Project - My Gift Du Jour
posted 01/24/04 at 08:09 AM
I made three of these for my sisters/mom at Christmas, but naturally was down to the wire getting them done and didn't scan. This time, this little card portfolio is for my friend who is having a birthday today. It's my “gift du jour” for the year and I will hopefully be improving on the design each time I make it! Basically I took some medium thick cardboard (like the stuff you get in your twopeas packages to support all the paper) and decopaged (sp?) the covers. All these coordinated lines work WONDERFULLY for this. I made the binding by placing a piece of thick double sided tape between to patterned papers. This way the portfolio can open multiple times and not fall a part…or at least I'm hoping. Personalized on the front and tied with gingham ribbon. Inside has little vellum pockets that hold cards and envies. And of course the cards themselves…scanned 4 of the 5. It's not all that fancy, but I think the whole package is just too darn cute. I have a hard time giving them away! Thanks for looking.
