A Truly Scrumptious 'anything but a card' gift

The challenge on Truly Scrumptious is a great sketch......Simon Says wants 'Anything but a Card' and Creative Inspirations wants a gift......decided to combine them all to make a small gift for a cardmaking friend who's birthday's coming up soon.......she doesn't have many stamps....and always admires have made her a stamped images folder.......and I'll put some in there for her to complete the little pressie.

Made the folder using a piece of Core'dinations card 9 x 12" scored at 6" down and 6" across and then folded up to make the inner pockets.

Manga kid has been watercoloured......Core'dinations and DCWV card.......yet again my fave BG Lemonade papers........Flora Doodles tie dyed flowers.....PM jewels.......SU sentiment and punches.

On the inside I corner punched the edges and sealed at both sides and the middle with double sided tape.......a bit more BG Lemonade to decorate......Tesco paper ribbon.....and Stix magnets in each corner to close easily.....popped a couple of stamped images in.
Hopefully the weather's going to perk up.......very dull at we're off to a bbq when OH gets home from work shortly.
Have a great weekend everyone.
