A week or so ago I participated in a Fall Bazaar at my hair dresser's salon in Buda - Sapphire Salon. I had made an adorable memo pad folder from a Stampin' Up! decorated file folder.
Inside is a mini legal pad and a pocket for coupons, etc.
A couple of the girls loved it but wanted to know if they could order custom designs, specifically a pink & black one (no biggie) and a zebra print one (umm, sure?). I agreed and off I went in search of a zebra print file folder. Let me tell you, they are not easy to come by locally!
So I decided to try to wrap a standard file folder in decorative paper and Modge Podge it. (That's a decorative glue that dries hard and clear.) I started with the pink and black folder.
As you can see, things didn't go so well. The paper had bubbles under it that just wouldn't smooth out with the Modge Podge. "I know! I'll put Crystal Effects (a really hard super glossy drying glue from Stampin' Up!) on it." Well, apparently when you apply Crystal Effects over a large flexible surface this happens.
I used the same embossing technique on the paper inside the matching pen.
I bought them just on principal.
We’re still here!
