Altered Manilla Folders




I mentioned a while back that I had started a project at craft club.  I have progressed this project enough to take some pics for you.  I will still be personalizing this with photos and journaling.  The project is made from two manilla folders cut and folded to make a three way holder of sorts.  I used paper from K & Company to cover all the visible folder pieces.  The chipboard accessories are from Oriental Trading Company.  I used acrylic paint on them and then adhered them to the folder.  The I applied Stampin' Up!s Crystal Effects to the chipboard which gives a great shiny look.  I embellished with some grosgrain ribbon and a liver heart charm.  Later I will add some photos of my kids to the photo inserts and journal a little of each of them on the back.  
I still haven't taken any photos of the Love Is... album, but I will get around to it eventually!
