My little Gems Organiser

Hiya Folks, how are you all today? It's been a mixed day here, but really cold, just wish the hot weather will appear!! Anyways, I've been keeping my busy with a few projects, this one I have made before for my stamps but needed to make another as you can't have too much storage!! Another handy little organiser to keep all my favourite gems and pearls that I use most often. Here is the finished result:-

Finished Organiser

The products I used for this is:-
Indigo Blu Flights of Fancy 6x6 Card in purple and brown
Indigo Blu Free stamp set from Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine
Indigo Blu Winter Dawn Gilding Flakes
Cinch Binding Wires
8 12x12 sheets of paper
Purple Glitter Letters
Little Birdie Boutique Elements Flowers
Ribbons and of course gems!
I first of all cut 2 pieces of greyboard measuring 6x6.These will be the covers. I used double sided tape and placed this round the edges of the boards, then applied the gilding flakes. Adding the lovely Indigo Blu card with my favourite colours and with butterflies too! I then used my Cinch to punch the holes for the binding wires.

Next I took my 12x12 papers and folded them to make pockets, like this...
12x12 Paper

Fold in Half

Then again

Finally fold into a quarter

Once folded I punched in the holes again using my Cinch to match up with the covers...I then stamped and embossed on the front of each pocket...using the Indigo blu stamps, VersaMark, Gold Detail embossing powder for the grass stamp and Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Yellow for the dragonfly stamp...

Finishing off I added the 'Gems' letters, flowers and gems to the front cover. I put together the pages and back cover adding the binding wires then lastly the ribbons...All that was left to do was add my gems!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by
See you next time
