This took a very long time to put together. The concept is from a class I took at the Scrapbook Expo. It uses an office file folder (purple) layering on Basic Grey paper, SU stamps, hardware, and tag, rub-ons, tags, 7 Gypsies ribbon and tag. I actually made the long envelope on the last page of the folder by using the one from class as an example. The little file folder on the 3rd page was cut using a Coluzzle template. I made the HB letters on the front tag by first stamping them onto light cardboard, cutting them out, inking up the edges and then putting many layers of clear EP on them.
What I totally like about this is that the ribbon wraps around the folder and is attached simply by adhering a magnet strip under the paper on the front & another magnet strip to the back of the flower (collage explosion as it was called in class.) Now I have just 3 others that I started and need to complete.
