Simple Stories Plaid Dad Folio

Simple Stories Plaid Dad Folio

Hello everyone! I have a quick little project to share with you today. I received a sample of the Simple Stories Plaid Dad collection. The sample was only three sheets of the 12×12.
I saw a really cute tutorial on the Everything Authentique Facebook page and I thought it would be the perfect project. In the tutorial they used a graduation themed papers but I wanted to create a Fathers Day version. Its a small little folio created from cardstock.

I double matted the project using black cardstock for the base and then added a layer of gray cardstock. It has a magnet closure on the front. I created a pocket with one of the cut parts and add a couple of tags with some cute brads that resemble screws.

When opened up all of the way there are pockets on the left side and a waterfall in the center.

The waterfall has a magnet attached to the back so it can be removed. I used the cute plaid shirt paper as a fun surprise once the waterfall is removed.

I didn’t have a lot of paper left so I did some random blocking of papers to add to the back of the folio.

This was a really cute project and came together really quick! Sending this to my Father in Law for Fathers Day! I love the fun saying, “Sawdust is Man Glitter”.
Have a great week and checkout the fun tutorial over on the Everything Authentique Facebook page.

  1. Wonderful project. I made the base last night, haven’t applied paper yet. It was so quick & easy. It will be great for left overs or 6 x 6 paper. Great project as always. Thank you.

  2. Can you share a link to the tutorial, or what it’s called exactly? I looked at Authentique Paper and Everything Authentique, but don’t find it.

  3. OMG I just got this paper collection last week. It’s sooo cute! Luv this little project. Can’t wait to try it out. Thanks Ginger!

  4. Ginger,
    Thank you again for the inspiration. I was able to make 2 for Father’s Day with some masculine paper in my stash.
    God bless,
