That's all it takes to construct one of
Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Wallet Style Folio.
Once you receive your chipboard kit
you'll see that each piece is pre-scored.
Fold the score lines as shown in the photos below.
The long piece is the center piece with a side pocket on the far left. Both sides fold in towards the center.
The top piece folds down and the bottom piece folds up & has a side pocket. But I'm getting ahead of myself a bit.
First, please notice that both the top and bottom pieces have 1/2" seam. Take the top piece and apply glue to the 1/2" seam and glue that seam to the outside center portion of the book (the middle piece shown in the first photo above). BIG TIP: Do not glue over score marks.
Repeat this step with the bottom piece, applying glue to the 1/2" seam and then gluing the seam to the bottom outside center section.
Your book should look like this:
Notice that you can still see all the score marks on the two pieces just attached. If you can't see the score marks the folio won't close. Note: Those wings on the left center and bottom will be pockets after we wallpaper the main pages.
I've decided to decorate this folio with Tim Holtz Christmas paper. IDEA: It would be great as a gift with kids' photos in it to give to a Grandma or an Aunt. Or maybe my daughter-in-law with her fur babies! (shhhh )
Here's a walk through of the entire folio:
