This is very beautiful! I love the colors! I was actually looking for instructions on how to make this very thing - do you think you could share your template/instructions with me? I am having a stamp club on the 31st and we are making the stationary and envelopes. This would be perfect! Thanks for posting your gorgeous work!

Hi! Thank you for the compliments; Kim S. from SURAS is the one who sent me a stationery folder. I merely CASED her folder concept and decorated it as I wished. I'll try to explain without pictures. . . and if I'm unclear, I'll try to take some pix. First, get the school portfolio folders--just folders, no little metal parts in the spine. Now unfold the folder and fold it in the opposite direction in half lengthwise. Open it back up and fold back to the original fold. Now starting at your new fold line, cut up at an angle to make envelope flaps. Open it back up, and fold so that those two flaps cover the folder's pockets. You can put wheeled envelopes in one pocket and wheeled stationery in the other pocket. Decorate your cover and tie it shut. (As I read this, it is MUCH simpler than it sounds!) Let me know if it doesn't make sense. [email protected] Thanks! Debbie
