Travel Folio and Huge Announcement

Today we made a travel folio to keep those receipts, documents, or just memorabilia in when you are traveling. I love making these little folios, so easy and simple, but look so nice. And of course we went with a beach theme since I love the beach and wish I was there now lol. All the links to the products I used are below and the link to the full tutorial as well.

2 pieces of Chipboard cut at 4'x7'
Book Spine heavy card-stock cut at 3"x7"
Score the spine piece at 3/4" on each end of the long side, then score at every 1/8" between those two score lines, creating the spine fold. 

2 pieces of card-stock for the cover cut at 9'x5' inches
Place on outside starting at where the chipboard meets the spine, leaving about the same amount of overhang on all three sides.

Flip over cut out your corners and fold excess over creating your book cover. 

Inside cover piece, cut at  3 7/8'x 6 7/8' inches. You will need 2 of these. 

Glue these on the inside covering the raw edges of the outer paper. 

2 pcs of card-stock cut at 4x4.5, score at every 1/2" on the 4.5" side.
Accordion fold this

5 sheets of paper for the folio pockets cut at 6 3/4x3/78"

These will glue on the mountain folds of the accordion pcs, use a strong glue.

Pockets: 2 cut at 4 1/5x5 score at 1/2" on two long sides and one short side. Put scor tape on these folds cutting out the corners and glue on the right side. 

Decorate as desired
