As the Simple Stories Sn@p Life designs lead me towards a youthful design I decided to go with an organizer for my 14 year old daughter to keep all her movie tickets/notes/memorabilia in before she gets around to scrapbooking it.
Scoring Tool - Scor-Pal
Adhesive - Scor-Tape
Patterned Papers and accessories - Sn@p Studio
Ribbon and eyelets - Stash
First I started by creating 12 simple pockets (one for each month) from 6" square pieces of card stock. I scored each at 3" and burnished.
Then I cut the date tags from the patterned paper, each measuring 6" by 3"
Then I added Scor-Tape to the base of each month block.
I attached each month block to the inside of the back side of the pocket so you could see them when opened.
Then I added Scor-Tape to the back of each pocket (at the top of the pocket before the tab) so that I could attach the pocket together in a kind of accordian folder style)
I removed the tape lining and attached them together in order as you can see in the photo.
I then used Scor-Tape on the front and rear pockets to add the decorative front and back from the papers
Then I went "old school" and added 2 eyelets to both the front and back covers to allow me to add a ribbon closure to the organizer.
I added a sheer ribbon and tied it in a bow.
Next I created a base box to stand the organizer in so that all the things wouldn't fall out when it was opened.
This was simply a 12" square piece of coordinating patterned paper scored at 3" on all 4 sides.
I snipped each corner up one square and added Scor-Tape to the front side formed flaps to created the box.
Here you can see the base
I then added embellishments to the box and the organizer sits perfectly.
This is a super simple project and perfect for the teenage girl in your life :)
