Watch this video to see how to shape the Classic Petunias.

Instructions: I first create two folders by cutting papers from the collection and using my scor pal. Measuring 5.5 x 9.5" and scoring them in half, I cut papers in the collection to match the size and add to inside of the folders and add additional journal cards and photo mats to create about 15 pages worth. I put all papers together and use my crop o dile to punch holes so I can add some rings. I punched out tabs using the We R memory keepers tab punch and ink with dusty concord. 

I stamped and cut a set of the large petunias, and a set of the small petunias for the cover along with leaves. I stamped and cut the corner part from the Bouquet die, I colored all the leaves with mowed lawn and the flowers I used dusty concord. Following Emma Lou's video I created my petunias and added stamens. I used the frosting powder and crystal clear to detail my flowers. I colored the seam binding using the reinker and placing it in a bag to color it. I then heat set it to dry to the seam binding will wrinkle. I then cut a journal card for the cover to create a small flip; and I have flips throughout this mini Folio. Attach your album rings and add some ribbon. Wrap ribbon around the entire folio and add some gold thread. Complete as shown.
