Start to decorated finish in 2 hours . . .

When I told Gina, owner of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, that I would like a portfolio, she was on it like butter on bread. And, of course, came up with something that was so easy and fun to put together.

As you can see from the photo below, the pre-cut, pre-scored folio is quite wide, measuring 22" wide X 9" tall and is available in either black or kraft cardstock. When folded, there is a 1/2" depth to the portfolio.

Looking at the photo above, the far right side will form a 1/2" deep pocket. Fold on the top and bottom score marks and add adhesive. Fold over onto the panel to create a deep pocket.

Once the pocket is created, you can attach the included belly band to the full left panel.

Included with this folio kit is a mini-book to tuck into the dimensional pocket.

Have fun decorating with your own paper. Each time I do one of these and paper it with a different style, the entire booklet looks so unique.

Here are a few I've done so far:

This one uses some embellishments from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts:

For this one I attached the belly band on the cover and added a card underneath.

For a bit of cuteness use brightly colored papers:

For breakfast with Santa or a visit to Santa photos, try one with Christmas paper:

So fun & easy to do. These would make great Christmas gifts, hostess gifts or even a quick recipe book.

Want some of your own? Folios are now available here!
