Amazon Folder Inspired by Julie Ann Lee for Paper Artsy
I've been working on a big project over the last couple of days, the gorgeous inspiration of Julie Ann Lee! I don't need to go into too much detail on what I have done as you can see Julie Ann's instructions over on the Paper Artsy blog here and on her own blog here. I have almost completely copied her, except where I didn't have exactly the same items as I was so impressed with the originality of the idea and the composition and choice of colours. We've had loads of these Amazon folders over the years and I have never thought to recyle them before but they are perfect, as you get a fold out pocket inside to tuck a present, and you can peel off layers to reveal all the wonderful corrugated texture!
Here's a close up view showing some little seed beads I added to the hearts:-
I thought the turquoise ribbon would be perfect but I didn't have enough. I had some in cream so I painted it with Beach Hut. You can hardly tell the difference!
I am entering this into the Inspired by Julie Ann Paper Artsy Challenge.

Lucy, this is gorgeous! I really loved looking at it! Those hearts look lovely with the beads. What a great idea to use the ribbon - and doesn't Beach Hut look good, you'd never know! Those bare trees look fantastic and drew my eye immediately! I am so happy that you liked my project and that it inspired you to create this lovely gift. Stationery inside sounds like a brilliant idea! Somebody is going to be very lucky to discover this under the Christmas tree! xxxReplyDelete
