Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Christmas in July Kick Off! And thanks to fellow demonstrator Tanja Rath from Germany (I think) for sharing her inspiration! Her folder needed 12x12 cardstock and I modified it so we could use 8-1/2x11 cardstock ....which means you can make this with the coordinating Cardstock Pack...WOO HOO! Here's Tanja's link to her project.
This is Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper is PERFECT for a little mass producing. BIG benefits with this holiday paper pack - 24 sheets, 4 each of 6 double-sided designs which means you have plenty of LIKE cards and folders. A normal pack is 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 designers. NOTE - the paper is lighter weight than typical SU Designer Paper. Which I find nice for making envelopes too.
Video Tutorial up later today! Update! Here it is:
