Steampunk Serengeti Blog Hop 2021 Post #23 August 28

    Once again Leigh is leading a hop...

LeighSBDesigns Steampunk Serengeti Blog Hop!
August 6 - 31, 2021

Yesterday I shared this folder:

Today I am sharing some more of my project - I have made a little 'fold-up' to contain the above, and some ATCs.

On the back I added the cut file from Steampunk Serengeti Collage,
 cut in brown, on a layer of green.
On the first fold I used Africa Steampunk Serengeti Collage, cut in green, brown and yellow about 3.5 inches wide.
I used the same steampunk Africa cut as a stencil to make the image on the front.
 I cut the words from giraffe steampunk several times in green and adhered it here and there.


The instructions for the folder are as follows:

 I took a double sided piece of 12 by 12 - this is from Stampin' Up.
I scored it horizontally at 3.75 in from top and bottom and vertically at 3in and 9in.

I cut slits as shown and folded tabs on the top and bottom side pieces.

I used narrow double sided tape to stick these down to make the pockets,
 and glued down the tabs. 
The pockets are for ATCs. I trimmed the side pieces so they would fold in easier.
 These fold over the mini-booklet folder.

On the back two middle sections I stuck double sided tape and then ribbon.

Now it's time to decorate and finish... the back and front are decorated as first described.


The next pictures show the finished item with some ATCs inserted:

You have already seen the camel ATC if you have been following the hop.

The bat ATC is a re-share using Grimm Batleigh - one that I made for my bat box in one of Leigh's earlier hops.

And yes, Nan, there are bats in the Serengeti...

Watch out for some more ATCs...

I will link this project to Leigh's Linky

Happy Crafting!
