That's it. I LOVE how the folios look. Am working on mine right now, a large one. I think I'm going to put my writing stuff in it. Right now, I'm having fun working on the cover. I'll post pictures when I'm done.

Happy crafting!

Do you have a tutorial on how to do this folio? Would love to make one for my grandkids!

I don't have a tutorial....I kinda make up as I go along. LOL But what I do is get the idea of what I want, then do my measuring and cutting first, then distressing the edges...laying it all out, sometimes taking pictures so I can remember what I want, then start assembling. With these, starting with the cover was a must. :)
