delays in tutorial posting



Having a little trouble posting my tutorial with photos, so will try a different method soon:

Update here is the link to my first ever Youtube video: its not perfect or even quite complete, but I have had so many visits to this post, there is obviously an interest! I plan to update the video over the holidays. Thanks for your interest



Materials:
  • chipboard
  • 1 sheet patterned paper
  • 10 envelopes
  • ribbon
  • double-sided tape
  • modpodge
  • stickers etc to personalise
Tuck the flap of each envelope to the inside. Then use a strip of double-sided tape in the centre of the envelope to adhere another envelope on top. Continue until you have a stack of all 10 envelopes. Make sure you only use adhesive down the centre of the envelopes or the organiser will not be able to expand. Finish up with a strip down centre of top and bottom envelope of stack.
Cover one side of both chipboard covers with the patterned paper, mitering the corners.
Add in a length of ribbon centred on the middle of the back cover.
Stick envelope stack to inside of back cover, then line up front cover and adhere.
Decorate the organiser to suit. The ribbon ties it closed when not in use. When I have it out (most of the time), I tie the ribbon loosely and pull the concertina out so the ribbon acts as a stabiliser.
I use one pocket for each colour group of scraps and it keeps it right at hand when I am creating.
Have fun

I actually prefer still photos for tutorials rather than videos. It is so much easier to read at my own pace, then go to the next photo and instruction.

I'll be back to see the tutorial!!
