My September Project for
A Concertina Envelope folder :D
I found a stash of DL envelopes that I have had since
WAAAAAY back, and was going to throw them into
the recycling bin as all the glue was perished...
but then I remembered a technique*also from WAAAAY back*
sorted them into sizes and....
glued them all together by their tabs.
They all fold neatly together leaving a tab/flap to use as a closure :D
Next to decorate *which also strengthens* by cutting
panels of patterned paper(by Brenda Pinnock), dipping them in
watery white acrylic and over-stamping each piece before gluing on.
I decided to match up the panels on the reverse...
and then coloured the visible edges of the envelopes
with a Cinnamon ProMarker...
I love the faded grunginess :)
Before adding paper to the closure tab I glued a piece
of cord in place to act as a fastener.
Just a few embellishments and it is ready to store
tall thin art pieces *which I now have to make, so win win!*
Enjoy :D XXX
