Step 1
Cut a 3" x 9" piece of AG1157 Green Pattern. Adhere the smallest strip of chipboard to the back side of this sheet, centering it both lengthwise and widthwise. This strip will create the spine of the folder.
Adhere two sheets of 6" x 8" chipboard to the right and left of the strip of chipboard on the AG1157 (Green Pattern); use the remaining piece of chipboard to space the front and back panels from the spine before adhering it. This will give the folder room to open and close. Fold the top and bottom flaps of AG1157 (Green Pattern) over the chipboard and adhere them.
Use your finger or a bone folder to carefully smooth the gaps and adhere the paper.
Step 2
Cut two 6" x 9" pieces of AG1154 (Roses). Adhere these to the outside of the folder on the front and back covers, leaving 1/2" overhanging and allowing it to overlap the AG1157 (Green Pattern) spine paper as needed
. Cut away the excess from the corners, being careful not to cut too closely to the corner of the chipboard exposing the chipboard when the paper is adhered. Adhere the overhanging paper over the edge and to the interior of the folder.
Step 3
Cut two 2 1/2" x 6" pieces of AG1158 (Gold Floral), two 1 1/2" x 6" pieces of AG1157 (Green Pattern) and two 1 1/4" x 6" pieces of AG1163 (Pink Floral). Layer each pink strip onto a green strip and then each of these onto the gold strips.
These strips are adhered to the covers of the book, with one short edge butted against the green spine and the other wrapped around the edge to the underside of the covers
Step 4
Cut an 8" x 12" piece of AG1154 (Roses). Adhere this to the inside of the folder, beginning at the front cover's inside edge and smoothing is across the inside of the folder. Smooth it carefully into the creases and be sure that the paper is adhered smoothly even when the folder is covered. Don't worry that the paper won't reach all the way across the folder. That area will be hidden by the frame.
Step 5
Take the remaining piece of chipboard and trim about 1/8" off from one long side; after this, that piece will measure 5 7/8" x 8".
Then, measure and mark 3/4" in from each side of the chipboard. Cut out the center of the chipboard at each mark, leaving a 3/4" wide frame of chipboard. Cut a 9" x 7" piece of AG1157 (Green Pattern).
Adhere the frame to the reverse of this sheet. Fold the edges over and adhere, removing the extra paper from the corners as you did for the folder cover. For the inside of the frame, simply cut out the paper in the rectangular opening. This leaves an exposed edge, but will be covered in the next step.
Step 6
Cut the central from a sheet of AG1160 (Wedding Frame). Do this by cutting 5/8" from the outside edge of the printed frame at its top, bottom and sides. Cut out the inside of the frame, leaving an opening. Adhere this frame to the center of the chipboard frame.
Step 7
Adhere the frame to the inside right hand cover of the folder, using thin foam adhesive. Be sure to leave the top edge open for the photo to be inserted later.
Step 8
Apply the rub on "love always" to ivory cardstock. Trim the cardstock to 5/8" x 3". Mat it with a 3/4" x 3 1/8" piece of AG1157 (Green Pattern). Adhere to the bottom center of the frame.
Step 9
Apply the rub on "The Happy Couple" to ivory cardstock. Trim the cardstock to 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Mat it with a 3 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of AG1158 (Gold) and adhere to the inside cover of the folder.
Step 10
Wrap Ivory ribbon around photo holder so that it is centered in the middle of the AG1163 (Pink Floral) strip. Adhere. Tie a knot at each end.
Step 11
Apply the rub on "A Fairy Tale Romance" to ivory cardstock. Trim the cardstock to 3 1/2" x 2 1/4". Adhere to the center front of the folder with foam adhesive.
