Vintage Christmas

Hi everyone and Happy Holidays.  Today is the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey and we are celebrating the season with Vintage Christmas.
In October I was lucky enough to be able to take a class with Tammy Tutterow at one of our local stores and it was a blast.  She is a wonderful teacher, sharing her tips and tricks, and a lovely person as well.  We used the Tim Holtz Folio and decorated it with so much vintage goodness.  Here is the result of the class, hope you enjoy.

As you can see the front is packed with lots of Tim's vintage pieces and has many layers.

When the folio is first opened there are two tag books that are separate pieces.

When the tag books are removed, there are three more layers to explore - all with places to add a photo or a special gift tag.

Each layer folds forward to reveal the one behind.

This was great fun to make and the class was at night so had to stay up past my bedtime but it was worth it.
Don't forget to pop over the A Vintage Journey to see what the rest of the team has made.

Have a wonderful and creative weekend,
