Oh, yes it does.
See this folder?It is full of ephemera waiting to get scrapped. I talked a bit about this system, or lack thereof, on an older episode of PRT. There are lots of pocket folders. They are FULL. VERY FULL.
I suppose I ought to make a dent into some of that?
First up - some Disney goodness. Actually, the menu from our lunch with the Princesses, to be exact.The menu itself is too long to fit on a 12x12. It really won't look good oriented another way and I don't want to cut it up. Oh goodness...
So, it gets folded at the bottom:
I am thinking this can be a little interactive page element. See? A little washi on the left side there will create a hinge...
And there it is opened:
And with the flap folded in:
And all closed up again:
Time for the photos! I have trimmed them down to about 4x4, so that they will fit nicely under my menu flap:
Now for a little embellishment. This Dear Lizzy paper should do the trick. Lots of fun little chevron/arrow type shapes to cut out...
And this is how we are looking with the flap closed:
That works for me! Now, it's time to embellish the top of the menu. I really just want to add some texture and interest, but don't want to cover up the lovely couple or detract too much from them. So, I have grabbed a little Color Pop Tag, a standard tag, and some embroidery thread:Oh yes! Now we are talking!
OK! Back to the inside. I want this element that was on the paper already to be part of the title. My photo covered up a bit of the "L" - but a quick little pen work action fixes that right up:
And there's the rest of the title:
Then, I just finished some embellishing with a bit of mist and some wood hearts...
That actually worked out better than I expected. Hooray!
I wasn't too sure how to incorporate this bright and busy menu, along with my photos, and some pretty paper too. Turns out a little interactive element was all I needed.So fun!
Wondering how this works in my page protector?
I just cut a slit around the menu and the flap opens right up - easy peasy!
Alright. Now... time to sort out the rest of those papers in my ephemera folder...
Wish me luck!
