SU185 Padfolio

These instructions were given to us by Marian back in 2001 but I do not have her last name marked anywhere. If you are out there Marian, please let me know and I will add your last name. We are leaving for Salmon Arm, BC on Nov 25th (this post is delayed until December 2, 2009). I'm hoping to meet a few stampers along the way. I have made up a few of these to give as gifties to the friends that I have never met except via the internet. I hope they enjoy them.

Place a sheet of 81/2" x 11" cardstock in front of you with the 81/2" on the right and left for the directions.

From the left side, mark a score line at 5/8", 7/8" and 6". From the top right corner, mark down to 31/2" and up to the 6" score line. Cut this away. You can cut this on a curve or straight, whatever you want. Score at ½" at the bottom, right across the 11". Cut away the ½" up to the 6" score line only.

Fold all the score lines to the inside or wrong side. I splattered the front with navy acrylic ink. When dry, glue the 5/8" lip on to the back of a 5" x 8" writing tablet. Fold the last piece to the inside to form a pocket for important papers. Glue the bottom 1/2" to the pocket.
For some reason, the next photo did not listen to me when I asked it to rotate so you have to look at it sideways! I've added a 'business card' holder using photo corners and you can see I have a card tucked in the pocket.

Now you are ready to stamp and decorate the front. I used:

Stamp Sets - Inspired by Nature, Riveting.

Cardstock - White, Night of Navy, Old Olive.

Inks - Night of Navy, Old Olive, Navy acrylic for splattering.

Accessories - 11/4" circle punch, 13/8" circle punch, ticket punch, silver brad, sponge, mount, toothbrush to splatter.
The last photo is the back of the padfolio. You can see that the 5/8" lip is all that gets glued to the writing tablet.
