Design Team Project #2 Featuring .... Wonderland






Hello everyone ... I'm back sharing my 2nd design team project showcasing the gorgeous papers from 7Dots Studio  "Wonderland" collection. In this project I have used "Mushroom & Smoke".

To make this tag file folder, simply take a 12x12 piece of cardstock, fold from the bottom to the desired depth of pocket you require (3inches in this project), score with a Bone Folder, I used a glue stick to adhere the pockets at either side then fold cardstock in half again scoring with a bone folder. I then embellished the folder with elements from the following .... Stickers 6x12, Stickers 12x12 & Elements 12x12. On the back of the folder I use a punch to cut out circles from the Quadrille paper, again adhering with a glue stick and outlining with a charcoal pencil.

I covered a large manilla tag using "Royal Garden" paper, using Texture Paste through a stencil and again highlighting with a charcoal pencil. The paper doilie has been sprayed with Adirondack Colour Wash Spray (Butterscotch & Sunset Orange).

I have one more project to share this week , so until then TFL. x

Great project Gillian, easy and fun to make no doubt. Like the tag specially! Texture paste is always such a great addition. I am intrigued about what a dry glue stick is??
