repeat on the opposite end on the back of the file folder.
Cut away the sections either side of the pencil marks, going 0.5″ in. You will be left with a 2″ x 0.5″ tab as shown. Repeat for the back.
I covered the inside back at this point, and cut away the excess, but you can cover it before making the tabs if desired. Taper the edges of the tabs.
Set aside for now.
Stamp the smaller Fairy Tale Squidies onto white card.
Colour with your desired medium.
Cut the image out using a stitched circle die, and also cut a larger scalloped circle die to matt the image onto.
Wrap some ribbon around the folder front and tie a bow towards the right hand side.
Apply narrow double sided tape to the inside of the front and adhere to the back to make a pocket.
Cut a piece of white card measuring 4.5″ x 3.75″ and round the corners. Cut a strip of paper approx 1″ x 4.5″ and round the corners on one side. Adhere to the top of the white card panel.
Stamp the Fairy Tale Squidgies sentiment into the centre.
Take the image mounted on the scalloped circle and apply foam tape to the back.
Adhere to the front of the file folder
Slip the note card in and out of the pocket repeatedly to loosen the pocket a little, if you need to.
Apply some stardust Stickles to the fabric of the cone hat.
Finish by adding some enamel dots on the image and in the centre of the ribbon bow .
