Made this wreath for a great friend for Christmas.  I used Close To My Heart retired fabric, For Always, because it would go so well with her decor.  I did add a little other fabric after realizing how light in color is was.  These wreaths are made on a wire frame and you tie on the strips.  My strips were cut 2" x 8 1/2".
I used a total of 2 1/2" of fabric for mine.

I choose the new Hopscotch Paper collection to make this fun Waterfall Folio

This folio is 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" and has hard chip board covers.
I used Artiste Cartridge to make the bow. The saying is from C1594 Treasured Friendship.

Inside you will find a waterfall on the right side with room for 15 photos.
On the left side I decided to add a flip up decorative cover.  The saying here if from 
D1602 A Budding Friendship
The flower is from our Art Philosophy Cartridge.

Here is the flap up, room for additional photos.  The bottom left decorative square is a pocket that has a Colonial White tag inside perfect for journaling.

This is the complete selection of patterned papers in X7194B Hopscotch.  It also comes with 2 sheets of Flaxen and Glacier cardstock, 1 piece each of Smoothie and Sunset cardstock.  I added the Colonial cardstock to make my project.  If you would like to make one of your own you can find a tutorial at
