Wisteria Bloomin Treasures Colouring Storage Folder

Lately my "mojo" has been MIA.  Don't you just hate when that happens!  The trash bin saw more than it's fare share of colouring.  Then while looking for file storage online one night, up pops a tutorial to make your own!  Mojo is peeking over my shoulder ... I have the perfect paper in mind ... who would have thought a file storage search would restore creative harmony! 
I am using Wisteria Bloomin Treasures by artist Heather Valentin.  She is one of the lovely digi's from the Lacy Sunshine Blommin Treasures Coloring Page.  Of course she didn't want to be by herself so her friend, Plum Blossom Flower of Peace, from the same colouring page is also here today. You can find them at the Lacy Sunshine Shoppe

Now I have a special place for all my coloured LS stamps that is portable and pretty to look at!

 Wisteria Bloomin Treasures - Colouring Storage Folder

A ribbon holds the folder closed making it easier to adjust as the folder expands

With the addition of a clear pocket, made using transparency film, there is a place for WIP colourings like Plum Blossom Flower of Peace Bloomin Treasure

I had full intentions of taking photo's and adding instructions as the project progressed  but was so engrossed that I forgot and only have 2 WIP pictures to show you. There is a link to the tutorial at the end of this blog.

Things adjusted to suit my needs: 
  1. added the clear "pocket" on the back using a transparency
  2. added 2 additional score lines to the top flap for easier closing adjustments
  3. used a heavier patterned card stock instead of covering the front and back pieces
  4. score tape was used instead of glue

Thanks to Pion Designs for the tutorial
