Inside we put a notepad and made a pocket and some notecards/postcards and one greeting card. The idea is that each of us can use our folios to keep track of cards and notes that need to be sent or other to do's and to keep a few notecards handy with maybe even some stamps in the pocket
We used the Post Card background stamp for the card and notecards and the accents were done with the Postage Due stamp set. We also used the coordinating postage punch.

2013/14 In color dsp stack
Chalk talk stamp set and framelits
Sweet Essentials stamp set
Butterfly punches (both)
In color ink pads
Tulips frame embossing folder
Paper doily (cover)
This project features the designer series paper stack in the 2013/14 in colors as well as the Chalk Talk stamp set and coordinating framelits. We'll also be using the Sweet Essentials stamps set - such a versatile set of greetings.
The card folio above was made out of a piece of 12 x 12 dsp. You fold it in half one way and then in half the other way and then you snip off the areas shown. If you want a tutorial ,
Dee Slater has one here. Hers is different than mine, but it will help you visually get the base of it if my instructions above weren't clear.

This cute little tea bag holder/card is made out of Afternoon Picnic DSP. You will need 2 pieces of dsp of your choosing to make this project as follows:
- one piece 3 1/2 x 6 3/4" (score at 3 1/8 and 3 5/8)
- one piece at 5 1/2 x 6 1/2" (score at 3 and 3 1/2" on the 6 1/2 side and then 1/2 and 3" on the 5 1/2 side)
I have seen several of these made by different demonstrators, but I'm going to link to Dawn today because she not only has this project but also a video to help you if you are interested in making one of your own:)
The larger piece of dsp ends up making the 2 pockets shown above for inside. I put a little tag/note card that I can write a message in one of them and a tea bag in the other...my tea bag packets were just a hair too big for the pocket size, but I have seen these with tea bags that fit perfectly (I think they must have been the bigalow ones)
Stamp sets used on this project were: From my Heart, Blessings from Heaven, Lovely Little Labels, and even Chalk Talk (just for the border on the tag)
