Hello! How are you? We are on vacation so today we will make a traveling folder. These are the materials. We need 3 pieces of cardstock from the following measurements. Take the first piece and score at 4″ inches, Take the second one and scored at 1/2″ and 6″ inches, Take the third one and score at 1/2″ If you don’t have a scoring board, you can measure, make a mark on top and bottom and draw a line with a rounded tip object. Fold the score lines. Apply glue on the flap of the first piece. Put the flap of the second piece on top. Be careful not to glue over the edge so it can bend. Put adhesive on the flap of the third piece and likewise, the flap of the second piece is on top. The base is ready. You can also make it from cardboard for greater firmness. Now we need two pieces of these measurements. From side of 4 3/4″ score at 4 1/4″ on both pieces. Fold them. We cut the corners of the tabs diagonally. I rounded the corners but you can leave them that way. Glue them on the right section. One on the top and one on the bottom aligning the edges. We also need 2 pieces in these measurements. Take the longest piece and horizontally score every 1/2″ until counting three on both ends. Score the next piece at 1/2″ inch, vertically. Take the longest piece again and start folding in form of an accordion, The first backward, the second forward and the third backwards. We will have something like this. Fold the flap of the other piece, Put adhesive on the flap and stick it on the left edge, This is the flap to close the pocket. For the other piece we will need a strip of one inch or you can leave of 2 centimeters wide and a few millimeters long. Fold it in half. Apply the adhesive. Take care not to do it over the folds. This is how it looks Keep it aside, we will paste it later. We will make another pocket so we need this piece. I also have two other strips to attach that piece to the base. Same as we did with the previous pocket. Before assembling the pocket verify that fits, if not just cut the length a bit. I cut a half circle but it is not necessary. Cut the corners of the strips diagonally and started to paste them to form the pocket. Put adhesive on the flaps and glue to the base. To make the central pocket we need the next piece with strips of cardstock folded in half. Make the same procedure as with the previous pocket and we take care of do not do it over the folds. This pocket is to place a small notebook, I just cut printer sheets and one piece of cardstock of the same size for the back and fastened with staples. Returning to the left pocket we will put brads for the closing, I have these little ones but they can be bigger. Do a hole in the flap and another in the pocket. I use this eraser as support. When placing the brad do not do it with much pressure, leave a space between the little button and the cardstock because we are going to entangle the cord. As we did in the video of the elastic closures. Stick a piece of cardstock in the back to cover the clasp and prevent it from moving. Now we can stick it to the base remember not to do it on the fold. Do the same thing on the flap. If you use velcro it is faster. Place a thin cord and hold it with a knot, pass it by the brad below, return and cut the excess. Do not forget to stick paper or decorated paper on the back of the flap. Also place brads to close the right section. Hold the brad with cardstock and on top place pattern paper. I’m going to add a plastic pocket and hold it with washi tape. You can use acetate but is not necessary. I add a cover to my notebook. I made a score line at half an inch where I placed the glue to cover the staples. The closing of the folder will also be with brads, I could not put them directly in the folder so I looked for cards to hook them. You can use elastic ribbon if you prefer. Here it is finished I also pasted decorated paper on the spines to make them more resistant. Flat decoration to apply a couple of layers of decoupage glue to protect it. I put two corners. I just cut a rectangle from corner to corner and glued on two sides strips folded in half to form pockets and place postcards. In the left pocket you can place tickets, receipts… I leave the notebook simple. The pattern paper of the flaps is glued on three sides to put cards or coupons. In the plastic pocket we can put an identification. The decorated paper is another pocket because I only glued on three sides. In the largest pocket we can place maps or we can put it in the pocket of the notebook. We can also keep the passport. I hope this video inspire you.
