Folio Gift Idea with the Forever Fern Set

Today’s folio makes for a great Gift Idea with the Forever Fern Set! This project is one of a set of 3 folios shared a few week ago.

In my recent Facebook Live event, I showed how to make three different folios. I shared the first folio in my post on 7/25/20. The details for the second folio are in my 7/31/20 post and today I’m featuring the details of my last and final folio which is also a great gift idea with the Forever Fern Set

Today’s folio is the largest capacity folio and it also includes a fun technique with acrylic blocks that I shared some weeks back. This large capacity folio fits about 5 cards and envelopes and is shown in the upper right hand corner of the photo below.

This third folio is the same basic construction as the second folio except the scoring dimensions makes it fatter therefore it can hold more!

Here’s a view of the spines of these three folios. The spine widths are ⅜”, ½” and ¾”. The bigger the spine width, the greater the capacity of the folio.

I’ve used watercolor paper for the focal piece. A “D” size acrylic block was used with Seaside Spray, Mint Macaron, and Soft Sea Foam ink, to create the background.
