Mask Storage

My crafty friend, Lynne (Lindy-Loo), made a great storage folder for her masks.  At a local monthly crop and craft day last Saturday, I decided to make my own mask storage folder, following her instructions..... in fact I sat next to her in case I got stuck!
I bought a pack of coordinating scrapbooking papers about 8 years ago, so I decided it was about time I used them!  I covered chipboard for the covers, the hinge is inked and embossed grunge paper,  something I've never used before - thanks for the grunge paper, Lynne. 


I used an envelope maker to make the envelopes from the scrapbooking papers and cut off one of the flaps on each one. It was a bit of trial and error to make the envelopes the size I needed for the masks to slot inside, as one of my masks was slightly larger that 6 x 6 and the size I needed was not listed on the envelope maker.  I inked through the masks on squares of white card and attached them to the front of each envelope, so I know which mask is inside each envelope.  Split rings hold the folder together, so more envelope pages can be added.  The finished folder is kept closed by tied ribbon to stop the masks escaping!  

As I used white card oddments, I'm popping over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 155
