An Easy Collage Project

 


Hello my Friend..... I've been away for a while.

I missed you!

How was your summer ?



I came upon this accordion file at the .99 cent Store.

These files are great for receipts, recipes or any papers you need to control.

I even liked the ribbon closer-



The back was plain.


The file has sections marked with the alphabet.





I  used some MOD PODGE and scraps of paper,

lace, fabric. old maps, and sheet music to cover over the old graphic.

No real plan, just start to layer and stop when you like

what you created!








I'll share a couple of of pictures I used.

These came from The Graphic Fairy 

Hundreds of wonderful vintage graphics!

You can save and print from here or you to-

This is the back side.












Collage is fun !

These accordion-style files  were very inexpensive, 

and they can be easily personalized.

I think I will pick up a couple more to give as gifts.


Thanks for the visit!

  7. What a great idea. I have been wanting to make small groups of cards; this would be a lovely way to present them. Will have to be on the lookout for these files!

    1. Kathy,
      It's so rewarding to lay out some random scraps and just start layering and see what it becomes- I'm going back to see if there are more available. I should just pick them up. I will let you know.
