Large French Collection Folio
Inside view of different page lengths & widths, pocket on left hand side for tags that have been embossed with texture fades and cut with on the edge dies. This also shows stencils, remnant rubs, stamps and inside die cut of Fleur de lis. Add lots of ephemera as you build.
Next page has die cut gears, found relatives on the left and a fold out page on the right:
Next page has a heavyweight plastic piece and remnant rubs - cut from the Mini Cabinet Card die.
Next page has a found relative card on left with silver painted mini clipboard diecut and glassine pocket containing two tags on right. I used Kraft cardstock to mat some of the photos:
Next page used the trellis die (with scattered "inside cuts" from trellis) and paper scraps on the spine areas:
I add a page to the "back" of the folio even if the inside back has been covered. NOTE - I use inked paper reinforcements to strengthen holes around elastic band:
